Bridges is a minigame.
Each game of Bridges can accommodate up to 40 players (with a minimum of 20 players for the game to start), and there are four teams, so each team can have a maximum of 10 players. The teams are Red, Yellow, Green, and Blue. Being on a different team sometimes changes gameplay, though by not much. For example, playing the map Skylands will spawn you in a different biome-themed island depending on the team you choose (see below).
When the game starts, players will have 10 minutes to gather all of the resources needed for survival. That includes food, armor, and weapons. As bone meal does not work in bridges due to a glitch, the main source of food in most maps will be apples from appler kits. This means that it is essential that people, especially appler kits, share their resources with teammates.
Once the 10 minutes have elapsed, the chat will say "WARNING: THE BRIDGES ARE SPAWNING!" Some form of a bridge will be created, allowing passage to other's islands. This also means that players are free to kill each other. Teamwork is crucial here.
Some form of a tower on a central island sits in the center of the four islands. When the bridges are activated, players will be able to access that island, along with the four other islands. It is well worth taking this island, or at least looting it, as the chests inside provide players with useful loot, including mushroom stew, bows and arrows, and iron to diamond weapons and armor. This island is a good tactical point; if someone with the Bomber kit destroys the bridges leading to the island, Marksmen can safely take out enemies from a distance.
After the 10 minutes, the time limit for the round is 1.4 hours, though there is a bug where the game is ended as a draw when it hits the 30 minute mark. The last team standing wins.
Some maps use the void as the death point, while others use water. Death from the void is next to impossible to escape from, however, with water you can escape as it only deals continuous damage to you per second opposed to killing you instantly.
