I've played Finca and its a decent game, but based on the comments you've made about other games that you own... I'm not sure Finca is for you. It's a very simple rules set and feels pretty abstract. For me, it works great to play with my kids because they love the fruit and it is approachable for them.

Also, beware that Ticket to Ride Asia is an expansion map for Ticket to Ride, so you will need to own a base game in order to use the Asia map. You don't show as owning Ticket to Ride so perhaps you should get that (or TtR: Europe) first.

Based on the games you own already, I think some of these are worth a look...
-> Notre Dame
-> El Grande
-> Ra
-> Puerto Rico EDIT: based on your comment above about teaching the family, I've struck PR from the list... same may be true for Notre Dame or El Grande, but ND is definitely more accessible than PR

These are all probably a bit of a step up from what you own now (especially Puerto Rico), but they are all good games. Best of luck!

King of Tokyo since you need it to be family-friendly.

Flash Point: Fire Rescue is an excellent cooperative for the family.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Flash Point - looks to be really promising and I'm excited about it! Second place? Castles of Burgundy...?

You don't say how old your kids are but I'll say we just got Finca and it's a lot of fun. No children here, but it's very easy to teach right out of the box. While rules and play are pretty simple, it's still has enough to it to hold our interest. Scales well, 2-4.

Another game that's even MORE interesting is Airlines Europe. It can be viewed as a gateway game but it is really great fun. Scales well, 2-5.

You need to get your collection up to date so we don't keep giving you games you already have. Sounds, though, like we may have similar tastes so you might want to browse my collection. I have comments on all I've played.

I'm thinking your gang, even the 9 y.o., might like Ra: The Dice Game. It's simple, quick, addictive, set collection, lots of luck though you have to also make smart choices to win. It's the reigning favorite here.

We also like Pergamon which has the best integration of theme of the games I own. You're an archeologist digging for finds and then exhibiting them in a museum.

Or Yspahan which has lots of dice but used differently. Pretty simple, lots of fun.
