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?

Trivial Pursuit

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....

Bonanza - (nothing to do with the tv show)

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.

+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. :-)
