This is a fun game. Good at parties and with non-gamers as well.

Where to find it? In my bookshelf for example, but guess that's not what you mean?

Good dexterity game, kinda like tiddlywinks.

Easy enough to find since it is Steve Jackson Games.

We enjoy this game. Don't play against architects and engineers or you will lose every time.

Only got a handful but is my favourite. Needs a biggish table though.
Available at Funagain by the looks of it.

Not so much the "steady hands" style as much as the "guess how many beads are in the container without looking" style. you can find this one almost anywhere.

A great one among the dexterity and racing set. I'm terribly prone to the dreaded "over-flick"

Hurling the dice into strategic positions and or to knock other dice over to better sides for you count, right??? This seems to have some decent reviews and at least 3 expansions. You can get it direct at www.cheapassgames.com

This looks like a lot of fun. Play-Me are offering it for a pittance (I just got a copy) and it's also at Spieloffensive at a much higher price. There's also tactics in this one so it's not pure dexterity.

This is the best construction dexterity game.
Most German mail order shops should have copies, e.g. Adam spielt.

the possibilities are endless

- play with young kids
- turn it into a drinking game
- use the monkeys as poker chips
- add multiple barrels to expand the game
- string linked monkeys about your home as decoration
- use real sweaty, smelly, feces-throwing monkeys
- flick the monkeys about on a miniature race track
- introduce "pissed off monkey god" tactic to Age of Mythology

A great dexterity game. I prefer wooden bumpers to the rubber tubing bumpers.

Subbuteo is very fun at least my brother and I think so. It does take some practice to be able to put the ball and slide the men where you want them to go.

This is a kids game, though adults seem to enjoy it as well. Particularly if they've had a drink or two...

Usually available at Fair Play Games:
http://www.fairplaygames.com/gamedisplay.asp?gameid=1627
though it's hard to say at the moment.

Ah, the diabolical Dice … a word of caution; don't throw them when you're alone. The fiends lack loyalty, and their notion of nourishment is quite disturbing.

Quickly became the most fun game I own and the most played game at our club game days. Expensive but worth every single penny.

Purchase at funagain.com.
