Minigames are types of games that can be played alone or with other players. Many multiplayer servers include a wide range of different minigames. The most common type of minigames are PvP minigames, where players fight each other. There are also minigames where players build competitively. These are not all types of minigames. People in the community tend to be creating new ones.
One popular minigame is Spleef, where players must destroy the blocks from underneath the opponents' feet.
Ultra Hardcore, or UHC, is a minigame where players must either complete the game or defeat all the other teams without naturally regenerating health.
In SkyWars, players start on a mini island with limited resources and attempt to get rid of all the other players.
TNT wars features even teams of players building TNT cannons to try to blow up the other team(s).
In BedWars, players use various blocks to protect their bed while attempting to break other teams’ beds. The player can respawn an infinite number of times until their bed is broken. Some multiplayer servers also have CakeWars, a variant with cake instead of a bed.
Players create something with a topic, and the builds are judged. The best build wins.
Parkour games require players to jump onto platforms to get to the finish line. Often times, an external threat is added, like a timer or removal of platforms.
