What are YOU lookin at?
I like Friday, but I REALLY like Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island solo. The latter just takes wayyyy too long to set up most of the time.
Mice and Mystics - I like this one best with two partially because controlling two mice each is more fun/less downtime, an dbecause I really like the person I play this game with.
King of Tokyo, or Havok & Hijinks
- I don't often play with this many people at once. Mafia and Telestrations are the only ones I can really think of that I enjoy. (I'll play Apples to Apples or CaH, but don't enjoy it.) Machine of Death: The Game of Creative Assassination is another really fun one, but it really depends on the group - if 1 or 2 out of the 6+ players aren't into the storytelling, they have the WORST time, and either keep to themselves and stew about it, or make everyone else have less fun.

The Hedgehog Can Never be Buggered at All
Mage Knight Board Game, only downside is of course the set-up time, but it's also the only game I wánt to play solo. I love it!
Difficult, because I collect a lot of games just for two players. I guess I like Dungeon Lords the most though!
That would still be Mag·Blast (Third Edition)
Goblins, Inc. for sure!
Betrayal at House on the Hill is lovely with five
Twilight Imperium (Third Edition)
Once Upon a Time: The Storytelling Card Game, maybe not really meant for 9, but with some enthusiastic story tellers, it's always fun
An Evening With Bram Stoker's Dracula, well, if you have the right house for it, of course
“Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed.” ― G.K. Chesterton
A Hug a Day keeps the Doctor away!
Ooh awesome lists I think for me it would be (with the dice number being the additional players because well because )
Mosaix - I really enjoy this light game, tetris, pattern making, dice and whiteboards - who needs more
Race for the Galaxy - particularly with 2 as you play 2 cards per turn making more interesting combos possible
Catan: Seafarers - I know many have over played Catan, but I particularly love scenarios like the fog islands where you discover the board as you go, plus seafarers gives you a use for sheep!
Seasons - Huge dice! Plus awesome game, with huge dice. I love how you get to choose the order your cards come in after the draft, adds tactics.
Sentinels of the Multiverse - I love the way each character's deck lends itself to a different play style and how they work together.
Strozzi - Elements of push-your-luck and set collection make this an enjoyable game.
7 Wonders - scales well with player numbers, and great drafting mechanics.
Shadow Hunters - great fun hidden role game, can be slow if you forget the giving people a green card to start with when you have more than 6 rule, but fun and interesting.
The Castle of the Devil - another interesting hidden roles game, with yet another twist of object collection.
Two Rooms and a Boom - noticing a theme with the larger player counts... But this one has rooms... And a timer!
1- I honestly do not like solo games. I'm with Tom Vasel on this one - if I'm playing a game by myself, it's going to be a computer or xbox game. So...The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim or Star Trek Online
2- It's hard to pick just one since almost all of our gaming is 2p - but some of the best: Lewis & Clark, Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game
3- Suburbia, 7 Wonders
4- Cinque Terre, Taboo if you want a party game
5-6- Zombicide shines with its max players.
7-8 I rarely play games with this many people. But some of my favorites for this count are Wits & Wagers, Cards Against Humanity/Apples to Apples depending on the crowd, Beyond Balderdash, or really any party game
9+ pretty much the only game I would play with 9+ is Telephone Pictionary, or if you want it in a box, Telestrations.
Bitter and Acerbic Harridan
I'm never coming up with a 10 player game, but...
Eldritch Horror - enjoy this solo, but it's a total pain to set up
Twilight Struggle - theme is awesome, no two plays are the same
Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization - optimal number for this one, although I also like it with 2p; too long with 4p
Puerto Rico - gotta go with the classic, although Terra Mystica, Automobile, Brass, Navegador, there are so many games that are great with 4p
Belfort - big fan of this one with 5p, also Power Grid
now I'm running out of things, Kings of Air and Steam plays okay with that number because you pick actions simultaneously
And I can't come up with much more other than light party games
What an interesting idea.
1. Legacy: The Testament of Duke de Crecy the solo game is fun and takes a lot of thought to come out ahead
2. Shanghaien love this game and the backwards scoring mechanism
3. Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game I enjoy with 2-5 players, but I think 3 is the sweet spot.
4. Takenoko the sweet spot of board games, I could put 15 games here easily. But this is fun and has great components.
5. Lords of Waterdeep fun worker placement
6. Yggdrasil: Asgard hard co-operative with a great theme
7. Say Anything fun party game that is like a cross of Apples to Apples and Wits & Wagers
8. Shadow Hunters hidden role game with partners. Best with 5-8 players.
9. GiftTRAP cute party game about giving and getting gifts.
10. The Resistance: Avalon fun secret role game with lots of table talk
