#1 Minecraft Bedwars

Becoming one of the most popular Minecraft minigames in 2017, Minecraft Bedwars comes at the top spot in this list. As a strategy-based minigame, bedwars is great for all types of players.

Bedwars starts you on your own private island with a single bed. Your goal is simple: protect your bed from being broken by other players and become the last player standing.

On your island, you will find resource generators providing you with gold and iron Ingots every few seconds. You can purchase blocks to defend your bed. You can also buy swords, armor, and tools to destroy the enemy team's beds more efficiently.

The easiest way to start playing Bedwars in Minecraft is through a Minecraft server. Minecraft servers allow people from all over the world to connect to the same Minecraft world. Several servers offer the Bedwars minigame, but the most popular is the Hypixel Network.

To connect to the Hypixel Network, go to the "multiplayer" tab of Minecraft and click "add server." Once there, type in the following under "Server Address"

#2 Party Games in Minecraft

When playing with a large group of friends, there will always be disagreements about what game should be played. If this situation sounds all too familiar, we recommend checking out Hypixel's party gamemode. This gamemode will allow you to play eight minigames as a mini-tournament. Whoever gathers the most points from all eight games wins the entire match.

Perhaps the best part about Party Games on the Hypixel Network is that the eight minigames selected are drawn from a pool of 26 possible minigames, each with different styles/goals. This means regardless of your skills, you will find a minigame that fits your playstyle.

#3 Minecraft Skywars

Looking for a heavily PvP-based minigame? If so, you will probably enjoy skywars.

Skywars in Minecraft is a fast-paced PvP game where several players are placed on individual small islands filled with loot chests. Once the game starts, you can run around your island gathering supplies, including building blocks, armor, and weapons. You can either bridge and conquer other players' islands or venture onto the main middle island, which contains several high-value loot chests.

However, be careful! The last player standing is the winner of the game, and it's easy to fall into the void or be killed by another player if you let your guard down.

#4 Minecraft Sumo

The goal of the Sumo minigame in Minecraft is extremely simple: push the other player off the platform's edge. For this reason, it is a great game to play with your friends in a minigame server or your own multiplayer survival world.

In addition, unlike traditional PvP-based games, sumo does not involve killing the other player. Instead, you are supposed only to push them using your fists. This dynamic makes for an intriguing but challenging minigame.

If you want to make your own sumo arena in a survival world, start by building a 13x13 circular platform. If you would like, you can make this platform larger or smaller, depending on how quickly you would like the rounds to go.

Next, dig around the platform to create a pit, which players will fall into when they are pushed off. If you would like to raise the steaks of the game, we recommend filling the bottom of the pit with lava. However, if you want to be kind to your friends, you can fill it with water instead.

Finally, decorate the sides of the pit and the platform. If you do not care how your arena looks, you can simply leave it bare. However, you should at least add two or four spots on the platform to mark where players should start.

Simply add and join the server IP "" in the Minecraft multiplayer menu. Once in the game, you can go to the duels lobby and select the "sumo" game.

The Minecraft Dropper minigame is a non-combative Minecraft minigame that requires you to free fall to the bottom of an obstacle course-like map without dying. While the first two or three levels may be easy, you will quickly find challenging maps or levels requiring complex, precision aerial maneuvers to reach the bottom. Are you up for a challenge?
