Here are my currently favourite board games:

Smallworld, Shadow Hunters, Dominion, Splendor, Takenoko, TIME STORIES, Once Upon A Time, Saboteur.

I would like to know if you guys can give me another title of board games that can match my 'type' of board game.

I like board games that has 30-60 duration (exception for 'Once Upon A Time' there) and I'm looking for board games with simplicity (reason why I don't put 'Ninja All-Stars' on my list).

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Sorry for bad English. Thank you.

If you liked Takenoko, Tokaido is a similar but distinct game that plays in about 30-60 minutes with gorgeous artwork.

Kingdom Builder and Carcassonne are both different flavors of area control that you might appreciate if you like Smallworld.

I'd also recommend Sushi Go Party, just because it's a great all-rounder game and hasn't fallen flat with anyone I've played it with

You might want to take a look at some of the other Days of Wonder titles (they publish Small World).

I think you might enjoy Ticket to Ride and Five Tribes.

I second Tokaido, Kingdom Builder, Carcassonne, Sushi Go Party!, and Ticket to Ride.

These games also fit your criteria:
Pandemic
7 Wonders or 7 Wonders Duel
King of Tokyo
Dixit
Bohnanza
Lost Cities
Forbidden Island
The Resistance or The Resistance: Avalon

good suggestions here.

just adding Lanterns: The Harvest Festival as being in-line with your list. also TransAmerica is nice to have, plays to 6.

to 'stretch' a little, check out; Kodama: The Tree Spirits , very 'different' type game, and maybe Fresco for a little more 'depth'

I think Castles of Mad King Ludwig or Suburbia would work well.

They are both relatively simple for new people, but can also provide depth once you are familiar with the game. I personally like CoMKL better because it is visually more interesting. However, Suburbia may offer slightly more strategic options. CoMKL is easier to play but it plays best with 3-4. Suburbia works well with 2-4. App versions of both games are available, so you could buy the apps to try it out before you spend a lot on the board games.
