*knocks a cube off its track.*
Oops.
*moves piece back onto its spot, knocking over a pawn.*
Oops.
*moves one of the 100 tiny decks of cards back into place.*
AUGH.

I am placing my streetcars, trying to go between buildings. End up knocking everything over. My friends start chanting "JENGA".

Some of the mini-games are dexterity-based? But I'm talking about the meta-games:

-Fitting everything on the table
-Wrangling people using ropes and tethers as they try to drift away while you're explaining how they can NOT explode your ship.

Sometimes you have to run away from people. Perhaps that's more of a "sport" than a dexterity game. It definitely counts, though, if they throw things.

There are reasons they came out with a deluxe version. As is, pulling a center hex often realigns tectonic plates. Chubby digits like mine make me feel more penguinesque, but I've not yet seen the ultra-super-deluxe version which provides a beakish headgear to allow you to snatch and flip the fish tiles naturally.

Earlier today my mate and I were nearing the conclusion of this game. Cats are chasing eachother. Small cat jumps up on to the table in order to escape. Cubes and buildings go flying.

This happens at least once a week! Well, the cat part, not always with Caylus ...

This game is a 3D combat game where dragons fly and try to knock each other out, while also going for the dragonlance in the middle of the board.

You have to move elevation towers with your dragon on top as high as 10- discs put on top of each other. Then there are gates near the central tower where you need to push the dragon-elevation tower under.

Then imagine having an elevation-tower on the other side of those gates, near the tower. You have to move it AND add another disc under your dragon.

Your tower fell down? Better hope it didn't knock surrounding towers in the process...



(notice in this picture, the gates themselves are not in their holes. They've probably been knocked out of their position themselves before taking the picture)

I'm not saying you I NEED to have a skyscraper that's 12 stories high, but the rules allow it, so I'm doing it.

The first edition of Homesteaders had player screens that were not all that stable. I think I remember the designer joking that it ended up adding some humor to the game, as inevitably someone would tip their screen over and have to scramble to hide everything before their opponents could take a full inventory.
