    Hey guys!

    I have thought of a new mini-game for Pearl (mini-game being Drop Zone or Mine Run)! It is a popular mini-game called 'Spleef'. The objective is to use your shovel to mine blocks beneath other players, causing them to fall down into lava/another layer. Consequently, the last player who hasn't fallen wins!

    What is so special about this idea?

    I have already built a Spleef Arena in creative, complete with a safe exit (no dying if you get 'Spleefed'), a viewing zone, the area where you fight, and an area where you can view player's wins - how many times they have won.
    A Spleef mini-game would be a cool edition to the server's list of 'games' and I'm already resource gathering to begin building the arena; even if this does not become an official Pearl mini-game, i'd still like to play with my friends. :)
    I have brought-up all of my points and now only hope that this will be at least considered to be added to the '/warp' list as a game.

    Wouldn't land claims mess it all up?

    Sort of yes, sort of no; you shall need trust to break the blocks (snow), however, if trust is granted then people can break glass in the viewing area and such. I guess it's on trust and whether or not you'd like to be killed every time you go to Ateph for the rest of you life. :p And YES, that was a threat. xD lol

    Will you need to gather more snow every time you play?

    Yes, like Mine-run, you'd have to use an infite snow gen/Ateph to gather snow and place the blocks down. We could have a command block and button to regen the snow (i know the needed command for this) however, I cannot place command blocks and if cyber placed one, someone would change it to /give (Player name) 64 (Diamonds/Emeralds/Beacons/Pearls/Whatever). To put it short: Command blocks are un-likely to be used and so we'd just go outside and start shoveling snow....

    Thanks for your time and I hope you have enjoyed this thread! Bye!

    P.S

    Screen-shots of the arena shall soon be added to the thread. :D

    Spleef has been under consideration (as well as a couple other mini-games). Other things have taken my attention, you are welcome to build your own, however since it is a private arena it would not get a warp.

    Thank you! However, i am wondering; if i built one but, say, for you, would it get a warp? So for example a game of spleef would only commence when you flickt he level to let us drop down to the arena?
    If not, then thanks anyways!

    And if that wasn't clear; only you can begin a game and it shall not be private. :)

    If you build one and I approved the design I might be able to copy it to the area where we have our other mini-games. I would need to look into spleef arenas since I have not played it.

    Sounds like a plan :)
    Thank you for considering this and i hope you will approve of my arena :)
    I have already built it in creative and have made it so that if somebody gets 'out' by being Spleefed, then they cannot cheat by jumping back up and they cannot re-join by warping back; you flick a lever to open a small hatch, however, as soon as the lever is turned off, the hatch closes, thus making it impossible for anyone to re-join the game.

    Notes to what i need to edit about the arena:

    The warp is to the north of the arena and has a path to the arena, with a lever which opens and closes the entrance.
    Replace the lava with glow-stone/sea lanterns and place signs which say that you got spleefed and to leave, do /spawn.
    Signs which say you must go in the arena with only a shovel of any type and food.
    Ender Chests
    Lower the 'you got spleefed!' area so people cannot spleef from below.
    Make the lower section out of obsidian so people are not tempted to 'grief'.

    Edit: I have completed all of these tasks and am in the process of now re-building the arena from single-player onto MT Creative.

    You should make it Water at the bottom instead of blocks, less chance of getting sued. :p

    I'm saying that you should make it so that you lose, not die, and there should be a ladder or stairs leading to a glass spectator viewing area, But that is just my opinion.

    I have not made a spectator area, however, you don't die. As you suggested, i have already implemented the idea that when you fall down, you cannot spleef from below (you are too low) and there are signs saying that you got spleefed and to leave, do /spawn :)
    Thanks for the idea though
