Looking for a dexterity type game to play with family (wife & 5yr old). PitchCar looks to be a fun game. Any others that I shouldn't miss?

The road is full of flat squirrels, who couldn't make up their mind.

How many simultaneous players?

Even number is Crokinole.

Odd is Pitchcar.

Inexpensive is Sliders.

Forgot to mention that I have Sorry Sliders already. Which is very much enjoyed. It plays well with 2-4 players too.

Pitchcar is one of my favourite games, but for mum, dad & 5yr old I'd also highly recommend Animal Upon Animal (fun for children & adults alike!)meeple

I'm a big fan of Pitchcar and would always recommend it for dexterity fun, though it can be pretty expensive.

While not quite as awesome, either Bisikle or Roadzters covers the same genre, and the Z-Ball is a lot of fun (though you may want to buy extra Z-Balls as I've found people like to have their own, even though there is no game need for more than one). Roadzters has a ramp on the back of the cars which probably gives it a bit of a nod over Bisikle, unless you're into bike racing.

For playing with kids, Tumblin-Dice is really good.

Is the gentleman with the BroStache invited to this party?

PitchCar seems like an awesome game, and one I'd really like to get, but from what I can tell, it's out of print. For those suggesting it, and those taking the suggestions without hesitation, where are you getting copies of PitchCar?
