What is it?

Quicksand is a unique plugin based off of the popular minigame TNTRUN.
The goal of the game is to run across a layer of sand and gravel
without falling through the holes that appear. When players move, the
blocks under them disappear - creating hazards in the arena floor. If a
player falls through a hole, they move on to the next layer. The game
continues until they 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!

You may have seen people like SkyDoesMinecraft play TNTRUN, and now YOU can join in on the fun! With Quicksand, you and the players on your server can all enjoy the amazing and addicting game that IS TNTRUN! Quicksand has loads of bonus-features (or add-ins) which make the game even more unique and exciting! Plus, Quicksand updates often to provide you with a range of bug fixes, new features, cool improvements, and more! Install Quicksand today!

Join Signs

If you don't want your players using /qs join to join the game, you can use Join Signs. To make one, simply place a sign and make the first line say [Quicksand].
Second line should be the name of the arena you want players to join.
Next, simply leave all other lines blank. You'll need permission quicksand.sign to make a Join Sign though. Your players don't need anything to use them.

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. 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 and after the game, use command /qs setlobby.
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!

Could you add stats, and rewards for each game, so you get money (maybe use an economy plugin?) and you can spend it at shops for like, special abilities?
