5 Top Dexterity Games

Seriously Board has created a whole new category of games! Well, reorganized a section of games into their own new category – Dexterity Games.

What are Dexterity Games?

Dexterity-based tabletop games require dexterity to play – surprise! While they may require some strategic prowess, these games mostly involve tasks that use your hands.  From flicking and throwing, to sliding and catching, to stacking and unstacking.

Here are 5 great dexterity games for children and adults:


Table hockey – but with magnets! You control your piece by holding a large magnet under the board.  Use your piece to push the small, red ball around the field and into your goal hole.  But avoid attracting the magnetic obstacles in the middle of the board.

At the top of a wooden pedestal sits a board balanced upon a cork ball.  On this board 25 wooden pieces are placed.  Can you remove the most pieces without a tumble? A game of skill for aspiring gravity experts.

Ice Cool:

A fun flicking game of chase.  Race penguins around a school – students skipping class, or a hall monitor catching escapees.

Rhino Hero

Enjoy stacking cards? Be the first to construct your building while contending with an incredibly heroic – and regrettably heavy – rhinoceros who is eager to climb.
