Due to recently stumbling across Push It, I decided to just quickly put together a geeklist of simple dexterity games.

Its a short list, but please feel free to add games, as long as the component overhead is low.

Like Bocce, shoot from the same side. Uses coins, from the piecepack system.

Endgame is per (according to author) traditional Bocce rules - you must hit 21 exactly or else you subtract the round's score from your current score (so if you're at 20 and score 4, your score goes down to 16).

No rules on this page, but someone pointed towards Table Bocce.

The description mentions a game "Squalys" using these components but I couldn't find a link to it.

Each of the two players (or team) has 6 pieces per round.

Each player (up to 4) has 2 pieces per round.

Simultaneous "push it" tie breaker mechanism that eliminates the need to measure close conditions. This is a nice streamlining of the game.

This is also not a BGG entry, but its a game I learned in college. I played with the shoot through the other two coins variant.

Something about elks and stuff. I need to look into this more. I'd say this is a reasonable upper limit for component complexity.

Coin Basketball: A simple game we played in high school.

One player has the "ball"--usually a quarter which he spins on its edge. The other player forms a basket by holding his hands against his stomach and sitting right at the edge of the table to form a backboard.

The shooting player, with his fists knuckles down on the table, tries to grip the spinning coin with his two thumbs and shoot for a basket. (Moving/lifting the fists while attempting the shot is traveling.)

(The pictured game is pretty simple too, just flip the levers to shoot the ball. It ends up being a bit like foozball.)
