    Light board games (non legacy though) that have a strong roleplaying element include Tales of the Arabian Nights, Sheriff of Nottingham, Fog of Love, T.I.M.E. Stories.

    There is a game that’s just come out (I haven’t played it) that I think might interest you. It is legacy, narrative and roleplaying driven - The King’s Dilemma:

    And does not look too complicated.
    In the cue! Thank you.

    Additionaly, the group decided on Betrayal Legacy. So I guess we're gonna run 2 legacy games this year!

    Not sure if you know this alternate version of the game, with the D&D theme (non legacy though):

    I bought Watergate this weekend. For fans of Twilight Struggle this is, IMO, a must.

    Watergate is super easy to pick up. It's a less complex and shorter experience than Twilight Struggle, but scratches the same itch.

    That was my experience of Betrayal too.

    Between that and Arkham Horror the Card Game, I've realised I need to avoid any games which rely on narrative/role playing to be fun because I just don't care enough about the narrative.

    I'm a big tabletop role-player, not playing Dungeons and Dragons at the moment but my group recently finished a Tales from the Loop campaign. We're hoping to move on to Things from The Flood later, but for now we're deciding on our next game. It's looking like The Expanse RPG or possibly a new D&D campaign, but they seem to be interested in some of my homebrew games. I don't think they're done cooking yet unfortunately.

    I'm not as big a boardgamer as I'd like to be. I always seem to have a harder time getting people to try single game experiences, so I'm often just left admiring the board design. As is I already have three Kickstarted games that I can't find anyone to play with. At least the minatures are useful for Tabletop RPGs.
    Continuity, even in a "shared" comics universe is often insignificant if not largely detrimental to the quality of a comic.

    Die - Excalibur - New Mutants - Once & Future - Runaways - RWBY - X-Men

    Nobody cares about what you don't like, they barely care about what you do like.
