Minute to Win It - Teen Edition

Calling all GTMO teens! Are you looking for a quick but fun and challenging game? Look no further than your own home. Your MWR Community Library is virtually hosting a monthly ‘Minute to Win It’ challenge! Minute-to-win-it challenges are fun to try on your own, with one friend, or with a whole group. What’s great about these challenges is that you can compete against each other, or you can compete against yourself to get your best time or highest number. You don't need much in the way of supplies. Just a timer (like the one on a phone), and things you'll find around the house. Supplies are just suggestions. If the supplies call for chop sticks and you don't have any, try knitting needles or uncooked strands of linguini! Ready to begin?

1. Download your game board or stop by your MWR Community Library to get a hardcopy.

2. Complete your monthly challenge.

3. Submit via e-mail, Facebook, or in-person.

November – Lego Stack – They need to come into the library and see how tall of a stack they can make with Lego building blocks in 1 minute. They will measure them and the tallest structure will win.


December – Ornament Roll - How to Play: Give each player an ornament and a gift box and have stand behind a lined taped on the ground with painter’s tape. Tape another line across the room (best done in a large empty room or gym).

To play, players must fan their gift box toward their ornament to get it to roll across the room and over the other line. Players can’t actually touch the ornament with the box, just use it to create wind to “blow” it.
