...So play these games to keep your hands moving, a lot!

Here's a list of games that involve a lot of activity, mostly the hectic kind during play, but also if you think there's more upkeep than time spent thinking, that would probably work here, too.

Sure, part of the game you are just watching the head ship captain flip cards, but really, for about 2/3 of the game, you're frantically trying to grab pieces in order to build the perfect ship. Don't sit still too long, or else your opponent will grab all the guns and engines and crates, and you're left with some batteries to help you shield your useless connectors.

If you and your friends don't suffer from AP too badly, then you'll be shuffling the devil away non stop.

This isn't Jungle Mosey, it's Jungle Speed. Better move your hands quickly, flip those cards fast, and grab that totem!

If you're not rolling as quickly as you can, you are doing something wrong. Get stuck with all black masks, and you will be sitting there, twiddling your thumbs, so do your best to avoid that fate!

You need to move those pieces quickly in order to try all the permutations in order to get to say UBONGO! The worse you are at this, the more time you get to spend moving your hands, so at least you aren't thinking any evil, devilish thoughts while you are occupied.

Pretty similar to Ubongo, in that you need to push those tiles around in order to find the best configuration of letters rather than to find the best orientation. Don't be afraid to split in order to avoid sitting there staring for too long!

You can try to get by without doing much, and sometimes that works, but if it does then you aren't trying hard enough. Move those figures around, perform as many actions as you can to help your crew! Like Galaxy Trucker, though, there is some down time, so you'll have to consciously push the devil away rather than occupy your time.

The best game for pure mayhem and the need for fast hands. I've actually seen paper cuts and bloody knuckles during a night of Dutch Blitz.

Real-time putting pyramids onto stacks of other pyramids, pulling your pyramids out of stacks of pyramids, and splitting stacks of pyramids.

Try this one using the "silent" variant, where you offer trades with your fingers rather than your voice.

11. Board Game: Ghost Blitz: 5 to 12 [Average Rating:6.97 Overall Rank:2228]

I'm a very tactile person, so I love this game! It's all about grabbing the correct object faster than anyone else. There's a few other Geistesblitz games all with the same premise, but 5 vor 12 is a personal favorite.
