Don't get me wrong. I enjoy colonizing the new world, European imperialism, constructing medieval monuments, corporate takeovers, ancient Egypt, German politics, the Cold War, and Mediterranean civilizations just as much as the next gamer. Participating in a contest of wits with a group of adults can be very stimulating (and even enjoyable).

However, in certain situations, stuffy adult games and mature themes just won't cut it. In part, gaming is a form of escapism. I game to forget about that annoying coworker, the mortgage payment, tedious yardwork, looming deadlines, overdue credit card bills, and automobile maintenance. It is fun to discard the heavy mantle of adulthood and regress every now and then.

Think back to your childhood. Did you ever use the term suboptimal play, suffer from analysis paralysis, or debate the differences between strategy and tactics? No. Did you worry about seating order bias, prefer games with little downtime, or have a least-favorite mechanism? No.

Here on the geek, many of the most popular games are disguised as adult activities. Games are structured, processional, and analytical. As children, play was a lively, carefree activity that was largely experiential. As a kid, play was fun. Yes, play was rollicking, boisterous, jocular, carefree, uproarious fun. How often can you say that about your weekly session of Puerto Rico or Caylus?

This list is dedicated to dexterity games that have the ability to make even the most hardened, stoic adult gamers approach play with a child-like wonder and naivety. So,

Screw Colonizing the New World. I Want to Flick Something.

"If you don't like this game then you're either fooling yourself or you don't have a heart. Sure, it's a kid's game and sure it's as mindless as can be, BUT damnit if it isn't fun as hell. Louie giveth and Louie taketh away. Be at zen with the chicken and maybe you too will see why this game demands the following it does. All praise the biplane god!"

"Loads of fun and laughs. Brilliant!!!"

"Great fun! Everybody laughing, priceless."

mbmbmbmbmb
"So much fun, it elicited my first peer-judged review on this site. Not our first dexterity game, but certainly the first one that *really* clicked with us. So much fun to play - discs have a perfect weight to them for throwing, and the set collecting nature of the spices means that likely everyone's gunning for the rare ones when they come up, making the competitive blood surge. Add in some subtle strategy, and you have a winning game that I know is going to hit the table many, many times."

"Very good game: nice components, neat idea, some "take that" mechanics, dexterity, tactics... simply a beautiful game, which I can wholeheartedly recommend."

"Yay! I've been waiting for a dexterity/euro for years and this one did it right. The game hangs on a simple market system and VPs based on set collection, but the basic skeleton allows for players to make significant decisions vying for positions throwing various valued poker chips around. I love it!"

"Get the right spices at the right prices. That's the recipe for this wacky cooking-themed combination dexterity/economic game.

I bought Safranito mostly for its weirdness factor, but it has exceeded my expectations. It's been a big hit with the family, providing a relaxing blend of action, humor, and screwage, with a splash of strategy. I was afraid that the rules for buying and selling spices would be too game-y for such a light and silly game, but they aren't."

owning half of the games on this list so far there are two that are worth mentioning.

First finally tracked a copy of this HABA game> OOP and not the easiest to track down but it is simple enough to make your own I suppose.

"guaranteed to make you laugh and make all stress disappear"

"Possibly the greatest dexterity game yet. An excitiing and utterky stupid game that will leave wondering how something so simple can possibly generate so many laughs! "

"What a blast! Completely silly and completely pointless, but a great dexterity game that makes you lunge and dive and generally make a fool of yourself."

This gem from Haba is probably my all-time favorite dexterity game. The animals are adorable, and the game is as silly as any dexterity game, but there's an element of strategy that's not always apparent the first couple of times you play. It's not just about getting your own animals up there -- it's also about making it as difficult as possible for the next guy to get his on the pile!

"this game always makes me laugh histerically. It doesn't feel too serious and can be played with a wide rage of people, including non gamers."

"Wow, I had fun. The Society for Putting Things on Top of Other Things approves."

"There is an element of hope for almost every play. For example, I have landed and seen pieces landed on towers that I thought were for sure going to topple. It is at that moment - after you land it - when you feel a major rush of fun."

"I swear I`ve seen physically impossible buildings!"

Here is another good one. With a bit of strategy even. And a really big board. And cool bits. Great fun at anytime. Some of the optional rules can add quite a bit to playability and move it past a "move and shoot" game.

Plus its "Piraty"! shake

I can't believe no one has added this. Maybe it's not the best dexterity game out there, but on occasion it can be a riot. Any game that has more clean-up time than game time can't be all bad.

"Fantastic production. A fast, brutal dexterity game with strong a theme, and a fair amount of strategy."

"I like dexterity games, and this one has definitely something more.
The rules are really simples, but there is a lot of tactics in the game. You try to protect your explorers with your mercenaries, you use the reefs to hide your pieces and make bounces and there are so many turnarounds it's always possible to win... or to loose."

"Played 3 times. The folding board is really neat and the walls with sticky tack are a brilliant idea. The pieces are light enough that they don't move the walls when they ricochet. ... The game is pretty fun and there's lots of opportunity for clever shots and tactical positioning moves. And did I mention how they make the board fold is pretty cool."

"Beautiful flicking game... Fun ..."

"I love Crokinole and I love Elchfest, but this takes dexterity games to a new level of excitment!!! Not so much skill is needed though a good aim will go a long way. A rare gem that gets me hootin' and hollerin' while playing! This has going straight to the top of our most played games at our club game days. The only problem I've experienced is that after a few hours of hearing the disks banging around, headaches abound! (and no one can figure out why!)"

"Great game, one of the most fun and "laugh while you play" dexterity games I have ever played. Great for setting the mood for a fun and silly game night, or for polishing off the game night with a rousing and fast game."

"This game is crack on acid! So fun, so fast, and anyone who doesnt like it needs a punch in the stomach."

"This game is a blast -- fast, vicious, and chaotic! If you like Crokinole, you'll probably like Passe-Trappe and yet it won't feel duplicative."

"Played once, found it a clever Carabande-like game. The interaction of gradients with the ball-bearing-weighted balls is especially interesting. I also like that it's got some inertia, so moves tend to be shorter and a little more tactical, and less likely to be blown out by a lucky shot, as can happen in Carabande. Also, the plastic playing surface and round ball are less likely to be impacted by seams and other track imperfections, which could be a hassle in Carabande. While the ZBall does have some interesting potential for spins and such, it's also still light and seems like it can be a little finicky, so we'll see if the game has staying power. But initial impressions were favorable, and it's very nice that that they give you get a little bit of everything (tunnel, jump, risers) in the base set."

"Better than Pitchcar IMO. The track pieces are very nice and textured. The set is a great value for everything you get. The kids love it."

"This game is very similar to Pitchcar, but the differences in feel make it worth owning both games. They did a lot of things right with this game and improved on the faults that Pitchcar has. For example: The rails snap in place on the sides of the tracks, so they don't constantly pop out. The plastic road pieces fir together easily and provide a snug and smooth fit. Surprisingly, the track pieces stay flat and smooth even when adding the pillars underneath for height changes.

You get quite a lot of pieces all in the base set. Including a ramp and tunnel. Which is a huge plus. The expansions are cheap and allow you to add to the game. Allowing for bigger track configurations.

As you probably already know. Instead of flicking pucks. You flick a little weighted ball, which can be very tricky and unpredictable. I think this will take a little getting used to. Especially when used to flicking the pucks in Pitchcar, which give you a little more control of your shoots.

All in all. I had a lot of fun and laughs with this game. The improvements over Pitchcar were a very warm welcome. If you like Pitchcar. I highly recommoend this game also, as they both have enough of a different feel to justify owning both and you can't beat all you get for the price."

"The constant tension of grabbing the totem quicker than your rivals is great! After a few games the speed of card drawing gets higher and mistakes are devestating. THE best reaction game ever!"

"I liked this game enough at first because I like reaction time games and the production is excellent. But this holiday season my family could not get enough of this game. We were all jacked up on Jungle Speed and even though knuckles were almost broken and blood was drawn---everyone kept asking for this (it is quick to learn, quick to play)!"

"Wow! If I had to apply the phrase "pure game" to one title, this is probably it. At the moment when two shapes match, be the first to grab the totem. That's the game. Speed, coordination, and correct judgment are all equally important. Your hand must be quick, and sure, at the right time."

"Fast, quick party game that will make you laugh at yourself. Rating goes up after my sister-in-law bit me in a fight over the sacred totem."

"Simple filler. I discover that the more I play this, the more I like it. A very well-designed dexterity game."

"So portable! So affordable!"

"Nice portable game that should appeal to any fan of skill and action games like Crokinole. Also a great game to play with the kids before bed."

"More compact than Carabande, more elegant than Elchfest. Great opener."

"Quite a fun dexterity game, sort of a cross between Don't Break the Ice and Jenga. I believe the second edition was the one I played. Very clever design, plays quickly and quite addictive. Yes, it's a kid's game, but a quality example of such."

"Silly but very addictive dexterity filler."

"Silly fun. Hit the tree with an axe to collect bits of bark without causing the core of the trunk to come crashing down. Nice (plastic) bits, and it's surprising how out of joint you can smack the tree without it actually toppling."
