A few thoughts:

a) Board Game Geek is the best resource for games, try an advanced search on there

b) if you love games and your family hates them, why not play with other people instead? There are lots of board game clubs all over the country. 

c) a few suggestions for games (look these up on BGG):


King Of Tokyo

Ticket To Ride

Settlers Of Catan

The Resistance: Avalon

Kakerlaken Poker

I've run the same parkrun every Saturday for the last 23 weeks (except for the week it was cancelled). The appeal is free t-shirts (got my 50 a while ago, close to 100 now) and trying to win the annual points competition.

Once the points competition ends I'll probably go back to my previous regime of doing a parkrun every other week and trying out different ones. I've done most of the ones in Hampshire, so it would be good to tick the last few off.

My personal pet hate on here is when people ask a question and mention their weight, but not their height. Or the time they're aiming for without saying what their current PB is.
