VampireZ

 

VampireZ Title(minecraft-double.ru)

Hey guys! Today I am going to talk about the Minecraft mini-game VampireZ. At the beginning of the game, you have to choose whether to start out as a vampire or human. However, if you choose to start as a vampire, chances are slim that you will actually be one since only 3-5 players start as vampires. There are usually around 25 people in each game. The aim of the game for the vampires is to hunt down and kill all of the humans. There are also waves of zombies helping out the vampires by trying to kill the humans. Once you die as a human, you become a vampire. The aim of the game for the humans is to try to hide from the vampires until the game is over. When playing the game as a human you have blindness which limits some of your ability to see. But, if you play the game as a vampire, you have perfect vision. The game is only about 10 minutes long. The humans start out with only a wooden sword. The vampires start out with a vampire tooth. (This is is a ghast tear with a level 3 enchantment of sharpness that was renamed “Vampire Tooth”.) For the humans, after around 1-1 1/2 minutes, they get points to spend in their shop. Vampires are similar except they get more points sooner. In the shop, humans can buy food and equipment like armor and weapons. In the shop, vampires can buy abilities like being able to fly, a jump boost, and strength boost. If the vampires are able to kill all of the humans, they win. But, if at least one human is able to survive the 10 minutes, the humans win. In my experience, the vampires usually win. I also think that being a vampire is more fun than being a human. Here is a VampireZ map:

TNT Spleef

TNT Spleef Opener

Hey guys, today’s blog is about the Minecraft mini-game TNT Spleef, aka TNT Bow Spleef. TNT Spleef has the same concept as normal Spleef. Instead of snow as the floor like normal Spleef, the floor is made out of TNT. Also, instead of a shovel, when starting out TNT Spleef you begin with a stack of arrows and a bow with Flame I and Infinity I enchantments. These enchantments give the bow the power to light things on fire and never run out of arrows. The objective of the game is to shoot the TNT out from underneath all of the other players with your bow. Since your bow has Flame I, when you shoot the TNT, it falls and explodes. This makes the players, if they are standing on the block, fall too. After you fall, you immediately die. So, just like normal Spleef, if you are good at parkour (jumping from one object to another), then you will probably be good at TNT Spleef. On some servers, players can reset the floor themselves so that all of the blocks come back, but on others, the server  automatically resets the floor after a set time. TNT Spleef is a very competitive game. You always need to be watching your back because you never know when someone is right behind you. It is also a very popular mini-game, so if you go on a popular server, chances are that TNT Spleef will be on the server. You should definitely try this mini-game.

Bridges

Bridges Opener (plus.google.com)

Hello fellow Minecraftians! Today’s blog is about the Minecraft mini-game Bridges, also known as Bridges PVP (Player vs. Player). It is a lot like the mini-game Walls. There are four teams, and the object of the game is to kill the other teams and have a least one player left on your team alive. The last team with at least one player alive wins. At the beginning of the game, you start out on a big island with the rest of your team. Each team has its own island. You’ve got about 15 minutes to mine, craft, and build anything you want. After the 15 minutes are up, it is an all out battle against the other teams. On some servers after the 15 minutes are up, bridges fall out of the sky and connect the islands together, but on others, players have to build their own bridges. You need these bridges to get to the other teams and defeat them. Once you get to their island, you can steal anything you want. If you fall off the edge of your island or bridge, then you fall into the void, which kills you. Bridges is a fun game to play with friends (mostly when they are on your team… but unfortunately, the server randomly chooses your teammates).

This is what a Bridges map looks like:

Super Smash Mobs

Super Smash Mobs Opener(youtube.com)

Super Smash Mobs is a mini-game from the server MinePlex. It is sort of like Hunger Games. Each person gets a kit with designated special abilities. Here are a couple kits: skeleton (bow, ax, and unlimited arrows), slime, spider, and iron golem. My favorite kit is the skeleton. The skeleton is good at long range, but if you use the kit right, it can be good at melee fighting. You can get other kits by buying them with gems (or mineplex money). Here are some of the kits that you can buy: enderman, creeper, wolf, witch, etc. During a battle, each player looks like the type of kit he is. For instance, someone who had the spider kit would look like a spider. The point of the game is to kill everybody else, whether it’s knocking the player into the void or dealing enough damage to kill them. A Super Smash Mobs map is made up of four or five little islands and then one big island in the middle. The islands are easily within jumping range.  The maps are pretty small because there are only four or five players in each battle. This is a very fun and addictive game.

Walls

The Walls(Youtube.com) 1

Hey guys, today’s topic is about the Minecraft mini-game Walls. Now, from looking at the name, you are probably thinking it is a lame game. Well, you are wrong (in my oppinion). This is pretty much team Hunger Games. There are four teams with sand walls separating each team from one another. Sometimes there are one or two chests, but usually no more than that. The amount of players in a game can vary from 20 to 100. Each team starts in a corner of the arena, and when the game starts, the players have around 15 minutes to mine, craft, enchant, and build to prepare for the arising battle. After the 15 minutes, the sand walls fall, and it turns in to an all out battle. If you die, you cannot fight anymore, but you can fly around and watch the battle. The last team  with at least one player alive wins. If you play Walls, your best bet of winning would be to build a skybase and let the enemies come to you.

Your arena might look like this:

Spleef

Spleef (Youtube)

Today I will be talking about the Minecraft mini-game Spleef! In Spleef you and a few other players are in a snow–floored arena. Each person gets to start out with a diamond shovel. With the diamond shovel, you and all of the other players have to break the snow underneath one another. Once a lot of the floor is gone, you have to jump around and be careful not to fall. Usually, underneath the snow floor, there is a pit of lava. This gives the players an extra incentive to win because they will die if they fall. On some servers, there are multiple levels. So, if you fall off the first level, then you land on the next and keep playing until you fall off every single level. If you are the last person alive, then you win the game! Chances are, if you are good at parkour, then you will be good at Spleef. Spleef is a fun and popular game!

Hunger Games

Hunger Games

There is a Minecraft mini-game called Hunger Games. Now, you are probably thinking, “Oh, it must be like the movie, Hunger Games.” Well, you guessed right. You and 10-50 other people are all coexisting in the same world trying to eliminate each other. Once the game starts, your first task is to get supplies out of all of the chests scattered around the world. Usually, there are chests right next to your starting point. Most servers give you invincibility for around a minute. This gives you enough time to get away from everybody. The objective of the game is to kill all of the other players and be the last one alive. A few servers will allow you to get some extra supplies to start out with. This is very rare for a server to do this and is always a surprise. Hunger Games is a good game, but it can get very competitive. Personally, Hunger Games to me is a very addictive game. You should always limit your time on it because you won’t be able to stop playing it! Everybody should try this mini-game even if you haven’t seen the movie. (I have not seen the movie, and I play the game!)

The world that you play in might look like this:

Skywars

Hello everybody, today I will be talking about my favorite Minecraft mini-game, Skywars! Skywars is a game where everyone is stranded on their own deserted island with a couple chests full of supplies. Usually, there is a big island in the middle of all the other islands, which is full of chests. (Sometimes there is just a single chest in the middle instead of a big island.) For supplies, the chests are full of blocks, weapons, armor, and tools. All the players battle by shooting each other off into the void or building a bridge to the other players’ islands and melee fighting. The last person alive wins! On most Minecraft servers, if you win or kill somebody, you get points to spend in the server shop. Usually, the shop will sell armor, bows & arrows, blocks, and snowballs. On most occasions, if you donate money to the server, you will get kits. A kit is a bunch of supplies you get to start out the next game. This is a great mini-game, and I suggest everyone try it!
