My young children (8yo boy, 6yo girl) seem to like the trivia, "guess the word" type games (contrary to all my attempts to get them to like other games). Could you recommend some that you've had good experiences with?

They like "Smarty Party Junior", but, contrary to its label, it's far from "junior". They can only play about one in five cards in their deck. They also like Thingamajig, but once again, it's too old for them. Apples to Apples is a big hit, but come on, how many times can a dad play it?

Their favorite thing in the world is when I play "Smarty Party" with them, and the card is something like "Cartoons on Nick Jr", and I of course can't name a single one. "Danny Phantom isn't on Nick Jr.!" they'll shout with glee....
