The Fair is a large community gaming park on the BadWolfMC Alpha server where any member can build attractions and games for all to enjoy. It can be accessed by /warp fair or /fair.
The Fair opened with the server itself on October 1, 2016. Original attractions included BoomTown, SlimeSpleef, and King of the Ladder. Other features have been built up, including several colorful carnival tents that were the product of a community-led build contest sponsored by player Willaroze.
BoomTown is a 2-4 person PVP minigame in which players attempt to strategically place TNT on the redstone-activated floor of a flooded maze-like arena close enough to the other players to kill them. TNT, food, and other items can be acquired from 8 rotating chests located in the corners and at 4 other points near the spawns. The game is inspired by TangoTek's "BoomBox". The mechanics are entirely vanilla but the running of the game is handled by our PVP plugin.
Bumper Boats is a 6 player bumper arena built by xSOIREEx. For the fun of it.
The Casino is an upcoming attraction built by FurioCraft entirely in survival mode using vanilla mechanics. It includes slot machines, blackjack, poker, roulette, and jackpots.
Dust Devil is a mini Minecraft roller coaster built by xSOIREEx featuring a 43-block namesake dust devil spiral that plunges into a flooded cave beneath the desert to emerge again for a romp across the dunes.
Guess Who is a minigame built by FalseSymmetry in HermitCraft season 6 and rescued from the world download. Based upon the classic board game and played in the same manner.
The Jousting Lists were built by Willaroze and are located next to the Merry-Go-Round. Here players can ride hard and fast at each other with pointy objects. Someone will probably lose an eye.
King of the Ladder
Our over-the-top King of the Ladder will test your parkour skills while being shot from below from nefarious thugs seeking to dethrone you. Reach one of the "flags" at the top to claim points towards your victory!
Built by Willaroze, this quad merry-go-round features everyone's favorite animals saddled up and forever going in circles for your amusement. Hop on and enjoy the ride!
The Pig Races
The Pig Races are another Willaroze brainchild that takes you through several mini-biomes complete with swampy hazards and slippery ice spikes. Can you guide your pig safely across the finish line to victory?!
Not to be confused with RBG, RGB is a minigame built by Zedaph in HermitCraft season 6 and rescued from the world download.
SpeedyPines is a large boat race track made of ice built by RenDog in HermitCraft season 6 and rescued from the world download.
TFIL! (The Floor is Lava)
TFIL! is a minigame built by Xisumavoid in HermitCraft season 6 and rescued from the world download. Race across the shifting floor to safety and don't dawdle because the floor is lava! The game is now controlled by, of all things, our parkour plugin.
Get lost in Tim's Bush, a fun well-trimmed hedge maze built by xSOIREEx. And still no trees in sight. Poor Tim.
The Race Track
The Race Track was a multipurpose racing complex adjacent to The Fair complete with starting gate, stables, and clubhouse. Built by xSOIREEx, 1xXHeartlessXx1, and probably others, idk. The track fell into disuse and disrepair after the update to 1.13 and was eventually replaced by Speedy Pines.
SlimeSpleef was a 2-4 player spleef extravaganza with a bouncy twist. Be the last to touch the ground and claim the prize! SlimeSpleef died with the plugin that controlled it in the update to 1.13 and was eventually replaced by Guess Who.
Splash Down was a water/ice slide located next to BoomTown. Bring your own boat or rent one for $1! It was ultimately removed to make way for RGB, Speedy Pines, and TFIL.
