I would love a modern version of Heroquest, but I fear it wont have the plastic bits due to production cost.

Gaming for us recently has been alot of Unmatched - think Star Wars Epic Duels but streamlined (any game that lets Bruce Lee fight Raptors is good by me). And some Frostgrave or TFT. I started experimenting with a new way of making modular walls for minis wargaming, so I have been toying around with that with light skirmish matches.

The last board game night I had was in February. I think I have played a little Azul and Forbidden Desert with the kids since then but that is it. Someone got me Above and Below for my birthday and haven't been able to play it yet. I'm really missing my monthly board game night. Maybe I should try out the single player version of Scythe sometime.

Ive always found it hard to get people to play board games with. And even when you do, there's always that one person that loses interest halfway in and just sucks the fun out of it.

I have a group of people that I invite via email. I know most of them from work. Some come regularly and some rarely come. I usually have enough people over to have two games running concurrently. I started with a small group that I knew would be super into it and expanded from there. I occasionally get a person that loses interest but they usually just find someone to socialize with and the games continue. It hasn't been a big deal for me.

Maaaan, I really want to play Above and Below. That has been on my Want To Play list for quite a while.

I have a friend that I play board games with every Friday and that is really the only time I play board games. We have a rotating cast of people we know that sometimes shows up here and there, but mostly its just the two of us.
