Ok yáll. I'm a board game novice trying to find a good 3-6 player game to play (besides Catan, Ticket to Ride, Monopoly, and Codenames). Any ideas?
(The more challenging the game, the better)
(But also easy enough to teach myself the basics)

I would love to give you some recommendations. Do you have other games you like that I can base it off of? Just going off of 3-6 player games here are some recommendations:
All of these are great games and can play from 3-6. These games are all in my collection and will hit the table on a regular basis (except maybe eclipse cause it is harder to find the right group). Let us know what you end up going with!

Okay, based on that I have 2 more recommendations for you.
Hope that helps!
I forgot to mention. Lords of Waterdeep: Scoundrels of Skullport, increases the player count from a max of 5 to a max of 6. So that might still be a good option for you.

Yes! Thank you. Currently playing D&D so Lords of Waterdeep sounds awesome.

I had thought of Lords of Waterdeep. It can get a bit slow with 6 players. I suggest you play without the variant for the 'longer' game (one more meeple for everyone).

I'd recommend Dominion 2nd Edition. It's a great game to dive into for any player type but has a lot of strategy and replay-ability.
Some others I'd recommend are

My recommendation would be Scythe. And be sure to check out the Watch It Played How To Play Video; it's fantastic!
Thank you!This game is definitely on my wishlist and will probably be bought soon (:

Jigsaw puzzles are great! I never thought about that as an option, but would be fun.

They are fun and relaxing as you can do however much you want to at any time. As long as you don't need the space you can take weeks to finish it.

My favorite game is 7 Wonders. It scales perfectly from 3-7 players and the play time is virtually the same no matter how many play. It is a bit of a challenge to learn the iconography, but it is so worth it. The game gains a lot of strategy, without much time, by adding the 7 Wonders: Leaders Expansion. Which is the one I would suggest of all of them.
The six player count is harder to get to with most games. Power Grid and Scythe are both good suggestions that were offered that play to that count and are on the more complicated side.
Although all lighter, I would also offer Jamaica, Colt Express, and Dixit, as options. They are all very different from each other, but great games at that player count.
Thank for all the options!7 Wonders is also one I've been wanting to try out.
This is a spot to post asking for recommendations. The more specific with what you're looking for, the better recommendations you can get from other users.
