2. Defying Gravity

Gravity is a force of nature and defying it would be a great challenge, especially if you have to focus on not just one, not just two but three objects! This challenging game will play with gravity and how to defy it in a minute straight.

All you need for this game are three regular-sized balloons for each player. When the timer starts, each player should be able to keep the three balloons up in the air without holding them for longer than a second, they can just juggle them in the air or blow them up or let the balloons bounce on their bodies. Fight against gravity’s pull on the balloons and keep them up for a minute!

3. Bottle to Bottle

This classic game is a lot like playing with an hourglass but this time, it won’t be smooth sand that you’ll be trying to transfer from one side to the other. This time, you’ll need either gummy bears or jelly beans placed inside a bottle then tape it mouth-to-mouth with another bottle.

Every player should have his or her own bottle taped mouth-to-mouth with another bottle and with goodies inside. In under a minute, the players should try their best to transfer the contents of the first bottle to the second bottle. Just like most games, the more players the merrier!

4. Shamrock Shake

Any game that involves shaking your bum is quite adorable and hilarious to see and play. This is an example of those games. It’s both simple and easy to prepare and all you need is an empty box of Kleenex, some ping pong or tennis balls, a pair of pantyhose, and some tape. Prepare one set of these materials for each player.

The ping pong balls should be placed inside the empty Kleenex boxes. The boxes should be taped to the panty hose and taped around the player’s waist. The goal is for the player to shake, shake, shake until all the balls fall out.

5. Wrap it Up

As the name of the game suggests, this simple and no-nonsense game is all about wrapping things up. Instead of an object or a thing, the players should be paired up and given a roll of toilet paper. You might think that’s all to it but hold your horses!

The goal of the game is for each team to entirely wrap one of the members in toilet paper in just one minute. Don’t stop until your partner becomes a mummy and/or you use up all your toilet paper.

6. Traffic Yam

This is sort of a weird racing game from a starting point to the finish line. As suggested by its name, it involves some kind of traffic and some kind of yam, instead of jam.

All you need for this racing game is lots of sweet potatoes for each player. Make sure that the sweet potato’s skin is already removed. Unlike any normal race, the players should be able to slide the sweet potatoes from one point to another by pushing them with their noses.

You might think that this is easy but try doing it for a full minute and with as many potatoes as you can then you might think otherwise!

7. Iron Man

If you’re used to using chopsticks then you’re 50% ready for this game. The Iron Man game is all about mastering your chopsticks skills and balance all in one minute! All you need for this game is a pair of chopsticks for each player and lots of iron nuts!

The goal of the game is for each player to use the chopsticks to pick the nuts and pile them on top of each other to make a tower of iron nuts. The player with the highest tower in one-minute wins!

This make-believe adventure game might sound lame but with the right vibe and people, it is actually a whole lot of fun! You can match the theme of your obstacle course according to the theme of your party.

All you need to do is prepare an obstacle course of different items from one end of the room to the next. The setup must be in a way that the players can navigate around the course while they’re on a towel or a bath mat. The player who can finish the course in under a minute or fewer wins.
