Catch Phrase is a fun and quick game that everyone can enjoy. Split up into two teams and take turns describing the word that comes onto the screen of the catchphrase disk. Pass the game on, but don’t get caught holding it when the timer runs out.



A classic word game, Scattergories is a great game for anyone to play. To play this game, you’ll need a list of categories as well as a notepad.

A Bit Dicey - A Minute to Win It Game

This game was featured on the popular “Minute to Win It” game show. All you need in order to play is dice and popsicle sticks.


“You have one minute to build a tower of six dice on the end of a popsicle stick. The trick here is that the popsicle stick must be held in your mouth. Begin the game by placing the popsicle stick in your mouth. Then start the clock. Using your hands, begin building a tower of dice, one by one, on the end of the stick. To win this game, you must have a vertical stack of six dice on the end of the stick, and it must be freestanding. You must balance all six dice on the end of the popsicle stick in just one minute.”


The rules are simple: Do not use your face to keep the tower of dice upright. Also, if you end up dropping any dice on the floor, then you must use replacement dice from the table.


While this game might seem easy, it can be quite the challenge! Have fun playing this with your friends in your apartment this month.
