- Should scale well (our group is often 3P, sometimes 2P or 4P)
- Easy to teach, quick to set up
- Have some depth, some tactis or strategy
- Should not be complex, dry, abstract or mathematical


What I have enjoyed so far:

Ticket to ride Europe
Machiavelli
El Grande
Istanbul


What i have not enjoyed:

Carcassonne (too light)
Settlers of Catan (too light)

Thurn & Taxis
Isle of Skye
Ra
Bruges
Notre dame
Taj mahal
Navegador
Hansa Teutonica
In the year of the dragon
Macao

Princes of florence

If you're looking for a quick set up time Le Havre is probably not for you. Mind you, I've only played the app, but I have played Agricola and even with everything sorted that game takes a minute to set up.

Have you tried Splendor? Plenty of strategy and scales really well.

Have not played the above, but would recommend The Castles of Burgundy and Citadels (2016 edition).

Using Power Grid as the barometer for "too heavy":

Thurn & Taxis - meh
Isle of Skye - similar to Carcassonne (but the only game in this list I haven't played)
Ra - Yes! (but you may find it too simple, but it's still great)
Bruges - meh
Notre dame - meh
Taj mahal - Yes
Navegador - Yes (but has strong turn order binding, which I'm not a huge fan of)
Hansa Teutonica - yes!
In the year of the dragon - yes
Macao - meh
Voyages of Marco Polo - Yes (borderline too heavy)
Princes of florence - yes
La città - too heavy
Goa - yes (borderline too heavy)
Bora bora - too heavy
Le Havre - too heavy
Caylus - too heavy

More to check out:
Domaine
Staufer Dynasty
Rheinlander
Mexica
Samurai
Blue Moon City
Dream Factory
Stone Age
Pergamon
Il Vecchio
Fealty
Concordia

I can't vouch for 2p though, as I only ever play strictly 2p games at that number.

La città heavier than princes of florence?


I've heard good things about bruges and macao. What is it that you don't like about it?


Finally, Ra is difficult to find so I might have to skip it.
We like quick and simple games though, full of tension.

We don't like economic games with lots of planning and math.

What about Seeland?

Maybe Sanssouci, Olympos and Vikings or even Santa Cruz
