I really enjoy Risk, but that usually takes up a whole evening and often ends up with someone getting metaphorically fucked in the ass.

Endeavor, Puerto Rico, Citadels, and Pandemic. Pandemic is really frustrating though, because it's a cooperative game, with all the players against the game itself, and the game nearly always wins. Endeavor and Citadels are great when you're cranky and you want to fuck people over.

clue
monopoly - but we dont have a "winner" we always stop the game when the first person goes bankrupt. makes for a different strategy (ie you dont have to win, just survive) but this way it keeps the game short and avoid bitter fights. people cant seem to be lighthearted about monopoly.

Apples to Apples is the best board game ever invented

If you have stamina, Risk is the second best

Dominion is more a card game than a board game, but I second this suggestion

Apples to Apples, Cranium, anything trivia-related (especially Scene It games).

I like Arkham Horror, Scrabble, Quelf, Cranium, Sequence, any card game.... I also play more strategy ones that my husband prefers like Settlers of Catan, Discworld, and Game of Thrones.

There's a Discworld game? As in Terry Pratchett?

Yes! It is strategy based (unless you're Vimes, which imo is the best card to get haha) with cards to draw.

things in a box, hands down. you don't even really need the game itself if you wanna just take the time to make up some phrase cards beforehand

I love this idea. I'd play scrabble, snakes and ladders, trivial pursuit, and monopoly. I've enver played Cluedo but that sounds like fun.

Too many to name... Brass, Indonesia, Wealth of Nations, Through the Ages, Caylus, and Age of Steam are all good heavy games. Small World, Kingsburg, Puerto Rico, Power Grid, Imperial, Agricola, and At the Gates of Loyang are good mid-weight games. 7 Wonders hasn't been mentioned and deserves to be in the mid-light range... it's probably the best game in its weight class in a few years. Niagara is another good medium-light game. Lighter games and party games have been well-covered in other comments, but I'll add Dixit to the list.
