    Chicken Gliding is a fairly simple game. You ride a boat on a chicken and glide off a cliff. 5 rings float past the cliff, each ring smaller than the other. Your goal is to dismount your chicken at the perfect time in order to fall through the smallest possible ring.

    Due to its simplicity, I think Chicken Gliding would make for a fun activity to play while waiting in a game lobby rather than having its own fully fledged game (unless you guys can think of a way to make this a more dynamic game.) Putting this in a lobby alongside the normal parkour would allow players a unique and fairly entertaining thing to do while waiting for a lobby to fill up.

    Thoughts, ideas, suggestions, etc. welcome.

    Nice yolk. Were you too chicken to say the joke without the disclaimer at the end, or were you just trying to avoid getting egg on your face? (Sorry, I suffer from Reflexive Involuntary Pun Syndrome)

    Great idea.
    If it was a minigame, I would think there would be 8 players, but they have infinity bows to try and destroy an opponents boat. Maybe there could be kits or "power ups" like Rocket Booster (fires a firework behind you, and you boost forward 6 blocks), Distractor (have throwable spawn eggs that you can throw at other players), Helpful Kills (could probably have a better name for this, but if you kill someone it gives you 1 throwable spawn egg, and 10 snowballs).
    How to get spendable points (points that you get by winning sg or sw)
    Redstone: 1
    Lapiz: 2
    Iron: 4
    Gold: 7
    Diamond: 10

    Getting into the hoops would give you points and stuff.

    Redstone: 5
    Lapiz: 10
    Iron: 25
    Gold: 50
    Diamond: 100

    It's probably harder to get into the hoops than it looks, so... I think your scoring system is fair, albeit a little on the OP side.

    I said that already, and I think your point system is op in my opinion, because I'm pretty sure that the redstone is 10 blocks wide... Landing in that is probably easy (not saying I know, but probably), and getting 5 points for that is like the ultamite points grinder

    The points in the video are literally just for fun. If this is put in, you either won't get any points (like completing lobby parkour) or you can only do it once per round to deter people from farming it for points.

    We need to have a way to stop the players from meaninglessly spamming the spawn button of the chickens if it is to be used in the lobbies

    Yup. This is a problem I encountered with the test subjects. They'd just sit there and spam the button like mouth-breathing simpletons. Luckily, with the magic of plugins and java coding, you can make it an item in your inventory that you place, and when you place it, it instantly makes you ride the chicken.
