60-Second Party Games

Lifestyle expert Joanne Alderson loves to throw parties and to boost the mood, she turns to these games inspired by Minute to Win It. They can all be played with items from your home. For best results, you may want to wait till everyone's had a couple cocktails!

Don't Tip The Joker

You need:
  • 2 glass bottles
  • 2 decks of cards

Stack a deck of cards face down, but leave the joker face up on the bottom of the pile. Centre this stack of cards on the mouth of a glass bottle. The player has to blow all the cards off the bottle, trying to keep the joker on top.

Matchmaker

You need:
  • 18 plastic cups
  • 6 red candies, 6 yellow candies, 6 blue candies

Set up: Place one candy under each of 18 plastic cups turned upside down on a table. Place three cups right side up in different locations at the perimeter of the room.

One at a time the player must pick up a plastic cup from the center table, and place the candy from under that cup into one of the three cups placed around the perimeter of the room. The object is to get six of each designated colour into the three cups within one minute.

Remember: No eating of the candies in play!
