I highly recommend CHAOSMOS

The Universe is ending. Whichever race is holding the Ovoid when the old Universe ends is able to continue onward in the newly born Universe. You are the hero of your species and while the mechanics are easy, holding onto the Ovoid is quite difficult and requires great cunning.

Wow, looks interesting! Is it simple though?

+1 for Dixit. It is our game to go when we have big gatherings, eat like pigs, drink and get stoned, and then we play this game of intense deduction and creativity - enjoying it even more.

There is another game called "Mysterium" which is basically a cross between Dixit and Clue. It looks exciting but, of course, I bought it right on the eve of the Covid pandemic...

Tokaido is a pretty fun game and it's relatively simple.  There are both physical versions and video game versions of it.

The basic premise is that you are on a pilgrimage and trying to have the most fulfilling experience along the way.  There are no dice to roll.  It's more strategy based with every character having a special unique bonus and locations limiting the total number of players that can be on it at a time. Once you pass a spot you can't go back.  Their are reasons to speed ahead of everyone (limited quantities of things or bonuses for being 1st) and reasons to lag behind (last person in line is the active player and can take any number of turns until they aren't last anymore).

Once everyone reaches the end of the trail you total up points based on the accumulated experiences and highest total wins.  A typical game lasts about an hour.

There are a few expansions that add new/more experiences or a couple new rules, but the base game is playable as is and you could get hours and hours of play w/o ever adding the expansions.

Horrified is pretty simple (but not easy), and quite thematic for Halloween too.
