I saw this played on last Saturday. Not sure if it's "cool" (being a dice fest) but it's well presented, and certainly would appeal to kids.

A swinging dragon, it does not get cooler than that. The game is funny for the first few turns, but gets old fast. But probably one of the coolest moving parts ever.

Most of the tiles on this board are moveable. You move tiles so that you have a clear pathway to certain items you have to collect. This is a particularly good game to play with children. You can give them an advantage by letting them search for more than one item at a time. I've had some good games playing with a 4-year-old.

Talk about moving parts. I loved watching those castle walls fly apart and knocking the the tower down with a well placed shot. The added bonus to this game was it your opponent was winning, you could launch a disk at his head.

Lots of moving parts in this one, from the ball bearings to the targets.

You have to slam the plunger on this one, but then the KooKooNauts fly up into the Mothership. Other than that, it's really lame - and it doesn't fit back into the box because the rules clearly state not to take the big, unwieldy launcher apart after the initial build. Ugh!

This was the first game that came to my mind when seeing title of this geeklist.

The Merchants of Amsterdam is a cool Knizia game that was deliberately designed around a 'spring driven auction clock to perform the Dutch auctions'. Start the clock and it ticks down. The idea is that as time passes the cost of the card lowers and by slamming the clock you stop it and determine the price you pay.

Part of the fun is to make a fake move, luring your opponent in stopping the clock too early and thus make him pay far too much...
