Blocks & Hunters

by BlueFeline

The Blocks & Hunters datapack is an adaptation of the mini-game in which one team turns into blocks and hides, while the other team has to find them; this mini-game can be found for example on Mineplex, The Hive or Hypixel !

To join a team, you must walk on one of these structures :

Structures to join a team


The blocks team must hide by transforming in blocks. To transform into a block, you must sneak above a block in the image below :

Lists of blocks

The datapack automatically adapts itself to the version of Minecraft you are using (from 1.13), i.e. it will unlock the blocks of the actual version of the game + the blocks of the previous versions. To find out which version of Minecraft was detected, a message is displayed in the chat with all the updates detected when you do the "/reload" command.

Example of a chat message for 1.15 :

Blocks & Hunters - by BlueFeline

Detected : Minecraft 1.13!

Detected : Minecraft 1.14!

Detected : Minecraft 1.15!

When you are transformed into a block, you can no longer move.


The hunters have to find the hidden blocks. When you join the hunters team, you get an iron sword, iron armor, and a 10 regeneration effect. To hit a hidden player as a block, you must aim above the suspect block, as this is where the player's body actually is (see image below).

How to hit a hidden player

But how to recognize a normal block of a player transformed into a block ? First, players turned into a block have no collision. Second, the players turned into blocks are shaking a little bit of fear! This effect is less visible in 1.16.


First of all, do "/reload" to properly load all the features of the datapack and also check the version of the game detected. Then you have to join a team. Finally you can start a game with the command "/ trigger start ".

You can stop a game at any time with the "/trigger stop" command.

A game lasts 6min divided into two parts :

-The first one which lasts 1min, during which the Blocks team must go to hide, and the Hunters are immobilized and have an effect of blindness.

-The second begins after the first minute and lasts 5 minutes (the rest of the game). The Hunters are released and must find the other players.
