Survival Games is one of the Minigames of Minecraft Central. It has been around from the start. There are 75 arenas and 27 maps. A maximum of 24 players may play at one arena at the same time, and 24 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 in 16th June 2016. The requirement was changed to 24 with the SG update of 29th May 2017.
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 player left. The chests refill after 15 minutes.
In 29th May 2017 Team Survival Games was added. The players can use /team NAME to find themselves a pair. There are 12 teams. The game works similarly to the Solo Survival Games. In 30th May 2017 lightning effect was added when players die. In 31st May 2017 an explosion sound was added to inform players of a death. The ability to vote for maps was added in 29th June 2017.
