Released some time ago, this title quickly built up momentum and now with over 18 million plays, it’s the most popular game available on the legendary Hacked Arcade Games site. These games and others, as they require reflexes and coordination, are generally performed more poorly by intoxicated persons but are unlikely to result in injury because of this; as such the games are popular as drinking games In addition, dedicated drinking games such as quarters and beer pong also involve physical coordination and are popular for similar reasons.
It is worth noting that many games falling into this category, particularly party games , are more free-form in their play and can involve physical activity such as mime, however the basic premise is still that the game does not require a large area in which to play it, large amounts of strength or stamina, or specialized equipment other than what comes in the box (games sometimes require additional materials like pencil and paper that are easy to procure).
Games such as jacks , paper football , and Jenga require only very portable or improvised equipment and can be played on any flat level surface, while other examples, such as pinball , billiards , air hockey , foosball , and table hockey require specialized tables or other self-contained modules on which the game is played.

Board games often use dice for a randomization element, and thus each roll of the dice has a profound impact on the outcome of the game, however dice games are differentiated in that the dice do not determine the success or failure of some other element of the game; they instead are the central indicator of the person’s standing in the game.
