Perpetual Commotion and Jungle Speed. Kids aged 9 and 11.

I cannot play Perpetual Commotion - I just don't get the rules! I'm so slow, but I love watching them play together.

We're really into Space Team and Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza (yes, that's the title) these days. They're both fast paced card games that can be played with 3+ players.

Speldor, Rummikub, Ticket to Ride, Labyrinth, Blokus, Sleeping Queens, Picture Charades, Apples to Apples Jr., Pandemic, and Cortex are other popular games on our home. We have a decent selection though so there are plenty more we enjoy, too (Azul, Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne, Takenoko, Robo Rally, Codenames, to name a few...)

When I was a kid we loved to play Blind Man's Bluff in a room. One kid was blindfolded, counted to 10 and said freeze. Then It had to find a kid and guess who it was.

Another thing we like to do was make tents and tunnels, draping blankets over tables and chairs.
Mom didn't like that game so much.

Pretend play using old Purim costumes, our old clothes, any things they find in the house.

They go outside and play hide-and-seek, basketball, soccer, etc. with friends in the park.

They also play board games such as the ones mentioned above (Apples to Apples, Rat-a-Tat-Cat, Bananagrams, Othello, Uno, Taki, Catan, Rummikib, Risk, Concentration matching type games, Pictureka). It varies by age -- some games aren't suitable when there are kids of varying ages/abilities, so those are played mostly with friends from their class.

Go fish
Catan Junior
Manga tiles for hours

I have cleared the shabbos table and played two board games simultaneously with a few kids. It’s not so hard because one is usually with my 11yo, and the other with a preschooler.
We have Foxmind cardholders to make card games playable for small children.

Ages 6-9 here. Lately, lots and lots of Lego including pretend play with the menchies. Other than that, the kind of games others mentioned - we have Ticket to Ride, a bunch of Gamewright games (rat a tat cat, sleeping Queens, etc) Rummikub... But the Lego is what keeps them occupied for hours when it's not outdoor weather.

Monopoly Deal
Blokus
Labyrinth
Q-bitz
Spot it
Risk (when we have patience and time for a long game)
Uno
Set
Tricky fingers
Suspend
Othello

For younger ones

Sorry

Then there's
