I want to get a present for my friend who likes the following games:
-Puerto Rico (He owns it)
-Anthromorpork (does not own it but has a chance to play it often)
-Ticket to Ride series (I own all but Nederlands and Africa myself, and paly them with him, his favorite one is India)
-Citadels(He owns it and likes it, though it's a bit too casual for him)
-Pandemic (He owns it, but does not have expansion)
-Forbidden Island (He owns it, not sure if he has an expansion for it)
-Resistance (He just bought it, not sure how he feels about it)

Recommendations, please?

Suburbia might be a good pick, it's about the same length and complexity as some of the other games he likes but is different from the others enough that it shouldn't overlap and is not only in print but has an expansion coming out this week or so.

Hands down the expansions for Pandemic. It has been called the most essential expansion in board gaming.

+1 for Race for the Galaxy, Suburbia, Agricola, and Castles of Burgundy

Trajan - Really fun game similar in style to a lot of the ones you mentioned. It's a bit more of a step up from Castles of Burgundy, but I find it more enjoyable.

Libertalia - Haven't played this myself, but it's supposedly a much better version of Citadels.

Defenders of the Realm - I prefer this to Pandemic, and actually think it's more difficult. It's pretty different from the ones you've mentioned, but I think it's similar enough to Pandemic that he would enjoy both games.
