My 7yo has been asking us to teach her chess, and as it turns out theres a bunch of beginner games you can play with it which DH knows. Suicide chess is the favourite and as a non chess player myself I'm really enjoying it too.

We have a lot of these games too.

One that hasn't been mentioned that DS10 loves is Labyrinth by Ravensburger. And it's my favourite kids game too.

Also Tokaido. We now have both expansion packs and it's great. It promotes enjoying experiences rather than 'winning'. If you rush ahead, you have to wait for the others. If you are last place on the board each turn, you have the next go first.
Totally different mindset, very Japanese. (awesome game all around!)

DS also love to play the card game pokemon.

Pictionary is always fun and we love to play Trivial Pursuit as a family, we play in teams with DH and I on a team with each child.

This will depend a little on your kids and also their options for who they can play with. If they're playing with younger siblings, some of the strategy games might be too hard. Cooperative games can be good for that though.

My kids are 8 and 12. They love Cluedo and Monopoly but also:
Ticket to Ride
Bohnanza (card based)
Castle Panic (Cooperative)
Forbidden Island (Cooperative)
Sushi Go (card based)
Pandemic (Cooperative, but I think later versions aren't)
Apples to Apples
Codenames (requires a lot of word knowledge)
Secret Hitler (requires the ability to lie well)

I suggest Catan, Carcassonne, Dragonwood or Azul if you want a non cooperative game. If you want cooperative, Pandemic or Forbidden Island. I also really love both Sushi Go and Bohnanza.
