In the new NBC show “Minute to Win It,” players are faced with increasingly difficult physical challenges that they have to complete in a minute or less. After getting sucked into this show too many times during an otherwise boring summer of television, we realized that some of these challenges could be very easily turned into drinking games. We sifted through nearly every game played thus far, and found 10 that were particularly apt. We've adapted some of the materials, rules, and set up to accommodate the Bro's drinking needs and athletic abilities. All games must be completed within one minute. Not completing tasks within a minute results in full beer chug by all players. Check out all 10 'Minute to Win It'-inspired drinking games after the jump.
Note: The instruction videos are all for the original "Minute to Win It" challenges. You'll need to adapt them for your own drinking-game purposes.

What You Need: 3 cups of varying size; 2 tables
Set Up: Place the three cups on one table, near the second table.
Challenge: Pick up and move varying sized cups from one table to the other using only your mouth (water cooler cop, dixie cup, Solo cup, etc). If a cup is dropped, player has to chug. Make it tougher by adding beer to the cups and limiting the amount of "spillage."
What You Need: 6 empty cans; 1 yo-yo
Set Up: Create a pyramid of cans. Stand a considerable distance from the pyramid.
Challenge: Player knocks over a pyramid of empties using a yo-yo. For the amount of cans left standing, chug that many times.
What You Need: Partner; 3 ping pong balls; 1 Solo cup
Set Up: Player One holds Solo cup on their head. Player Two stands at least 8 feet away.
Challenge: Player 1 catches 3 ping pong balls in a Solo cup on their head, thrown by Player 2. For each missed throw, both players must drink.
Drop, Clink and Sink
What You Need: Lots of Quarters; 3 shot glasses; 3 Solo cups (or fishbowls)
Set Up: Fill cups with beer, drop shot glasses in cups.
Challenge: Drop a quarter into 3 shot glasses at the bottom of 3 Solo cups filled with beer, when the quarters make it: chug. The challenge is more difficult the larger the Solo cups are; really, a fishbowl is the true challenge.
What You Need: 1 marble; 6 shot glasses.
Set Up: Fill shot glasses.
Challenge: Player bounces a marble into one of 6 full shot glasses, then takes the shot from that glass.
