These games include a swatter either as a physical component or graphical element. Flyswatters are the archetype, but use your judgment in adding others.

Why a flyswatters geeklist? I wanted a unique topic for my first geeklist, even if it had to be an esoteric and silly one. One day I saw "Fliegen klatschen" and thought it would be better with real flyswatters...

Use swatters to slap fly cards that match the dice.

These swatters look like hands, but they're definitely swatters.

Turning a flyswatter card triggers a race to claim flies via slapping.

Lots of swatter cards. It's a speed game -- go figure. Are those mosquitoes? I was raised in mosquito country, but I've never used a swatter against one.

Card picured at top right. Reduces the population of flies by one. Nice art.

Swatter cards. Check out the bloody "splat" cards, too.

More mosquitoes. Life's too short to grab a swatter for those guys.

Flyswatter cards, used to defend food from bugs. There's also a deluxe version that has flyswatter tiles, a first on this list.

If you’re the first Redneck to get a Recliner, a Hound Dog, a Flyswatter, a Jerky, a TV, and a Satellite Dish, and get back to your trailer, you win!

Flyswatter cards, not yet pictured on BGG.

You might be a redneck if... you aren't bored stiff by twenty years of Foxworthy's redneck jokes.

The #6 cards picture a swatter, but they're purely cosmetic.

These look like they're repurposed from a tennis game to swat fly cards. This game appears to be another fast reaction game.

Judging from the components and rules PDF, this is either an uncredited reprint or a ripoff of Buzz Off!, shown earlier in this list. (I submitted a suggestion to merge the entries last year, but the admin either disagreed or forgot.)
