If you want something a bit more strategic with a euro feel: Biblios

If you want something a little more chaotic and funny: Welcome to the Dungeon

Nothing against the above guy, but I really really despise Machi Koro.

Deep Sea Adventure is a great one, good with 2-6. $22 on Amazon.
Hey, That's My Fish! is good as well, though slightly fiddly to set up.

Those are our favorites. We also love Carcassonne, though that's a hair over 20, I think.

Welcome to the Dungeon absolutely landed with a wet splat after trying it with different people for me.

Biblios, on the other hand, is a terrific game.

Cockroach Poker can be a lot of bluffing fun if that's your thing to be had for cheap.

Pshh, it's not like you're wearing a "female" badge or anything.

Oh wait... Sorry.

+1 to The Great Heartland Hauling Co.

Lagoon: Land of Druids is great at 2, but a bit too short for my liking at 4, and I've yet to try 3. It's $12 on clearance at Miniature Market now.

Innovation is great at any number, and is $18.50 for the prettier Iello edition or $13 for the drab but more expandable Asmadi edition at MM.

Great fun game.

It just is not nearly as good with 2.

Really best with the most you can get to play.

Castles of Burgundy great with 2-4 players.
I have yet to get my hands on a copy but
The Castles of Burgundy: The Card Game nails what your looking for.

$13.50 at miniature market in stock.
