Did you know that Meetup is a great platform to discover new games with a handful of people living near you ? Do a quick search on meetup and you'll find one or the other group that is hosting some boardgame nights once a month or so.
I'm not here to do advertising for meetup - but started a meetup group myself a while back in Brussels. We call ourselves the boardgame monkeys and are targeting the english-speaking expat community of Belgium. We realized that there was no association hosting boardgames nights for expats and we just went for it !! You should give it a try too, wherever you are - to participate to the reborn of boardgames as a fun activity between family & friends.
