We liked the Exit escape room games made by Kosmos. We just did Dead Man on Orient Express. It was pretty challenging and was also able to do it without any writing and cutting so did it on Shabbos. It's a little challenging without using a pencil but definitely doable. I just bought 3 more from Target this week, they have a buy 2 get 1 free.

Any game, just add drinking element. (Your choice of potato vodka, cognac, or wine)

Some other good games are, of course, settlers of catan which is a lot of fun especially since the board isn't the same every time (even though it was mentioned before, it deserves another). Operation F.A.U.S.T, although you can get sick of it very quick, the idea of the game is good. If your'e wordy than bananagrams is fun, and each game is not too long. Codenames pictures is also very good. Scotland yard is very fun but part of the game includes a bit of writing even though its not really necassary. And rummikub, scrabble, and parchessi, they are classics but still enjoyable, and more relaxed.

Monopoly.  All ages can play at once.
Guess Who. Younger kids
Spot It. Younger kids
Ticket to Ride. Older kids and adults
Settlers of a  Catan. Adults. Can get competitive.
Phase 10. All ages can play together. A card game where it varies collecting “runs” and “sets” of numbers.
