Games that look good set out on your coffee table. Must have "chunky" bits preferably wooden or brightly colored, with a high piece density. This list was "lifted" from two discussions on spielfrieks. Thanks to Scott Nicholson and Mark Johnson for the idea,

Big, Wood and Marbles, what more could you want (on your coffee table). Pente-like x in a row game but on a hex grid.

I had never heard of this game before until I found out Boardspace.net had implemented it. I tried it there and loved it. I, of course, have heard of, played, and really liked Quoridor (which this on the surface seems to be similar to), but Entrapment seems to be a bit meatier.

Looks good doesn't it?

The beauty and quality of this game just invite people to play. It was literally designed to be a "coffee table game" with artwork to be displayed when not in use. The back of the picture print folds down to become the race track. I love everything about this game. The horse and jocky pieces are heavy cast metal sculpts...the track has a faux distressed look to it...the game box is wood...sigh. I enjoy playing this, too.

This game is well made and beautifully appointed. It is deliberately "distressed" to give it the look of an antique. It comes with two 1/2 inch ball bearings for the balls. The spring loaded plunger action is smooth and consistent. The flapper action is also smooth. The flapper itself looks like the head of a driver.

The artwork is superb.

This is a beautiful game of mechanical dexterity and quality components that really invites people to play. The wood...the distressed artwork...the theme all combine to make it a real trophy of a coffee table game.
