Flash-point is also any amazingly replayable collaborative game.

I've got a still unpunched copy of TR that I bought in the 80s :)

Well, that pretty much answers the question. :D Enjoyed it quite a lot in the 80s and still have a beat up copy. Never any time to play it though.

Enjoying Andean Abyss quite a bit. Made for 4 players but will work very well with 3 or 2. Even a solitaire capability, although I haven't tried it yet. Any love for AH's Third Reich or Advanced Third Reich?

I love the Arkham Horror, apparently Eldritch Horror is very similar, but covers the whole globe rather than just the iconic town and it's neighbouring cult infested areas. Different games every time, but to get the truly "re-playable" aspect, it might be best to almost roleplay the game, rather than just "game" it, if you understand what I'm blathering about.
Another good game is ticket to ride (the original) with the 1812 expansion (extra tickets/game styles), although due to time/space issues I usually just play via the mobile app now - much quicker and cheaper, and can be played solo.

Oh aye, Formula Dé/Formula D is good. It's just had a re-release last year, too. It's decent with three or four, but the more the merrier (it takes up to ten). With a smaller number, it's too easy for someone to just sit in the perfect racing line and win. With larger numbers, it increases the chances that someone innocently ends up in exactly the place you need to get through to go through a bend safely, and you end up blowing a tyre. :)

for one on one games (with a good bottle of Porto and a pack of cigarrettes), my favourite is:
https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/620/we-people (available nowadays as Washington's war)
being a card driven, it has loads of variations from game to game

another good one, also for two players (and this is highly re-playable) is:
https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/210 ... der-europe
but a bit on the rules heavy side

I'm usually not fan of those games will several players, specially if there are long player turns or loads of rules and possibilities, because sooner or later a couple of them tend to wander off and make the game even slower. therefore for lots of players it's best to play several quick and simple games other then a single long one. But if I had to choose a long play game for several players, Formula Dé is always my choice:
https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/173/formula-de
loads of replayablility due to several different tracks and you can always (with a bit of house rules) play a Formula 1 season

I've played it with anywhere from three to five. Works fine at all those numbers, and actually plays differently, too. Liking the show helps with recognising the look and feel, but the guy who actually owned the copy I played hadn't seen the show and it didn't hamper him any. :)

Blood Bowl Team Manager might be worth a look. Again, a bit of familiarity with Blood Bowl (or Warhammer in general) might help to get people interested, but you can pick up the gameplay without it. Plenty of scope for underdog victories there.
