Due to rising COVID-19 Activity in Clark County, we have cancelled our in-person event Spudder Olympics and are providing virtual content to get you to Move, Play, and Eat!
MOVE: Minute to Win It – Exercise Edition
If you love a good Minute to Win It competition, fitness challenges and watching people squirm, then this exercise edition of the games is for you!
- Timer (your phone works!)
- Willing Participants
- Space to Spread Out
- Yoga Mat (optional)
A note about scoring: You do not have to keep score, but awarding points and having an ultimate winner may help raise the stakes and the fun. You can make up your own scoring, or follow this method:
- 1 point to all who participated
- 3 points to those who successfully complete a task
- Add up points for tasks that fall into the “how many can you do in one minute” category. For example, 20 push ups in a minute = 20 points.
How to Play:
Minute to Win It is simple: complete the task in one minute! Below are 16 tasks you can use for this activity.
- Side Plank Left

PLAY: Reverse Charades
- Scraps of paper with clues on them (check out our printable suggestion list here!)
- A bowl, hat, or other receptacle to draw the paper clues from
- A 1 minute timer – use one from another game or use your phone!
Divide into teams of three or more. If you have less than 6 people, consider playing a variation to see who can guess the most clues.
Decide on a number of rounds or a point target to win. One word guessed correctly = 1 point.
How to Play:
Each team has one minute to guess as many words as possible. If the acting team doesn’t like a word, they can pass – but only one pass per round.
Each team selects a guesser (everyone gets a turn guessing) and the rest of the team acts out the words. The other team holds the word clues for only the actors to see and starts the timer.
Shhh! Not a peep among the team members acting. You lose a point if you speak or “mouth” any words to each other or the guesser. The use of objects (or even people) in the room is definitely permitted.
EAT: Spud Night Recipes
We can’t think of a better way for Ridgefield-ites to celebrate the big game than with a good ol’ fashioned Spud Night full of fun, delicious, potato recipes. Check out some potato-based recipes we have gathered below.
