That you need to leave... unmolested... on a table for weeks between multiple individual sessions. You cannot play those games and be a parent. Kids do not understand they are not to play with daddy's very cool toys.
So I'm out of the loop on what's in print, what's out of print, what's great, etc. I still get to play a little, so I'm not illiterate on the subject, I just don't feel knowledgeable enough to give useful feedback.

This was when there was no crowdfunding, no real broad social interest in complex board games this side of the Atlantic Ocean, very little nostalgia for the 70s or 80s, and Dune was only for grognards because it didn't have any film or TV adaptations that were really durably popular.
Now all but the last of those situations have changed, and with this movie supposed to come out in a couple months maybe that will change too.
