Board games are having a revival. Should rename them bored games IMHO.
I've never been a big fan of board games either (not counting tabletop roleplaying). I find them duller than video games !
Y'all aren't playing with the right people!
Back in college, we would sometimes have a game night where we all brought in various board games. One of the most popular ones, strangely enough, was Candy Land! Even that can be extremely fun if everyone's in the right frame of mind. People would start chanting "Plumpy! Plumpy! Plumpy!" if one person was too far ahead!
