For sake of having to, lets say games can be categorized into two groups fun and thinking. Fun being defined as, you're just going through some motions and enjoying yourself without worrying about long term strategy too much. "Quick wins" is my idea here, there's no more than a couple minutes between personal celebrations. I need some more entertaining games! Lets hear some suggestions! Nothing too light, we love the hour mark +

Btw, I love all of my games almost equally and highly recommend any on my list.

FUN
King of Tokyo
Betrayal at house on the hill
Castles of mad king ludwig
Carcassonne
Ticket to ride: Europe
Love letter
Stone age

THINKING
Pandemic legacy
Caverna
Five tribes
Dead of winter
Scythe
Splendor
Lords of waterdeep
Codenames

Re: FUN games for 3-4
Labyrinth should be playable for someone aged 3-4, and my wife certainly thinks it's fun! (It's definitely more Carcassonne than Pandemic, that's for sure.)

Edit: Aww, OP edited to clarify what "for 3-4" meant...

Hahah, I know. Turns out Labyrinth is good for 3-4 players, too. It's an adult game, not a kids game, but pretty light/simple.

Re: FUN games for 3-4 players
I've only played the iOS version, but Can't Stop is a streamlined push-your-luck game, which of course, produces some fun moments of excitement when people, uh, push their luck.

"I'm going to roll one more time... okay, one more time... just one more... OHHHH!!!!"

When we're headed out for beers, our go-to game is Skull, which is a streamlined bluffing game.

"Flower... flowerr... flowerrr... SKULL!!!!!"

And lastly, I have a ton of fun playing Pictomania. It is a brilliantly designed drawing game, in my opinion. There is tension between wanting to draw accurately so that others can guess your drawing, but you are simultaneously trying to guess what other people are drawing! And, there are some great 'hard cards' of abstract concepts that are fun to attempt.

Meuterer

Small deck of cards. Only came out in Germany but can still be gotten. There is very little wording and there are English versions of the rules on here.

Re: RECOMMEND fun games for 3-4 players
I'm making my way through the playthroughs of each of these! Thanks everyone so far, if anyone has more ideas that would help too!!

We're all in our late twenties, if a game is too simple, I could totally see us only playing it once or twice. Definitely looking for something with at least 4-5 plays per game Edit: (per year).

Love yall <3

Defenders of the Realm is a little longer than your one hour sweet spot, but the amount of fun easily carries you through the length.

4-5 plays per game? like for the life of the board game or per game session? Man i hope you don't only play your games 4-5 times! LoL

How about Sushi Go or Sushi Go Party!? One Night Ultimate Werewolf perhaps?
