If you know someone who loves Legos, they will absolutely love these game ideas! Great Lego game ideas for a Lego party, for a Lego playdate, or just to keep kids who love Legos entertained for a few hours.
I am a game show addict, and one of my favorite game shows to watch is Minute to Win It. If you’ve never seen it, basically people try to complete challenges in under a minute. Some of the challenges are easy and others are more difficult.
For this Lego game post, I created Lego Minute to Win It Party Games, perfect for kids to play at a Lego party. There are all sorts of games but if you want even more, check out these fun math games that incorporate Legos!
How to Play These Lego Games
There are three different ways you can play minute to win it games like these ones. The style you want to play is completely up to you and completely dependent on how many people you have. I’ve played these Lego games all ways and they’re fun every time!
Individual vs. Clock – One player plays each game and tries to finish the Lego game in under one minute. Or if you’re playing with younger kids, you can give them a longer time period. But the main idea is that they’ll play agains the clock and try to beat the timer rather than an actual opponent.
Head to Head – Two or more players will play against each other head to head to be the first to finish the Lego game. First person to complete the game wins.
Teams – If you have a big group, split the group into teams and have one person from each team play each game. So for instance, someone from team A would be stacking bricks, someone from team B would be stacking bricks, etc. The team that finishes first receives five points, next team receives three points, and so on.
Lego Games Banner
I created a Minute to Win It banner using the Lego font. I just cut out the letters and glued them on to red paper to create my banner.
And now for the most important details, the list of challenges that you can use for your party. You can use them all or pick and choose which ones you think work best for you. All of these Lego game ideas would work for kids of all ages or even adults if you have Lego loving adults.
If you have any additional challenge ideas, please leave a comment and I’ll add them to my list! For each of the games below, I’ve listed out the equipment needed for ONE person to complete the challenge. If you have multiple teams playing at once, you’ll need one set for each team.
