How to Play These Christmas Games

All of these games are Minute to Win It style games and depending on the number of people playing, there are different ways you can play them. Don’t know what what minute to win it games are? Start with my minute to win it games page that’s full of instructions, scoring ideas, and more!

Style #1: Minute to Win It for Individuals – Man vs. Clock

In this version, one player will be trying to beat the clock for each game. So for instance, they will have to try and complete the game within a minute (hence the minute to win it name). If they do, they win a prize. If not, let someone else have a shot. If you go with this style, I recommend choosing a different person for each game.

As an alternate version to this, you could also let the same person continue playing games until they can’t finish one in a minute. Or you could have everyone playing individually all at the same time (similar to version 3 below but in individuals rather than teams) and see who all can finish the challenge in a minute.

Style #2: Minute to Win It for Groups

In this style, you’ll pick two players for each game who will going head to head against each other playing a game rather than trying to beat the clock. So you’ll give each person the game supplies and see who can finish first. The first person to finish wins the prize. Again, rotate through pairs for each game, repeating players as necessary but this works well when you have smaller groups so everyone can participate in a variety of games.

Style #3: Minute to Win It for Teams

In this style, you’ll split your group into two (or 3 or 10 depending on the number of guests) teams. For each game, teams must choose one player to compete head to head in the game with the other teams. So for instance, one person from each team will be given the supplies and game instructions. When you say go, everyone competes to be the first to complete the game. First team to finish gets 5 points, second team gets 3, third team gets 1, and everyone else gets none. This works best if you have quite a few people and is a good way to get everyone involved cheering for their team.

Note: If any of these challenges seem to easy or too hard for the group you’re playing with, feel free to adjust slightly.

Have teams stand at one end of the room and put a bucket per team at the other end of the room.

When you say go, a team member must run to the bucket and find something that fits ones of the 12 days of Christmas and bring it back to their team. Players rotate like a relay, going to the bucket until they find something for each of the 12 days.
