Looking for good game recommendations for a family of three adults

We used to Yahtzee and play cards as standard family activities for holidays and get-togethers, but they're wearing thin after 20+ years. What's a family of three to four introverts to do? We love each other a lot, but left to our own devices, my mom and I will read while my dad watches TV. Nothing wrong with that, but we'd prefer to interact more when we are together; all three of us share very different political, social, and religious beliefs and have wildly different specialized interests, so once we've talked about how the local baseball team's doing, we're kind of out of things to safely discuss. There's nearly always just three of us, so any game requiring a fourth won't work. Word games aren't good--they frustrate my father (so no Scrabble or the like). Preferred if a game doesn't take 1+ hr to complete; shorter rounds (5-30 min ea.) are ideal. Also best if the rules aren't *too* complicated; my parents get flustered by things like that. I know this is pretty proscriptive, but I have faith in AskMe; hope a daughter out?
