Recommended Games and Puzzles for Children

There are many games and puzzles I've enjoyed playing with my young (3-7 yr. old) children.  These are the ones I would most highly recommend (with a few related recommendations for older children and adults).  I've ordered them alphabetically and highlighted those I consider most essential.  In all cases, I consider these games to have both (1) relative simplicity of rules for child accessibility, and (2) the quality and depth of game play for all ages.
