Survival Games is one of the Minigames of Minecraft Central. It has been around from the start. There are 75 arenas and 28 maps. A maximum of 24 players may play at one arena at the same time, and 15 players are required to start the game.

The amount of required players used to be 6 but was increased to 10 at the same time when the Minigame Lobby was added to Survival Games on the 16th of June 2016. The requirement was changed to 24 with the SG update of 29th of May 2017. It was changed to 15 players on the 13th of March 2018.

General infoEdit

The idea of Survival Games is to be the last player standing. Players try to kill others and also fight against starvation. There are chests around the maps in which you can find food, armour and weapons from. There is a 30 minute time limit. If 30 minutes has passed and there are still over 3 players alive, an automatic death match will start. Death match also naturally starts if there are 3 players left. The chests refill after 15 minutes.

On the 29th of May 2017 Team Survival Games was added. The players could use /team NAME to find themselves a pair. There were 12 teams in a game of Team Survival Games. The game worked similarly to the Solo Survival Games. Team Survival Games was removed on the 29th of January 2019 due to unpopularity.

On the 30th of May 2017 a lightning effect was added when players die. On the 31st of May 2017 an explosion sound was added to inform players of a death. The ability to vote for maps was added on the 29th of June 2017, along with a new waiting lobby.
