Minute to Win It Games for Groups
Dizzy Mummy: The player completing the challenge will need a little assistance from another player. The assistant will hold a roll of toilet tissue and the player will take the end in one hand. When the clock starts, the player will spin in circles, attempting to cover himself or herself completely with the tissue.
Cookie Face: This is a great game to kick off the party because all of the players can compete at the same time (or you can break it down into several rounds of gameplay). Each player places a cookie on their forehead, and the goal is to get the cookie into your mouth using only your facial muscles in under 1 minute. No hands! This is tougher than it looks!
Stack It Up: Players must move 25 pennies into a single stack in under a minute using only one hand (number of pennies can be increased for older children and adults as desired).
Suck It Up: Players place a straw in their mouth and use suction to transfer a pile of 25 M&M’s from one plate to another in under one minute. Only one hand may be used to hold the straw.
Pong Tac Toe: Pong Tac Toe was one of our guests’ most favorite games – some of the adults even asked if they could do play it twice! We used three trays from the game Bounce-Off Party, and assigned one to each of the three players. Each player had one minute to bounce ping pong balls down the length of the table and into their tray – 3 in a row (in any direction) wins! We recommend assigning one color of ping pong balls to each player to keep things easy-to-see.

Oven Mit & Hersey Kisses: Okay this is such a funny Minute to Win It Game for groups! Check out this hilarious video of people competing to unwrap the kisses!
Stack Attack: Players must stack up a pile of cups and then place them back into a single stack in under a minute. The original Minute to Win It version of this game calls for 36 cups to be stacked! Two players competing in each round works well and allows enough space so that any falling cups won’t accidentally knock over your competitor’s stack, too!
Scoop It Up: Using nothing but a spoon in your mouth, transfer six ping pong balls from one bowl to another) in less than one minute. No hands! Hands are only allowed if you drop the ping pong ball, and then they can be used to place the ball back into the original bowl for another transfer attempt.
Nut Stacker: Thread five hex nuts onto a wooden skewer. Using only one hand on the skewer, stack up all of the nuts in under one minute.
Games for Groups
Moving On Up: Each player starts with a stack of 40 red cups with one blue cup at the top of the stack. Start by moving the top blue cup to the bottom of the stack, and continue moving cups from the top to the bottom until the blue cup is back at the bottom of the stack again.
Junk in the Trunk: This game was another crowd favorite! To prepare for this game, empty a tissue box, and use an Xacto knife to make two slits into the bottom of the box. Thread an adjustable belt or wide ribbon through the two slits to create a tissue-box-on-a-belt. Removing the thin plastic barrier from the tissue box opening will make game play easier (for younger children) or keep it intact for more challenging play.
Defy Gravity: Using only one hand, players must keep two balloons from touching the ground for one minute. For a more challenging game, increase the amount to three balloons per player! Or use different colored balloons for each player to make it easy to differentiate! No holding the balloons!
Needle in a Corn Stack: Then the challenge was to find the three kernels in one minute! You can easily make this game more difficult for older kids by using a larger bowl and more corn.
