Games where you have to manage items based on how many hands it takes to use them.

Traditionally, you only get two hands, but there are some games that give you ways to have more...

The first game where this idea was shown to me, but not its first appearance, I'm sure.

Munchkin has a LOT of sequels, which I can't be bothered to add. There's nothing stopping you from doing so, but I don't think it's necessary. *shrug*

The game that inspired me to create this list.

Mostly because of the psychic character with the Third Eye ability which gives her a bonus hand for casting spells.

Different actions require a different number of hands (up to 3, if I remember rightly!) and you can acquire an extra one.

And some things require a brain. But that's outside the scope of this list.

Items show a number of hands it takes to use them

Ditto, I believe for Descent: Journeys in the Dark.

You can have but two weapons. Which is a pity, since it usually means that candle + gas rarely gets used.

Never played it, but it sure looks like fun.
Must convince my father-in-law to run it some time.

No fair! They're using brains against us! We removed our brains to make room for guns and explosives!

Weapons of Choice are listed as either one handed or two handed. Not a lot of other use that I recall but its been a while since I've played.

You've got two hands in which You can hold a weapon or a shield or You may grab something two-handed to use a heavier weapon.
