Minute to Win It

For those of you who have not heard of the game show Minute to Win it, I highly recommend it.
The concept-teams of 2 players complete challenges using everyday household items. The challenges must be completed in under one minute-thus the title of the show. As the difficult of the challenges increase, they win increasing amounts of cash.

Last Friday night, we got together with friends and played it ourselves. We had a blast. I love this idea for parties and get together's because a) use household items you already have or can get easily and cheaply and b) the challenges last only a minute so you never get bored!

NBC has all the instructions for free on their website-even better. Here is the link.

Our favourites of the night:

1. Bromski-basically ski ball, created with 3 sizes of garbage bins, a broom stick and tennis balls. We played it in a long hallway. The idea is to get one tennis ball in each of the bins in one minute.

2. Ping Tac Toe-using nine plastic cups, create a tic tac toe grid. Bounce ping pong balls into the cups, to create a three in a row pattern. You need two colours of balls for this.

We played many more, with varying degrees of success.

It seems the key supplies are ping pong balls, marbles, tennis balls and plastic cups as well as other things commonly found around the house such as string, paper clips, hangers etc.

We had a blast with these games, it would be great for teen parties, family reunions and other group gatherings.

Try it, you won't be disappointed.

Check out the game show on NBC on Wednesday nights at 8 pm.
