After recently discovering Quoridor and also enjoying Articulate, Linkee, and having only really played Monopoly and Cluedo before I've recently been looking at other games. I think we are soon to try Risk but it looks a lot to learn. Rhino Hero looks fun and it's cheap enough, but is it primarily for kids, or could adults get a bit of enjoyment out of it too?

For those that don't know Quoridor is a beautifully simple board game. Chessboard style board, making your way to the other side while trying to stop your opponent doing the same; by placing wall pieces to lengthen their route. It's really accessible, and 2-4 player can be quite fun for passing a bit of time.

Never heard of quoridor before, thanks for putting me on to that one.
Rhino hero is marketed at kids but can be played by all without feeling toned down. I've primarily played it with a group at work but thought kids would enjoy it so bought it for home as well.
I think the styling puts people off

The box art just caught my eye when I was away in the Lakes. There's app versions of the game that are slightly different sized boards but give you the gist of it. I tried that first but a physical board is better.

Maybe there needs to be a non-kid version of Rhino Hero. I reckon a Die Hard themed version would suit it judging by the skyscraper looking thing I saw

Haha, that's not a bad idea tbh. It's very like Die Hard but with more Rhinos
I assume this one actually supports equal pay.

Also equal status in the eyes of the law. Rubber duck can be sent to jail too

Check out the link above if you are looking to expand your board game collection. These are all considered 'gateway games' i.e. easy to learn and teach modern board games. (in my opinion) once you've played games of this nature you'll wonder why you ever put up with monopoly (there is a website called boardgamegeek which ranks games based on player reviews and monopoly ranks at over 17,000, i.e. there are 17,000 better games, on that list and is rated at 4.4 out of 10).

Modern board games can get exceptionally complex and make risk look quite simple (again from boardgamegeek ratings it has a complexity of about 2 out of 5). I'd check out small world over risk by the way...

I'd say for me, ticket to ride is the best gateway game as its one that you can come back to again and again (its on the list you provided). I enjoy pandemic but it can be taken over by one person (usually me ) directing everyone. I've not actually played smallworld, keep meaning to but not managed it. I might try and get a play based on your recommendation, thanks

I was given smallworld as a gift. I can see why it's so we'll liked but my general preference are heavier games (brass, great western trail etc.)

Sounds similar to me, know someone with Great Western Trail so really want to give it a go but thematically doesn't appeal for some reason. Viticulture, Scythe, wingspan are my favourites so similar weight I'd say.

Theme isn't very important to me, I've only played scythe of the above. Would like to try viticulture but wingspan doesn't appeal (seems to be on the lighter side of my tastes).

I love viticulture. Wingspan is a solid engine building game, possibly a bit lighter than scythe but not much.
For me, viticulture is the best of the 3 but that might be as played I've scythe a lot and with different groups.
Edit: bgg disagrees 2.37 for wingspan, 3.38 for scythe. Quite a big difference but didn't feel that light to me. Maybe need a few more plays
