There is a Dungeons and Dragons type board game that came out not so long ago, but I haven't played it (not Dragon Strike, I'm talking this century). I also haven't played Altar Quest or Warhammer Quest. The Hero Quest Remake won't be out until probably Christmas of 2021.

It's tempting to say just snag a real vintage set (would he appreciate it?) or do what I did and gather a bunch of similar miniatures (I used Reaper Bones) and some printed cards and substitute furniture for a kind of homebrew set (but that will cost you even more than just finding a used one on Ebay).


Anybody else?

I may be a bit out of topic but did you try the western card game "BANG!" ?
It is easy to carry and very funny. I just gifted it to my nephew for his recent birthday and he likes it a lot.
Only problem is that requires 4 players or more to play.

I suggest "Mice and Mystics". Outstanding story, lovely game design and elegant game rules. Can be played from 1 to 4 players.
