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.

A dart shooting board game where the players try to get the cowboys to recover loot before being gunned down. I'm currently exploring publishing options and hope to release the game sometime in 2013.

Particularly good as a two- or three-player game, but plays up to about 8, room permitting.

Players must take turns to hit the Ferret, but can additionally aim to block or or attack their opponents.

Only requires the coins in your wallet and a flat surface to play which makes it really portable

"The most perfect simulation of football."

"The best dexterity game! In Brazil it is a sport, with organized leagues and regular championships."


The BGG pictures make no justice to how beautiful this game looks. The comments give the sense of how tight the rules are and how big it is in Brazil.

What is unwritten is this game's capacity of attracting people to play it. Whenever there was a table in a "party-like" situation, we were able to put exciting tournaments together with a lot of tension and cheering.

I have an official table at my house and my friends here are always asking to play.

"Takes Jenga to the next level adding a level of strategy to the game. The pieces could have been done much better, but for a small indie publisher it's a really well done game. The value you get for this game is quite high. If you like a little strategy with your dexterity games this is the one for you."

"lots of laughing and tense moments. An intriguing mix of strategy and dexterity."

"Excellent strategy game. Seductively simple idea but as you play you begin to quickly see how strategy makes or breaks your opponent. Love the game as do my friends and my brother."

"Block building game very similar to Die Aufsteiger. Dice are used to pick the piece you place and then you move your meeple as high as they can go. Movement is restricted several ways including height, color and a clear path. Has a little bit of a Jenga feel also."

"This might actually be the game that fired Descent!"

"Very quick to pick up and play. Catacombs has a wonderfully fast pace that keeps everyone in the action. I really enjoy this one."

"Wow--Descent meets Pitchcar. Seriously, this is the type of game that I've been looking for. Fun, conflict based action game. I wanted to play it again as soon as I tried it. Would be perfect to play with family--bridges age gaps perfectly."

"Pure brilliance. Crokinole meets a dungeon crawl, and the abilities of the heroes translate into different mechanics for how you flick their tokens at the monsters, that totally work and are well themed.

One of the most innovative games in a long time. Combines great dungeon crawl theme with a dexterity game."

Wow! How did this not make one of the first three submissions? So much fun. Got no dexterity? Stay away from this one. The more you play the better you get so there is a real gap between the best and worst players, but the competition is awesome among equals and the excitement and intensity is fantastic.

I am so dominant on my home ice some friends once kidnapped my center. He was missing for four weeks (the Adrian, Michigan police were alarmingly unsympathetic and no help whatsoever in securing his return). He finally turned up, hanging from a noose, on my Christmas tree.

Ah, the indignity! Although clearly you can see the game brings out the worst in people (sore losers, obnoxious winners) it is a blast. You can do some handicapping by playing doubles and matching the best and worst players against the middle two.

Taktika is a game of medieval style battles that can be played on almost any smooth tabletop.

Play is similar to Crokinole or Carrom in that you are flicking wooden discs. However, Taktika adds different unit types (Archers, Infantry, and Cavalry) that must each move and attack differently.

Quote:
Santa has only five houses left to deliver gifts to this Christmas Eve. Unfortunately, the town is rife with hunters that only want one thing for Christmas--venison! Will Santa be able to deliver all the toys to the good little boys and girls before the hunters shoot all of his reindeer down?

Venison is a flicking game with one player assuming the role of the hunter and the other of the reindeer. The reindeer player's goal is to deliver gifts to all five houses by flicking his reindeer pieces into them. The hunter's goal is to kill all of the reindeer using pieces representing claw traps and bullets.



"Cool game, I like the way that it appears that the Hunter starts at a disadvantage, but as the game progresses it becomes more difficult for the Reindeer to survive." - James Smith

"A player that is too good at the Reindeer leaves nothing for the hunters.

I'd like to see this become a bit more difficult -- more obstacles, multiple goals, movement where the pieces stay where they are for next round (flicking deer from where they last were positioned).

Needs a Santa instant Christmas death variant, scrapped rounds and shored up rules. Still this is a great start (rated higher for potential)." - Morgan Dontanville

"Lotsa fun in a small package. A must buy for me"

"Essentially a cross between lawn bowling (rules) and Crokinole. The designer described it to me as 'poor man's crokinole'.

"The game plays well and the rules are flexible enough to cover a variety of play surfaces. ... Cute, simple and expected to be cheap. This is a clever twist on Crokinole and I'm sure many will go 'Why didn't I think of that!?'"

"Fun simple flicking game. Like the idea its works on any table..."

"Not quite as cool as Crokinole, but most of the fun for a fraction of the expense, and much more portable."

"Bite-size curling. This falls in one of my very favorite categories of games: I don't care if I'm good at it or not, it's just fun to play. I only wish it were more widely distributed."

"* This is a really enjoyable dexterity game / simulation of curling but without brooms!
* The stones are actually well made with ball bearings in that you can actually put a bit of spin/curve on the ball to get around blocks.
* There is a lot of fun in hitting a great shot...and groans on poor shots. This one really gets you into the feeling of actually playing"

"Exactly what you'd expect: a light dexterity game using the rules for Curling and featuring small plastic stones that roll on a ball-bearing.

I love curling and having a fun table game like this themed to the sport was a natural for me. It's fun to play, and as in real life, it can easily be played with teams for added amusement.

The publisher was also kind enough to include mini-levels in the box so it is easy to see if the sheet is suitably level for play.

I'm currently terrible at this and have a hard time judging my shots (or even getting the stone into the house), but I love this title and anticipate getting a lot of play out of my copy."

Hello, people of the geek.

Really? Hovertext? Whatever.
mbmbmbmbmb
Another one of my favorite dexterity games - this one involves rolling metal balls down a ramp, trying to knock a soccer ball into your opponent's goal. Loud, messy, exciting, and quick. The only downside is the space it requires (which is why I don't own it).
