Valentine’s Day Minute to Win It Games
All of these games are Minute to Win It style games and depending on the number of people playing, there are different ways you can play them. Don’t know what what minute to win it games are? Start with my minute to win it games page that’s full of instructions, scoring ideas, and more!
Style #1: Minute to Win It for Individuals – 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 complete the game within a minute (hence the minute to win it name). If they do, they win a prize.
If not, let someone else have a shot. If you go with this style, I recommend choosing a different person for each game.
As an alternate version to this, you could also let the same person continue playing games until they can’t finish one in a minute. Or you could have everyone playing individually all at the same time (similar to version 3 below but in individuals rather than teams) and see who all can finish the challenge in a minute.
Style #2: Minute to Win It for Groups
In this style, you’ll pick two players for each game who will going head to head against each other playing a game rather than trying to beat the clock. So you’ll give each person the game supplies and see who can finish first. The first person to finish wins the prize.
Style #3: Minute to Win It for Teams
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. So for instance, one person from each team will be given the supplies and game instructions. When you say go, everyone competes to be the first to complete the game.
First team to finish gets 5 points, second team gets 3, third team gets 1, and everyone else gets none. This works best if you have quite a few people and is a good way to get everyone involved cheering for their team.
Note: If any of these challenges seem to easy or too hard for the group you’re playing with, feel free to adjust slightly. For instance, if you have an extremely coordinated group for #1, make them catch 10 or more.

Hilarious Valentine Party Games
Heart to Heart
This game is played in pairs. Teams must race to be the first pair to successfully move a balloon from one side of the room to the other using any part of their body other than their hands.
Start by having one person bounce the balloon off of their “heart” then keep moving.
If the balloon hits the ground or someone touches it with their hands, they have to go back to the starting line. Even better if you use heart shaped balloons!
Box of Chocolates
Blindfold a player and give them a box of name brand chocolates (Snickers, Kit Kat, Reese’s, etc.).
Player has to race to put all of the chocolates in the box in alphabetical order. Player can do whatever they need (open, taste, smell, etc.) to determine what the chocolates are other than ask a friend.
First player to get chocolates in alphabetical order wins.
Player has to use the Nerf gun to play cupid and knock all of the cups off of the table (not just down, actually off).
If they run out of bullets, they have to run across the room to refill.
Tape small hearts to a table or a large piece of poster board prior to the game then put a bucket of rubber duckies at the end of the table.
Players have to race to slide Valentine’s Day rubber duckies from the end of the table (or poster board) to try to get them to land on the taped on hearts. As long as the rubber ducky is touching the heart, it counts.
Players must either cover all of the hearts on the table (do 3-5) or get the most in a minute out of the group to win.
Ring Around the Roses
Before the game, set up a vase with chocolate roses inside then place a piece of tape a few feet from the roses.
Spin players in five circles then give them three rings to toss.
Players must toss rings and get three onto chocolate roses to win the game. If they miss their three rings, spin them again prior to tossing their rings again.
Players have to race to be the first to complete this free printable love song game before the other teams or to complete as much as possible of it in a minute’s time.
Give each player a cup filled with the same number of conversation hearts.
Players have to dump out their conversation hearts and race to place the conversation hearts either in alphabetical order (more difficult) or to sort them by color (easier – for kids).
Love Goes Round
This game is played in pairs. Have one player stand on one side of a table and have the other player stand on the other side of the table.
Players must take turns rolling (not sliding) Oreo cookies across the table to their partner where their partner, without having their chin on the table, has to catch the Oreo in their mouth.
Continue rolling cookies back and forth across the table until both players have caught a cookie in their mouth. This is a fun alternative to the popular face the cookie game.
