Minute-to-Win-it Party Night

This evening is sure to be full of fun, laughter, and adrenaline because all the games at this party take only one minute to win! Times flies fast and residents are sure to have a ton of fun.

All you need is a stop watch, ample space to host the party games, and some enthusiastic participants.

To play these games, you can make teams or do one-on-one competitions between residents. Here is a wonderful resource where you can get 10 games, along with their instructions, score cards, and other printable resources, all for about $15.

If you would like to make and prepare your own games, we’ve listed a few games below that you can try as-is, or use for inspiration.

Stack Attack

Things you’ll need:

·         Paper Cups

·         Tables

Ask each participant to stack thirty six paper (or plastic) cups into a pyramid and then stack them back into a single row. The team or participant who is able to do this in one minute (or less) first wins the game!

For a clearer idea about how this game is played, watch the video below:

Yank it Out

This game also uses cups. Five cups are stacked one on top of the other – top to top and bottom to bottom - with a square piece of paper between each cup. The participants have to yank out the paper without letting the cups fall.

***TIP*** The difficulty level of this game is quite high. Be sure to appreciate the participants who are able to win the game.

Pretzel Kabob Challenge

In this game, the participants have to quickly thread as many pretzels as possible onto a chopstick using only their mouth. This is a challenge for participants but even more entertaining to the audience!

Face the Oreo

With this game, the goal is to get an Oreo from their head to their mouth in less than a minute. Give each participant an Oreo to place on their forehead.

To win this game, the participants need to wiggle their face to get the Oreo in their mouth without touching it with their hands or dropping it on the floor.

If it does fall, participants can grab another Oreo and start again, so long as the minute is not up!

To make the event more cutthroat, have family members or couples compete against each other. You can also make teams of kids vs. adults or men vs. women.


However, to make the teams more evenly matched, it’s also a good idea to pair teams of senior citizens and children against their own age group so they can better enjoy the event.
