Quicksand is no longer maintained
-What is it?-
Quicksand is a unique minigame based off of the popular minigame TNTRUN (as seen on YouTube). The goal of the game is to run across a layer of sand and gravel, creating large gaps in the process. If a player falls through a hole, they move on to the next layer in the arena. The game continues until all the players fall through the last layer and into a pool of water. When players hit water, their game is over and they are taken out of the arena. The last player still playing is the winner!
Using Quicksand is easy: simply build your arena (3+ layers are recommended), set the different teleport locations, add the join/leave signs, and enjoy! Quicksand allows for full customization of your arenas, from floor material to the countdown to the minimum player requirement. Download today and add a brand-new minigame that is sure to entertain your players!

quicksand.sign - Create Join Signs!
If you don't want your players using /qs join to join the game, you can use Join Signs. To make a Join Sign, place a sign on a wall and follow this example:
[Quicksand]To use a Join Sign from then on afterward, simply right-click the sign to join the arena lobby. There are no extra permissions required to use a Join Sign, either.
-Setting up the game-
First you want to build an arena. A good size arena has a few different levels, but yours can have as many as you want. Your arena floor must consist of 2 layers: a layer of tnt, and a layer of sand or gravel on top. Floor materials can also be configured in Quicksand's config.yml! Make two or three more layers under the first one until you think your players will be satisfied with what you've made. When your arena is complete, add a layer of water under your bottom layer. When players fall in water, their game is over and they lose. After that is done, go to the top layer and run command /qs setspawn. This is where players will spawn when the game starts. To set the place where players go before the game, use command /qs setlobby. Finally, return to your minigame world spawn or hub and run the command /qs setEnd. Now you're good to go! Use a Join Sign or use the join command to play the game! After the winner is announced, the arena will regenerate itself so you can play again! Happy running!
