I bought Runebound last year, and it has done a great job in providing me and my friends with a lightweight way of playing a "roleplaying game". (yeah, ummm ... in this case, it's closer to roll-playing). But it's a great game to bring out with friends where there is really no expectation or desire to play a multi-session roleplaying campaign.
My kudos to the game designers for 2nd edition.
Now I'm wondering if there are other "RPG-lightweight" games out there.
I've already started looking at dungeon-crawls like Doom and Descent -- although it seems those have not enjoyed as much popularity as Runebound ... and haven't really gone deep in terms of expansions.
I've also bought a little bit of the A Game of Thrones LCG, which is a pretty nifty way of "roleplaying" entire kingdoms without turning the game into an accounting "count-the-cubes" game.
Do you guys have other recommendations?
