Superhero Minute to Win It Games for Kids
These superhero minute to win it games can be either played individually, head to head, or in teams. Each one is inspired by a popular superhero and even though I’m a little bias toward The Avengers, I included Justice League superheroes, X-Men, and more since I’ve already shared Avengers party games.
And I’ve designed the games so that they are all family-friendly, so you can use these for kids, adults, teens, or even grandparents. Minute to Win It games are perfect for that – just use the game and change the difficulty for the player age.
Style #1: Man vs. Clock – In this version, one player will be trying to beat the clock for each game. So for instance, they will have to try and finish the task within a minute.. If they do, they win a prize. If not, let someone else have a shot. Choose a different person per game.
Style #2: Head to Head – In this style, you’ll pick two players for each game who will going head to head against each other instead of against the clock. See who can finish the task first. The first person to finish wins the prize. Again, rotate through pairs for each game.
Style #3: Team Competition – In this style, you’ll split your group into two (or 3 or 10 depending on the number of guests) teams. For each game, teams must choose one player to compete head to head in the game with the other teams at the same time. The first team to finish will receive 10 points, the second team will receive 5, etc. This works best if you have quite a few people and is a good way to get everyone involved cheering for their team.
