We've played several now at the friend's house. One based on Lovecraft. One where the ground is disappearing underneath you. One with pirates. I know the name of a few. Everdell, Wingspan, and Viticulture. All different, all fun.
It's just amazing that people come up with these ideas, doing I can't imagine how many test runs, refining the rules. There might be some common things that you need in all games, but I'm not experienced enough to know what they are. All the games seem entirely different to me.

A work colleague has leant me one called Chronicles of Crime, where you have to work together to solve a murder. I haven't played it yet, but it looks pretty interactive - has a board and some cards, but also an app which allows for lots of different mysteries. So apparently the game can be played multiple times.
We recently did a murder mystery dinner party - I know, very 80s - it was fun! And the other ones we have played recently are Escape Room games where you have a limited amount of time to find the clues and therefore escape. We failed miserably on the first one, we have a few more to go.
We have played a few others in the last 12 months - I just can't remember what they are. Will have to check...

Obviously, we've seen a lot less of these game hosts and their attendee pool in the last three years.

Ever entertaining: Settlers of Catan. Monoply. Risk.
Are card games a totally separate thing? I think card games are basically board games without a board.
Ever entertaining: Uno. Magic the Gathering. Rummy.
