During the past two thanksgiving holidays at my parents' place, Crokinole and Fastrack were HUGE hits.

I'm already thinking about next year. I think one reason these were a hit is that they were more like indoor sports than board games (for whatever reason, my family treats learning a new game about like a trip to the dentist...)

Any thoughts on other indoor BGG games that feel as much like a sport as a game?

Carrom is obviously one, as is PitchCar. (Alas, the latter is probably too big for my parents' house.) Others = Sorry! Sliders and Caveman Curling.

Other dexterity games which involve stacking are a possibility (e.g. Hamsterolle, Bausack, Villa Paletti) but we've played Jenga so much that I don't think those games are best (and they don't really feel like a sport, if you know what I mean).

Further ideas?

Oh and Piratenbillard also belongs in that category I guess.

In that vein also are Cube Quest and Catacombs and others I am sure (though these are all tiptoe-ing up to the "more of a boardgame than a sport" threshold.

Some other possibilities here, surely:

A different example is Loopin' Louie.

And Monster Trap is a version that involves teamwork.
