We really like these boardgames:
Scythe. It has mechs but it is no tactical wargame. Expect cold war in this game about area control, worker placement and cool things. Excellent expansions as well.

Isle is Skye is really fun. Between two castles of mad king ludwig. Tapestry (shown with the cat) is a recent addition but first impressions are good.

As for card games we don't have many but Claim is fun. And we just got the crew which according boardgamegeek is top 50 material. Personally not entirely convinced.

Hollow Knight is one of the most frustrating but rewarding games I've ever played, nothing makes me want to smash my controller but keep trying like it

Yes I mad bro

Sorry RDR2 I'll get back to you one day

In which part are you?
Aka which region or boss.

And, yes, the difficult is really awesome in this game.

Well I gave up fighting the Mantis Lords, will get back to that one when powered up a bit better, just beat the boss in Crystal Peak and now backtracking to the Royal Waterways because I beat that Dung Beetle but didn't have the power dash needed to empty the water or something? idk

Once you beat the Mantis Lords you will get a real confidence boost in your own skills that you can beat the game. Loved that fight.

And yes, you'll keep backtracking throughout the game. But all those journeys give you much needed experience and money.

Keep enjoying the experience.
