You need new friends. No joke. Tabletop gaming and RPG's have been on an upswing for years, and eventually you are going to need a friends group competent enough to play them.

My friends have a lot of experience with resource management and dice/worker placement games so when they are confronted with the "heroic feat" and the "rule of fudge" they just look at me as if to say, you just made this game up.

Then, once they're interested, dump the rulebooks on them, throw a couple of figs at them, then lock them in a room for a couple of hours with no internet or cellular access.
