Default Family Boardgames

The year end banquet for my company is coming up and each office has a raffle basket to put together with an assigned theme. Our theme is Family Game/Family Fun Night. A few people went in on a tabletop billiard set, someone also brought in a cribbage set and Phase 10 card game, another is bringing in Yahtzee. I made a treasure chest (and it took me MANY hours) for the actual basket, it had to be big enough to fit the box for the billiard table. I have about $12 (money I spent on the materials for the treasure chest, my boss was going to pay me back and I said to use it for something to put in the basket). I want to get a puzzle and a game. Any good classic board game suggestions that don't cost a shitload of money?

I don't think you're gonna find a game less than 12, to be honest.

Uno?

Dominoes is a great idea! Not only is it fun but it teaches numbers too.
