Great for indoors or for a company picnic and better than your typical Team Olympics. This fun, engaging set of team challenges pits teams against the clock– not each other. Yes, there are “winners” in the end, but every competition allows every team to win if they are working well with their team members.
These challenges are timed from 2 to 5 minutes, and teams are given time to strategize and practice before starting. Challenges are a mix of very active and more cerebral activities, so there is really something for everyone. There is a long list of challenges to select from, depending upon space available and whether indoors or out.
We can do the entire event indoors at tables or utilize other challenges that are more physical and require a grass field. Most groups enjoy doing a variety – some at their team tables and some out on the field. Call or email us to get examples of the challenges in this fun, unique series!

Minutes-to-Win-It challenges are bite-sized games, usually lasting, as the name suggests, a few minutes. Using simple items and a dash of creativity, teams compete in entertaining though challenging tasks like Trivia Bingo, Speed Pictionary, building towers out of spaghetti, or “Naming that Tune.”
But beyond the giggles, these quick bursts of activity offer a surprising array of benefits:
- Laughter is the best medicine: A good dose of shared fun is a potent stress reliever. It fosters a more positive and relaxed work environment, boosting morale and reducing tension.
- Camaraderie blossoms: Working together towards a common goal, even a simple one, breaks down barriers and fosters connections between team members. It allows people to see each other in a new light, revealing hidden talents and strengthening bonds.
- Communication gets a boost: Successfully navigating these challenges requires effective communication. Teams learn to strategize, delegate tasks, and provide clear instructions, all valuable skills that translate seamlessly back to the office.
- Problem-solving gets playful: Each challenge presents a mini-contest. Thinking outside the box, experimenting, and adapting on the fly become essential for victory. These skills sharpen critical thinking and problem-solving abilities, benefiting real-world projects.
- Creativity takes flight: The limitations of the games spark resourcefulness and ingenuity. Teams learn to improvise with available materials, finding unconventional solutions that can be applied to everyday work challenges.
