"I'll stick to the pub - far better conversation there"
My group meets in the pub, so we get the best of both worlds - assuming we don't run into any idiots like you, that is.
I'm not really a fan of the games on this list. Game of Thrones strictly needs six, BSG takes way too long for what it is, Saboteur is plain dull and anyone who recommends Munchkin to anyone ought to be shot. My go-to list is:
Kemet - an area control game with all the viciousness of GOT in less than half the time, and it scales. Viticulture - a worker placement game about running a vineyard in Italy. Very smooth, easy for beginners to pick up despite having a fair few elements.
One Night Ultimate Werewolf - a social traitor game that plays in 15 minutes.
Hyperborea - a 4X game where you build an engine by buying cubes that let you perform different actions, angling towards three different victory conditions.
