    Skill-based games site


    hi,

    I'm looking to build a skill-based games website where people can track scores and who they played. It seems Skill based games tends to overlap with video games. By Skill-Based Games(SBG) i mean physically played games like billiards, darts, bowling, basketball, poker, etc. Basically, any non-video game. Other than "Skill-based game" are there other terms that might describe physical games?

    Thanks.

    "Skill-based" encompasses pretty much every game outside of CandyLand. Based on your limited list you could attempt to categorize them as "pub games," which is commonly used to describe billiards, snooker, shuffleboard, darts, etc. But what about Skee ball or ping-pong? And why cut video games out of the loop? The golden tee game at my local bar is constantly in high demand.

    Thanks for that. Yeah, I was initially set on keeping it limited to Physical games but, perhaps I don't want to ignore a large segment of the gaming spectrum.
