Perhaps you could do your own censoring of it if you went that route?
Yeah, my kids laugh at me and tell their friends that I have banned Cards Against Humanity from being played at our house.

Lots of great ones have already been said. Some more we love are
• Dixit
• Pandemic
• Carcassonne
• Alhambra

If you want to see some games played before deciding, Wil Wheaton does a you tube series called Table Top where he shows the game set up and then plays with 3-4 friends. It is fun to watch, and a good, free way to get a better understanding of a game.

Also, some game stores have a game shelf where you can play the game there in the store to try it first. If this is not a gift. I would recommend involving the teens in researching them in either of these ways. Lots of really great games out there now.

Five Crowns is a fun game, my kids are very competitive with it.

Our new favorite game is Cards Against Humanity. It takes all the awesome parts of Apples to Apples and gets rid of the rest.

Our kids love playing Quelf. It can get very silly and somewhat loud but I think that's what makes it fun. There are also many card games that they love: Munchkin (and any of the expansion sets), Nuts, Fluxx (any of them, the Original, Space Fluxx, Zombie Fluxx, Oz Fluxx, I think there are more), and Anomia are a few that I can think of.

ETA: Just remembered one more. The Game of Things has been pretty popular.

Trivial Pursuit is a classic, and my 16 year old brother and I (17) love playing it with our family. I'll also say that Euchre is a great game as well, or its solo counterpart, Dirty Clubs (not a dirty game).

Definitely Cranium! I love how fast it moves, and the various categories and tasks keep things interesting.

A lot of my friends really enjoy Settlers of Catan - I'm not patient enough personally :D

We had a party and all of the young ones, from the 7 year old to the 22 year old, loved this game!

Another vote for Phase 10

Here's another vote for Phase 10 and my teen son loves it! You can pick up the Phase 10 cards at Walmart Supercenter.
