PREP TIME– None
ITEMS NEEDED– Goggles, Slim Jims
GAME TIME– 3 Minutes
PARTICIPANTS– 4 or 8 participants (it works as a tournament style- 8 to 4 to 2 to 1)
Once you have selected your warriors, have them put on their goggles (you can get these at the Dollar Store)- they are going to war after all! You will then need to hand them an opened Slim Jim so that they are ready for their battle.
This Slim Jim Battle will be done like fencing. Remind them that their goal is NOT to leave a mark on the other person! Whoever makes contact first, wins. Set a 60-second time limit and boundaries so that you have a winner for each pairing. After the first round is played, keeping pairing groups down until you have a championship round and winner.
1. If you really want to go crazy, let your entire group play the game, just know that chaos is likely to ensue!
2. Make the boundaries smaller if a pairing has not scored a point after 60-seconds. The goal is to get them close enough that eventually one person will have to win.
3. I recommend playing first person to 2 or 3, but feel free to make a one and done scenario if you’re crunched for time.
4. Award a box of Slim Jims (you can buy them at Sam’s Club or Costco) to the winner.

I love this game because it’s extremely unique, creative, fun and simple (a theme that’s been running through our list). Keep in mind that this game is also much more difficult than it may sound.
Number 7 on our Top 20 Minute To Win It Countdown is Bobblehead. This is an awesome game to watch, especially if you pick the right people! It’s incredibly simple to play and understand, which makes it even better. The only difficulty you may have is getting a pedometer, but that can be done easily by posting the request on Facebook if you don’t have one.
Ranking #8 on our Top 20 Minute To Win It game list is Chocolate Unicorn. First off, it has one of the greatest names of any of the games, and secondly, it’s an exciting watch. Believe it or not, this game is fairly difficult and take a good amount of patience, balance and skill. Make sure you choose participants who encompass some of those things if you want them to win.
This simple and fun game is intense and easy to follow for anyone watching. We’ve played it on different occasions and it’s always a blast!
