After School Games, Challenges and Competitions Holidays

12 Minute to Win It Games – Halloween Style

Some of the best party games come from the Minute to Win It game show. 

While it’s fun to watch people try to complete challenges in 60 seconds, it’s even better when there is no time limit and teams compete against each other (known as Head-to-Head or Last Person Standing). That’s what I suggest you do for your Halloween party/event.

Here are easy ways to change up classic Minute to Win It games for Halloween. I have included video instructions/demonstrations on the original games.

Movin’ On Up

Instead of using 39 blue (or red) Solo cups and 1 red (or blue) cup, change it to 39 orange cups and 1 purple cup
