On my last "The Best" list I asked what the next one should be and Dexterity Games got by far the most votes, so here it is...

These are the best Dexterity games I could find on BGG. I have also included some of the most popular games that the average man in the street would think is a dexterity game to see how they fare. In this category I would include Operation, Jenga and Rebound (because I was a demon at it as a kid!). These three games come bottom out of the 60 games I added to the list!
Feel free to add if you think I have missed a great dexterity game

I've added some useful information on game: best number of players, how popular they are (number of plays) and whether they are Free. I've also included a comment (or two) from a fan of the game.

The games are sorted by BGG Ranking.

This game is very fun. The hole is divided in half, so if you don't hit it just right, you not only do not get the hole-in-one, you also get a penalty. So, it is more than just a matter of aiming...you have to hit it with the right amount of force too.



It's a great game!

Ok, if you have played the small version of this game, you will most likely have a low opinion of it. But the larger game is vastly superior and plays very well. The dual ramps is a huge improvement and the action is much better. This is another excellent dexterity game.

What is not to love? This game is croquet that you can play on your table. We use a green towel for the field and the action is smooth. It takes careful aim and just the right amount of force. I especially love to rocket someone's ball to the other end of the table!laugh

Send your bandits out into the desert for loot and try to get them back to the hideout before they get (dart)gunned down.

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
