For the type of Roblox game, see Minigames (Places).

Minigames were the original games of Roblox before the inclusion of player-generated games.

In 2005, when ROBLOX was in beta, the concept of places was unheard of. Players would instead play minigames and earn ROBLOX Points until Robux began circulation in 2007.

List of original minigames

Bridge it

Bridge It!: This game might have been to build a bridge to get across to another point.

Bridge it 2

Bridge It! #2: It is mostly similar to Bridge It!, except it is much longer and the objective is to go diagonally.

Contain it

Contain It!: In this, balls would drop and would have to be caught by a (moving?) baseplate.

Beat the lions

Beat the lions: In this, the player might have had to run from lions. It was very popular, staying on Top Games for a while.

Dangerous driver

Dangerous Driver: This might have been an attempt at a driving game.

Crash driver
Crash Driver: In this, the objective was to crash into objects.
Block it

Block It!: In this, balls had to be blocked from reaching a certain point.

Level #2 - Block It!: This has not been found but exists. More balls were possibly added.
Block it 3
Level #3 - Block It!: In this, more balls were added.
Remove it
REMOVE IT: In this, obstacles had to be removed for the ball to travel through.
Racegame
Race! #2: This might have been a racing game where a player had to beat an opponent.
Use strategy to win
Use strategy to win: This might have been an attempt at a strategy game.
Ground env
Ground Environment: It allowed a player to build anything they wanted. It is the equivalent of the Baseplate template in Roblox Studio.
Fend off the bots: This might have been a Sci-Fi game. It also received a Spawn mode later on.

UnknownPlace

Balance #1: In this, players had to balance parts on a scale to try and keep them as balanced as possible. More ROBLOX Points were rewarded for the fewer parts used. This is one of the few places from Summer 2005 to have a description.
Puzzle2005
Steer The Spheres
: In it, a ball had to be controlled into a red goal. It had a description, like Balance #1 when they were top games (Note: Steer the Spheres was mentioned in the News box on July 9, 2005. It was the "hardest contest yet" and described itself as "It's like mini-golf where you can change the course.")
Steer The Spheres #2: This was an easier version of Steer The Spheres. It has not been found but exists.
Parrot2005
Parrot Cay
: In this, a player had to sail to another island to find treasure.
Castle
King Arthur's Castle
: In this, a player might have had to defend the castle from attackers.
  • Other Minigames that have little-to-no information on are Pioneer Home, backyard adventure, Tank Ram Car, and Bridge It! #4.
  • Some 2004 minigames were City #1, City #2, and don't disturb the dynamite.​​
