I do not own the game yet!
I also do not own any flick based board games.
While thinking about people coming over to play. i always image some one flicking a piece off the table, then everyone stopping to play to find the piece. I would hate to lose pieces or have people stop the fun looking for flicked pieces.

How is this prevented from happening?

Even a basic die roll can often drop off the table.

In Flick 'em Up! you are not allowed to gain any extra momentum by using your thumb against your forefinger, or against the table itself. This lessens any massive power shots.

Yep. This rule, which is a great one, prevents too many wild flicks

Also bullets are the most likely bits to go flying - and the game comes with 4 of them. So in the course of a given game you can keep playing with the extra bullets while a people can look for fallen bullets when it's not their turn

In the demo I played, one person would often play "goalie", standing on the other side of the table to catch or at least watch where the shot goes. Although I suppose it would only be a matter of time before that person tries to distract the shooter - at least in my game group... shake

Anyway, I found pieces flying off is not really an issue. The pieces are relatively large and pretty easy to find.

My first impression when this came out was "I hope they make a bunch of replacement bullets for sale". However, having played two scenarios last night, we never dropped a bullet off of the table. Usually the other players were in a position around the table that they could back-stop shots that carried allot of velocity. It also helps that the puck doesn't seem to want to lift off of the table.
