'Minute to Win It' Hangover Game



All you need to do in this game is to hang wire coat hangers together, keeping the hooks out of the corners of the hangers above them.

The Goal

In 60 seconds or less, hang six coat hangers from a rod, one underneath the other. Keep the hooks centered (or at least away from the corners) and you're golden.

Equipment Needed

  • Some type of rod to hang the hangers from
  • Six standard wire coat hangers

How to Play

This game is dead simple. When the clock starts, pick up your hangers. Hang one on the rod, and then hang the next one from the bottom of the first. Keep placing the hangers one under the the other until all of them are hung. As long as all of the hooks stay out of the corners of the hangers above them, you win.

The Rules

  • Only one hanger may be touching the rod.
  • You may not bend or stretch the coat hangers.
  • If a hook slides to the corner of a hanger, you can start over again.

Tips and Tricks

The only real trick to this game is the obvious one: keep the hooks centered as much as possible.
