These are the TOP 6 FREE MINIGAME PLUGINS FOR MINECRAFT 2022
How Features Are Been Rated?
After installing and testing countless plugins I have used the following features as a pro and con, to then decide what makes it onto the list. The version ive used is 1.16.4 and 1.19 (The current latest version) and 1.19.2 for Bedrock (the latest version currently)
I have tested this for cross compatibility with the use of Geyser and Floodgate. All plugins listed must be at least usable on both versions, with most to all game features available for both editions.
For help with installing Geyser/Floodgate click here for a video tutorial.

I have chosen plugins that provide the easiest setup and also provide video tutorials showing you exactly how to install and use all the features on the plugin.

The plugins will not only need to work with both Java and Bedrock but also be compatible with Multiverse (Core, Portals, Inventories) Essentialsx, Vault, Holographic Displays, Placeholder Api, Villager Market, Warp Gui, Grief prevention, Spartan Anti cheat, Lucky Perms, Clear lag, Discord SRV and of course them self’s whilst been ran on different worlds on the same server.

Mine chess minigame plugin

Setup only takes a few commands that you can find here on the guide. Once setup you have a complete chess game on your server.
Players have a time limit and also have to abide by the actual rules of chess. With your tool you can select your unit and it even shows you the available spaces that you can move it into.

This game is based around the simple game of hide and seek. One player is the seeker and the rest have 60 seconds to hide.
An amazing yet simple plugin to add to any server, the simple design requires almost no set up. Simply add a world or rename a world to SybHideAndSeek, change the world borders to suit your level and thats it.. your done!
The way this plugins works is who ever is in the world called SybHideAndSeek at the time a player types /hideandseek will be taken to the spawn, one player is chosen and a seeker and who ever is left gets to hide.
It keeps the seeker in the dark and facing down allowing 60 seconds for the hiders to be found. Once the game starts the world borders will start to come in on different time increments.
The seeker is given a sword to find and kill the hiders along with a slight speed whilst the hiders are made to go slightly slower as not to outrun the seeker.
One found or not found in time the plugin will teleport everyone back tot he main spawn for that worlds and you can easily go again or simply go back to spawn.
For the plugin page click here it also included full installation instructions on the download page.
