Minute to Win It
Minute to Win it games are fast-paced and challenging games. The tasks must be completed in one minute. Some games are team games, and some only require one player. Once the game is set up, the timer should be set to 1 minute and the host yells go! Players have one minute to complete the task. If they mess up, the timer does not stop! They have to start over and try again. Award points for completing the games, and award a bonus point for the team or player that completes it in the least amount of time (this helps with tiebreakers). In the end, tally the points and declare a winner!
Yank it Down!
Plastic cups (at least 3- the more cups the greater the challenge)
Card stock ( one less than the amount of cups)
The players have one minute to stack the cups just right so they center on the paper, open side facing down. Once the cups are stacked, they have to pull the card stock out from between the cups, so the cups collapse onto each other and form one stack. If the cups do not fall in a stack, the player must begin again if time is left.
Pencils (at least 2- the more pencils the greater the challenge)
Players hold their hand out with palm facing the ground. Place the pencils on top of the hand and set the timer for one minute. Players have to toss the pencils in the air, and use the same hand they are on to catch them mid-air before the fall to the ground!
Two ping pong balls
Fill cups about halfway with water and set in the middle of the table. Have a player stand on each end of the table with a ping pong ball. The players have one minute to bounce the ping pong ball on the table so it lands in the cup.
Oreos (one per player)
Each player places an Oreo on their forehead and has one minute to move the Oreo to their mouth without using their hand.
One empty box of cereal
Before the game, cut up a box of cereal into small pieces. Players have one minute to reassemble the box.
M&Ms (10 per player)
Plates (2 per player)
Each team gets two plates with 10 M&Ms on one plate, while the other is empty. Players have one minute to use a straw to suck up the candy and transfer it to the other plate.
Junk in the Trunk!
Tissue box (one per player)
Ten ping pong balls
Thin belt or long ribbon
Before the game, take a tissue box and cut a slit on each side to slide your belt or ribbon through to tie the box around a player's waist. Then, add 10 ping pong balls inside the tissue box. When the timer starts, players shake and jump around to try and get the highest number of ping pong balls out of their box.
