Teams compete in a series of challenging and fun team building games based on the minute to win it TV show theme. The games are designed to be highly competitive and as silly as possible using only simple materials that can be found in anyone’s home office or pantry, 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 with the highest score awarded to the best team. After the last game the scores are added up by the lead facilitator during the event de-brief and the winning team is announced. The length and selection of games for Minute-to-Win-it is quite flexible, so it is a good choice for a kickoff activity or get-to-know-you session.

The type of games are selected depending on whether participants can only use daily household materials everyone always has in their home or are able to purchase additional materials prior to the event. Minute to win it games are conducted in a team versus team format in which participants of each team go through the various games which are usually competitive sometimes cooperative, some physical others more mentally challenging but each activity requires full participation of everyone in the team.
