Good family game/boardgame
 
Heading to some relatives for Christmas and want to bring a cool board-game for them. Younger couple (mid 40's), two daughters roughly 10 and 14.
Any ideas?

Classics:

Trivial Pursuit
Pictionary
Risk
Scrabble
Parceesi

My family used to get pretty serious about the Pictionary and Trivial Pursuit battles over the holidays.

Settlers of Catan - You can thank me later.

The following are card games, but nothing like a standard deck of cards type games....

Dominion
Bonanza - (nothing to do with the tv show)

Rummicub. Not sure about the ages but its pretty easy to play and tons of fun.

Perudo-The ganme of Peruvian liar dice, great game
Mexican Train, really great game
Balderdash-really funny.

these are a little more fun than your classic board games, all easy to learn. Can be use as drinking games as well for the adults.

Apples to Apples is our favorite. Plays 2-10 people. You cant stop laughing.

Ticket to Ride games are fun with the kids and adults. You cant go wrong wth either one

I am not much of a board game person... but settlers is great. I suck at this game and its still entertaining.

+1 for Settlers of Catan
A2A is also fun, but we end up just making up our own categories

The Monopoly card game was a hit last year during the holidays for us. Really entertaining and it only takes about 15 minutes a game... not the 3 to 4 hours the board game used to take us. :-)

My family loves playing Quiddler. The kids get into too.

Cranium, my family like any of the Cranium style games.

I like "Things"

25 words or less is a fun game. Teams bid on words needed to get your team to guess 5 words.
