"Features" that work well:
Cheap, these will often be shared with strangers, and I rather not cart around an $80-100 game with tonnes of small and important pieces to trust to people I barely know.


Suitable for groups of players between 2-8. (Ideally want to still play them with smaller groups of friends as well. We can get upwards of 20 people showing up at times, so we're often playing apples to apples or cards against humanity.)

Easy and clear rules. Most people in the group are either university students or recent grads, but some have demonstrated a real knack for being bad with complex rule systems. That, and I rather not spend two hours having everyone learn a game enough to get some strategies in mind.

Games examples that have proven popular:
Cards against Humanity (But trying to find options other than something like this)
Catan (everyone loves Catan)
Carcassonne


Risk and Monopoly are already vetoed by members of the group and are not welcomed. We don't mind long games, but we want to avoid slog-end games where one or two people battle for first place and the rest are stuck trying not to be dead last for hours on end.

His first bullet point nukes Axis out of contention.

I would second munchkins, you should also consider expansions for settlers of ctan, they add quite a bit to the game.
