We have a large family, and need games that can handle at least 6 or more people. We LOVE Camel UP, Citadels and 7 wonders. Are there any more great strategy games that handle 6 or more people, and take about an hour to play?

Bohnanza certainly in your timeframe
VivaJava: The Coffee Game may take a little longer
Ca$h 'n Guns (Second Edition) plays quickly
Ricochet Robots good puzzle
All pretty good games

Plays 6:
Ticket to Ride Map Collection: Volume 1 – Team Asia & Legendary Asia: Team Asia map does 6 players.
Team Play: Don't be fooled by the lame name.
Ethnos: Plays quickly, even at 6.
Euphoria: Build a Better Dystopia: Worker placement. Will likely run closer to 90 min with 6 players though.

Plays 7+:
Between Two Cities: Can play up to 7; feels collaborative, but there is only one winner.
Steampunk Rally: Racing/drafting game up to 8 players.

The Resistance supports quite a few players. We've played that a few times with a local group.

I like TransAmerica in this spot. Just played it with 6 people a few days ago in fact. It’s only up to 6 though.

Also Deception: Murder in Hong Kong. I liked it a lot with 8 players.

Antike II (closer to 2 hours)
Quartermaster General
Space Cadets (a but too fiddly and long for my taste)
Caverna
Eldritch Horror

These are all a bit more complicated and longer than you probably want. But they do accommodate 6 or more.

Fische Fluppen Frikadellen takes up to 15 if you have the right combination of games.

The really unique feature of Fische Fluppen Frikadellen is that there are three different versions of the game, so it can be played by up to 15 people on three different, interconnected tables! You'll need one copy of the game for every five players.
