I've been playing a game called Saboteur recently.   The premise is that you are a group of dwarves trying to mine for gold.  Each turn, you draw a card, then you can either play tunnel cards to try to progress your tunnel to one of the three goal cards (one of them is gold, the other two are rocks), action cards, or pass (and discard a card). 

If your team reaches the gold before the cards run out, then they split gold nugget cards with the person who placed the tunnel that reached the gold getting first choice.

At the beginning of each round, some players are secretly assigned the role of saboteur, who gets nuggets at the end of the round if the team doens't reach the gold.  One thing that's interesting, which I don't think I've seen in another "secret role" type game, is that it's not guaranteed that there will be a saboteur each round.  So you could have a team with no saboteurs, but everyone vaguely suspicious of each other.  Add to that that, since the miner who reaches the gold first gets a bigger reward, there's incentive to not always set up your teammates for the win, but instead try to get it yourself.

It's a pretty fun game.  So far I've only played it in groups of 4, which kinda I think skews things towards the "golddiggers" and makes it pretty hard for the saboteur to win, but they have gotten pretty close a couple of rounds.

Reported casino, that looks like a bot spammer..

http://spyfall.crabhat.com/ is a digital version of a card game (which maybe started off as a forum game?)

you play around a table with people asking each other questions. They have to respond then ask someone else. If you think you know who the spy is, guess. If you are the spy you try to guess location.

When you ask questions you want to give away to the team that you know the secret location but not be too obvious so the spy can guess.

Lately I've been playing a lot of Pandemic with the Lab expansion.

It makes the game a lot more thematic. No longer you need 5 cards just to cure a desease, now you have to take samples, work on the lab, test the vaccine to actually find a cure.

It takes away what bothered me in the base game (having to meet at the exact city to pass a card), and game it a nice thematic twist.

We are loving it so far.

I finally tried Terraforming Mars! It's everything I hoped it would be. It's partially a German-style board game where you put things on places, but with a lot of different characters and event cards. Players work together, but each for their own personal gain. Random is quite strong, and the game lasts a long of time, but surprisingly, I don't mind either of those things. It's just a lot of fun, characters even get to interact with each other. Also there's a 1 player solo mode!!!

I'm the mainstream tabletop gamer though, i enjoy a good match of Uno with some dear friends of mine.
Monopoly is rare these days, how many times do you need to run it to just bore yourself out? Like 5 as a kid, and 1 for nostalgia.

Uno though, my longest game was around an hour, we were four players and reshuffled the deck when we ran out of the cards. So with a perfect loop of +4s and +2s we comboed each other from uno to full hands and it took us around 5 deck shuffles.

Playing Azul with my significant other at the moment.  We're both enjoying it, its a cracking little casual game that doesn't take very long to play but has enough depth to keep me insterested so it hits the sweet spot between us since she's a very casual gamer were-as I enjoy the more hardcore stuff.

With my gaming group we're currently working our way through Seafall but honestly I'm finding it not that fun and a bit of a chore but I'm kinda locked into it now for another 6 or so play-throughs since it's one of those legacy style games and one of our gaming group is really enjoying it and we don't have the heart to tell him the rest of us think its a bit crap.  Stuff that otherwise regularly sees the table are Descent Second Edition, Eldritch Horror, Small World, Zombicide, and King Of Tokyo.

Azul is great!
Another couple told me they played it, similar dynamic to yours for intensity levels. It plays well 3 or 4 players, too. It's very pretty which makes a great game even more fun to play.
Been playing Card Reader since I made it recently. Overall good reception. 2player 2minute bluffing + strategy game, 18 card game. https://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=66419.0

My favorite for today is Battle Line. Fast, thoughtful, compact and, most importantly, inexpensive. I liked the need for a constant mathematical calculation of the situation - it immediately puts the Battle Line above ordinary card games.

And I also made a list of the best duel board games: https://gametablezone.com/2-player-board-games-2018/
