Easy One Minute Games For Kitty Parties and Families
The one minute games have gained immense traction in the last decade as they offer equal entertainment to the participants and the spectators. It really does not matter whether one of these minute-to-victory game designs accommodate only two players or groups of players because everyone present around the game gets tremendous enjoyment from the games. The unique quality of one minute games is that they can be played by participants of any age group, especially kids. The age-neutrality of these games make them perfect for birthday parties, family gatherings, or even office socials. Here are five hand-picked games that combine fun and entertainment with a little bit of skill:
For this game, the game host can arrange any number of items on a tray to make the items clearly visible to the game participants. The players are provided with paper and pen. The tray is taken to each player by turn and then removed from the game area. Now the participants have to jot down the items they viewed on the tray. After a minute, the person who comes with most items from the tray wins.
Pass the Rubber Band
In this game, only two participants can play at a time. Some rubber bands are placed in a bowl on a table. Then the two participants sitting around the table are provided with one stick each. The participant must hold the stick with his mouth and attempt picking up the rubber bands from the bowl. After one minute, the participants who picks up more rubber bands wins.
This one minute game requires concentration along with skill. Each participant is provided with two bowls. The bowl must be kept at least an arm apart from each other. One bowl is filled with cotton balls while the other is empty. Now some petroleum jelly is applied to each participant’s nose tip. With a sticky nose tip, the participant will pick the cotton balls from the full bowl and put the balls in the empty bow. After a minute, whoever manages to transfer the maximum number of cotton balls from the full to the empty bowl wins.
Coin and clock game
In this game, you’ll need a pen, paper, and coins of many denomination. First draw a clock on the plain piece of paper with the number 1-12 on it. This game participants put different coins on each number of a clock in a way so that the coins add up to that number. After a minute, the player who puts the most amount of coins on the clock in a minute is the winner. (Example: 1 – put one penny: 6 – a nickle and penny or 6 pennies, etc.) This is a game of speed and is truly age-neutral.
Moving on Up
This game ideally suited for kids can provide pure entertainment to adults as well. The game requires 40 plastic cups for each player, 39 of which are blue and one is red. The 40 cups should be stacked up on each other with the red cup placed at the bottom of the stack. When the stop watch starts the game, the players have to use one hand only to remove one cup at a time and re-stack them with the red one at the bottom. The player will be required to alternatively use left and right hands to re-stack the cups without picking up two cups together.
All these games appear simple, but they need mental concentration, agility, and skills on the part of players. As kids are naturally agile, they perform better at some of these one-minute games than adults. Except for “Pass the Rubber Band,” all other games can involve multiple players so long enough materials and table room are available to play the games. Players who enjoy fun-filled skill tests will thoroughly enjoy these five games.
