Ever since I saw the commercials for the new show Minute To Win It on NBC, I knew it would be great for YL ideas. My friend Dan made a great discovery… Over 70 clips are available on Hulu.com that explain the games. Only problem… I don’t have time to review 70 clips. So I thought I’d embed them a few at a time and let you all make comments to help morph these into club games.
So have at it… watch the clips and try to come up with a detailed game that could work in club, complete with supplies needed, how many people are needed, how to explain, how to win, etc.
1. Whack Job
2. Face The Cookie
3. Bobble Head
4. Egg Roll
6. Don’t Blow the Joker
7. Separation Anxiety
8. This Blows
9. The Nutstacker
10. Ping Tac Toe

We used a twist of a bunch of games from this show for our club last week. We used redneck-dance coach-characters who wanted to have a “bathroom tissue triathlon.”
explain the sequence of the game and have club kids chosen (we had 3) strap on the belted tissue box before it all starts.
game 1 — have club kids pull the tissues out of a box with only one hand // we set a table up
game 2 — have a leader be prepared to put a ping pong ball in the empty tissue box attached to a belt on the club kids // the box should be low on the butts of the kiddos // we cut slits in sides and slid the belt through
game 3 — use leaders to hold roles of bath tissue paper // have students turn in circles to wrap themselves in the toilet paper // the point is to wrap themselves // if the paper breaks then its game over for them
My name is Paul and I’m a volunteer leader at Penn Trafford High School near Pittsburgh PA. We used the bobblehead last week and tissue race the week before and they both went really well! I think this upcoming week we are going to have the Minutes game be face the cookie, and I think If we dip the cookie in chocolate syrup before the game starts it might be even better. I think this would make for such great club pictures too!
Emma and Paul, great ideas! I think I will try these out next week in our club!
Emma I like how you tied a couple games together and also sold them with characters, that really adds a lot.
Paul I love the chocolate idea, definitely a YL twist. Hopefully no chocolate in the eyes!
PHSYL, I hope they go well and get some big laughs! What a great weekend to think about our risen savior, ministry and how God allows us to be a part! Have a great semester, PHSYL and Emma. TTYL
I’ve noticed that a lot of these games need a twist added to them. They are fun on TV but it seems like the potential at a $1,000,000 and the intensity at which they play these games because of this is where most of the fun comes from. That’s why I love the character and chocolate syrup idea. It adds some energy to something very simple. I guess the question I want to ask every time is, “What is something extraordinary that I can add to this game?”
So we were thinking of doing a minute to win it themed club my question is
when you guys did it did you have the characters just for the ” upfront games” or for the group mixer?
Just trying to think how we can do a version of this w/ multiple games for the mixer since they go so quickly but also sell one w/ our run on characters
