Family game night was a wonderful childhood tradition that I'm glad to carry on with our kids. Given the age differences though, it can be challenging to find games that everyone can play and enjoy.
Our kids enjoy playing clue, especially the "real" Clue. They enjoy Clue Jr. too, but the original version seems to hold more appeal. Perhaps it's all those miniature pieces.
So we finally figured out a solution so my pre-literate daugher can play the "real" version. (Though we remove the violent references from the game -- it's just about guessing what cards are in the envelope.)
