Skill Games

We begin skill gamers jargon with the definition of these game types. A game of skill is a game where the result is determined generally by mental and/or physical skill, as opposed to pure chance or luck. Skill games require additional equipment/tools to play, such as dice, a game board or playing cards.

There are several types of skill games: card, board, tile, physical or sports, word, dice and puzzle games. A benefit of skill games is that they are a method of exploring one's own competence. These games encourage keen players to analyze and develop strategies.
