Tournaments

Tournaments will be ran daily and will be a fun way for you to compete for prizes!

You can win spawners and crate keys from these:


New Harvester Hoe Enchants + Fixes

We've increased the chances you can win rarer crate keys (Elite / Supreme) based on your hoe level.

You can also win higher-tier spawners such as Blaze, IG, Villager, and Witch from higher-level Spawner Finder Enchants.

We have also introduced the new Money Pouch enchant. This allows you to earn random amounts of money as you farm.

We have also increased the max level for some hoe enchants.


New Delivery Man!

The delivery man is waiting for you daily with 4 potential crate keys!
All you have to do is link your discord using /discord link.


Printer is Perfected

We've added a new /printer mode and enabled Badlion Client printer.

Shoutout to Jamie Asprey, Ross Asprey, case, and MTatt for being some of our most active beta testers.

Rule Changes

Firstly, we understand a lot of miscommunication happened last map with our rules. Thus, we've decided to do a major overhaul on them. Click the link below to read our new rules:

Here are the main changes we've made:

Re-structured the island strike system (thanks Emmanuele)
Clarified the island hiding value rule: You cannot hide value in chests, PVs, echests, or anything that isn't placing them at your island.
Implemented a roster system, so rotating is now allowed!
Decreased alt limit per island from 5 -> 4.
Implemented captcha systems for mining/farming, for less staff involvement in individual islands
Now, we will no longer refund items lost due to bugs, lag, downtime, or other issues. The reasoning for this is, players can lie and our network is heavily stress tested & bug tested.

If you have any question on a rule, it's best to create a ticket in our Discord (discord.gg/minigame) and ask before you try something!


Economy Changes

The best strategy for your island this map will be mining and farming. This is because you can no longer buy spawners from /shop.

Spawners can only be obtained from crates, or by farming now.

This is because we want to have an interactive economy where players don't sit and AFK. Nobody likes an economy like that!

Here are the main changes we've made to the eco:

Buffed sugarcane
Buffed all minerals
Villager and Witch spawners can no longer be purchased in /shop, only obtained from mining/farming or monthly crates/crate keys.

New Events

Any donator can now host an event using /event host. There is a cooldown of 1 hour.

You can host events such as Sumo, One in the Chamber, Spleef, TNT Tag, and more!

View all our events with the new /events GUI:

Summary: Biggest Changes

New Website Unveil!

Know who your competition is quickly, by checking out the current in-game statistics with the new leaderboards feature! In-game statistics will be mirrored straight from in-game to our website; island tops, balance tops! You name it - you can see it!

https://miniga.me/

Our leaderboards system is being revamped and will be out shortly following our 2.0 launch.

Fun Economy

We know that holding your left click button to make a couple bucks can get very boring.

In addition to our mining economy, you can look forward to in-game events that will help boost your wallet, and reach the top of the leaderboards!

Essence Event

One of the examples of our new fun economy would be our essence event!

Players will challenge each other in a 5 minute-long competition to see who can mine the most amount of sugar cane, rewarding in a generous prize!

New PVP Events

While Skyblock may not necessarily be PvP oriented, we've decided to bring back some fun player versus player elements into our launch!

Experience the new additions with both boss, and PvP events on our map during it's release @ April 16th, 2PM EST!

Check out one of our new events, called the Vault, where you maneuver your way through a maze - finding OP loot hidden in chests!

Upgraded Hardware & Security

In addition to our consistent content updates, and system administration, we've brought on two more members to our development team! Our hardware has been heavily upgraded to be able to support the large influx of players that we're expecting in our 2.0 release!

Bedrock support has also been added to the game! This will be implemented before our 2.0 launch.

Advanced AI-based Captcha Technology

We understand, and have understood the frustration of scripters being apart of island tops, especially the auto-farmers. We've heard you, and made some top-of-the-line changes to our software, by adding a captcha feature in-game! People that are caught, will instantly be punished to prevent any advantages to their island!

We've worked really hard on this launch and hope to see all of you on Saturday!

I'd like to personally thank you all for sticking with us and remaining a part of this community.


I give you my word that we will continue to update, upgrade, and innovate our network til the very end. We do not have any "playercount" or a "donation" goals that we'll hit and then stop working.


MiNiGAME will remain a network for years to come, and we will never let our foot off the gas.

For island bundles or trailer crate keys, please open a ticket in our Discord. Thanks!

Saturday, April 16th at 2PM EST – our 2.0 is unveiled to the world.

See you there.
