There's no simple explanation for anything important any of us do, and yeah the human tragedy consists of the necessity of living with the consequences, under pressure, under pressure. -Courage (For Hugh Maclennan): The Tragically Hip

Hey, I know they’re simple. I know there’s virtually no strategy, or even thought process involved, but every once in awhile I love a good push your luck game!

I own nine, and they’re fast and fun, and I can easily play them with my kids. They are: Can't Stop, Unnamed Object, Zombie Dice, Skull, Ca$h 'n Gun$, King of Tokyo, Formula D, No Thanks!, and Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age.

Do you like push your luck games? What are your favourites?

Diamant Very quick, easy to explain, simple rules, and has a bit of tactics (do what the others aren't doing).

We just got The Adventurers: The Temple of Chac. So far after 10 games our kids and us adults love it.

I really like Zooloretto. Timing is vital in this game. Should I pick this truck now or do I dare to wait?

You hit almost all of my favorites already.

The only one I would add is Ra/Razzia!, an excellent auction game that includes some great push-your-luck moments.
