Teams compete in a series of challenging and fun team building games based on the Minute To Win It TV show. The games are highly competitive and silly using only simple materials that can be found in anyone’s home, or directly using features of the online conferencing software. In many of the games, teams will nominate a person to compete with nominees from other teams, while some of the games will require total team participation to win the challenge. Teams aim to collect as many points as possible. The length and selection of games for Minute-to-Win-it is flexible, so it is a good choice for a warmup activity or get-to-know-you session.
