We have played 7 Wonders, Ticket To Ride, Dominion, Resistance: Avalon and King of Tokyo and have enjoyed all of them.

It would help if it can play 2-6 or even 7. Time constraint is 45 minutes to 1 hour per game - lots of short attention spans in the group. If you think of a must-play that lasts over an hour, you'll have to persuade me why it is so awesome.

Thanks in advance. You people are awesome.

Since your group already knows and likes TtR, consider getting Ticket to Ride Map Collection: Volume 1 – Team Asia & Legendary Asia, the team variant plays 6 and is one of my favorite ways to play TtR.

Some other games:

Survive: Escape from Atlantis! (+Survive: Escape from Atlantis! 5-6 Player Mini Expansion)

One Night Ultimate Werewolf

King of New York

Forbidden Desert

Alhambra

Memoir '44 (+Memoir '44: Operation Overlord)

Though I wouldn't play it with more than 4, I can't not reccomend my favorite game, Alien Frontiers. Though I prefer the long game, you can tailor the game how you want by setting the number of colonies required for the end game. (6 colonies makes for about an hour long game with experienced players, your first few games will be on the longer side as you learn various strategies.)

A final suggestion, my group has found that it is generally better to split into 2 or more groups when 6 or more people show up for a game night, best of luck!

I wonder if the group has a short attention span, do you really need more games? If you buy more games, then that is more rules to learn. Why not just play the games you have so you don't have to teach more rules and so that your group gets better at the games you own? You'll also save money.

Las Vegas + (highly recommended) expansion Las Vegas Boulevard

It has some interesting decisions each turn, which involve risk assesment and 'push your luck' (as you would be familiar with from King of Tokyo) and area control (like Ticket to Ride). The best thing though, is that with the expansion, you actually get something like 10 (don't remember the exact number) different expansions that you can add or remove from the game as you like. This gives the game a lot of variabillity (like Dominion).

You should check it out

I mostly just want to add games with new mechanics to the list. I don't think we'll add more than 2 more games, but with just a slightly larger variety of games I think the crew will be more willing to play more often

Dixit, though I'd personally go with Dixit Odyssey, will fit your criteria quite nicely. It has completely different mechanics to your other games, will play up to 12 players quite neatly though I find it works very well with 5-8 and plays in 30-45 minutes.
