Well, after the dense, heavy game of Lisboa, we all needed a palate cleanser. Something lighter, sillier perhaps. Maybe where your success doesn't depend on how many moves ahead you have planned, but rather on if you can make this thing balance on that thing, or how well you can flick a piece of wood around a table? Having the ability for everything you created to be destroyed because you exhaled a LITTLE too hard? It's time for dexterity games!

Some of the games mentioned include Suspend, Rampage(Terror In Meeple City), Pitch Car, Rhino Hero, Rhino Hero: Super Battle, Ice Cool, and others.
