    HungerGames is a simple yet fun, and very lightweight PvP arena system.
    It provides advanced kits, spawns, and a very simple arena setup. If you've never heard of the books/movies HungerGames, it's basically a free for all. You must hunt for food and items, and attempt to kill others before they kill you. The last man standing wins!
    Unlike some HungerGames plugins, this one does not require you to setup a whole server for the game. You can just easily setup multiple arenas anywhere in the world.

    This is a revamp of one on my old favourites that has since been abandoned.
    This plugin was originally developed by bob7l and then later taken on by Spoopy. It's now my turn to bring this plugin into the 1.13+ world.

    - This plugin will only work on 1.13+ (1.14 is currently working, but not fully tested, use with caution, and make sure to back up regularly)
    - This plugin will NOT work on 1.12.2 or lower and will never be updated to work on those versions. If you would like to try this plugin on those version you can download Spoopy's old version HERE

    - Create multiple arenas for your players to play in
    - Auto-updating lobby signs
    - Custom min/max players and arena timers per arena
    - Very lightweight
    - Does not require its own server or world
    - Vault economy support
    - Simple arena setup
    - Random items will generate in arena chests
    - Bonus chests will generate even more items (separate loot table)
    - Per-Arena Loot Tables allows for even more customization
    - Spectating Feature allowing players to watch the game close up
    - Smart mob spawning engine
    - Highly configurable
    - Customizable kits
    - Per-Arena Kits
    allows for even MORE customization
    - Customizable messages
    - Player teams
    - Full rollback System
    - Leaderboard placeholders via PlaceholderAPI
    - World border system, pushes players towards the centre of the game when time is running out

    I prefer not to be one of those people posting 5 updates a day, therefor I will try to do maximum 2 updates a week. I will post some "beta" updates on BitBucket, which will include small updates as I fix them. You are more than welcome to check them out HERE. Keep in mind these builds might have more issues as they are BETA builds. As always please report any issues you find on our BitBucket Issue Tracker!

    *see WIKI*

    - Config.yml
    - Items.yml

    - HungerGames stores wins in a leaderboard file, this data can be accessed via (PlaceholderAPI) placeholders and used in other plugins such as scoreboard or hologram plugins.

    - HungerGames has a pretty open API, check out our JavaDocs

    *coming soon™️*

    Since Spoopy's version I have done some major changes to the plugin. I went thru the discussion tab on his resource and made sure to fix any bugs that were reported, and implement features I felt would fit nicely.
    - New tab completer system, making it easier to use commands
    - /hg stop all command - Stops all active arenas
    - Randomized spawn locations.
    - Added more current mobs to the mob spawn list
    - Moved all hard coded messages to a new language.yml file which can be completely customized
    - Added a sound when player's die in the arena, mimicking the "Fallen Tributes" sound in the movies.
    - Changed chest drops from pistons to ender chests
    - Updated death messages
    - Changed leave messages to show the name of the arena a player left
    - Fixed an issue where admins could not place blocks in the arena after its already been created.
    - Fixed a big issue with the signs always saying "STOPPED" - Added a new game status "READY"
    - Added an option to run commands/send messages when a player wins the game (Can be used to give vote keys, Items, whatever you want really)

    - Fixed some other small errors I came across when testing.

    - If you have questions you can ask in the discussion tab. Myself or any other users will be glad to help.
    - If you would like to report a bug or request a new feature please use the BitBucket Issue Tracker (This way I can keep track of all bugs/features as well as anyone else can see the progress on these)
    - We also have a DISCORD where you can join to ask questions or get help if you are stuck. (When you join, you will see "Hunger-Games" on the left under "PROJECTS-SUPPORT")

    I appreciate all reviews, but I do ask that you keep them to the point of how this plugin operates. DO NOT use reviews to report bugs or ask for new features to be added. These will be ignored. Please use the correct channels to ask for new features or report bugs.

    Great plugin! I've had no issues with it at all. I like the idea of personal scores, but maybe you can add a feature where there is a placeholder for the team score (both players' scores added together)

    Really enjoying the plugin. Only thing I'd like to see added is a spectator mode and potentially a leaderboard

      Hey thank you for the great review.
      Im definitely planning on a spectator mode, Im just trying to trying to think of a good way to do it.
      Im also planning on adding some PlaceholderAPI placeholders for leaderboards, just kinda waiting for 1.14.x and PlaceholderAPI to get all settled before I really dive into it.

    I asked for a feature and while it hasn't been added yet, the author seems trustworthy enough and I trust that it'll be added. (Custom player heads for hg kits)

      Thank you for the 5 stars.
      Hopefully this feature will be as easy to add as I think it should be :)
    Version: 4.1.1
    Superb plugin, dev is nice as allways. Performance looks decent and ready for a Production Server. Code looks good as allways!

      Thank you very much for the 5 star rating.
      I wanted to make sure to keep this plugin lightweight and performant.
      I have had a few suggestions from people that I feel would kill performance, so Im doing my best to keep it a lightweight plugin.

      Im glad to see you are enjoying it. Its definitely a fun plugin, and players seem to love it from the feedback I have heard from many servers.

    Super easy to use, clean and customizable.

    An addition of features would make it even better such as leaderboards and spectator mode. other than that the foundation is there.

    Keep up the good work!

    Tysm for the hungergames plugin!! Though i have a problem, when a player kills a player it doesn't register that a player is killed, where an error pops up in the console and I don't know the cause of it;(. How can i send this error to you in some way? I feel like a plugin is somewhat interfering with the hungergames plugin.
