Carcassonne is a game that I can't recommend enough for young kids, and adults love to play it too. On each turn you draw a tile and add it to the growing map, getting points for features you build and claim such as roads, farms, cities, churches, etc. Kids can typically learn to play it well quite early, and it has a good dose of strategy to keep them thinking. Out of the many expansion packs available, our favorite is the smallest: "Cult, Siege and Creativity".
