technically but giving clues won't be nearly as savvy as some adults

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.

It's called the Dominion the base game. 2nd edition
http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/index.php/Dominion_(Base_Set)
search amazon for Rio-Grande-Games-Dominion-2nd
sometimes it's on sale, but not today  :(
extensions are great but I would just start with the base game.
