I came to the hobby through a used bookstore with a basement full of, what I realize now, are quite mediocre games; but one of the enjoyable games I found there was Body Boggle. I held onto it for years, but only had a chance to play it once or twice.

Boardgames (a la, not LARP, etc) that use People instead of Meeple...

Its like full-body dexterity games...

What other games are out there?

This plays with 2-player teams -great for couples (and for low body contact with sweaty, stinky, strangers).

Don't know anything about this one; found out about it while geekmodding today, got excited about more large vinyl gameboards and made this list.

I've seen this compared to Twister, probably for the occasional instruction like "touch your knee to a triangle AND your elbow to a red." I describe it a cousin to square dancing.

Hold an egg between your knees, run around the table, catch a bouncing egg, then tuck it under your chin. Don't drop any eggs!

9. Board Game: You Robot [Average Rating:6.00 Overall Rank:6429]
This one's not exactly a dexterity game, more of a real-time deduction game which can use the whole body (including the brain) which makes it all the more intresting. Needs people who want to and will play by the simple and few but intentionally unintuitive rules but a likeably strange experience if you do. Limited replayability but comes with so many cards that it's not too limited.
