The Spiel des Jahres (Game of the Year) is a great place to start for Family games.
Family games can be enjoyed by everyone! Ages 8 and up will typically be able to play on their own, while smaller children may require help from an adult. Depending on the game you choose, you might be running auctions, negotiating deals, exploring unknown lands, or ruling your own kingdom. You could also choose a game by your favorite theme. There are plenty of great games about pirates, trains, cowboys, racing, and many, many more.
