What games I can play with my 8-year-old daughter?

We just gave her an iPod and she just discovered gaming. She loves Mario Kart on the Wii and Cookie Jam on the iPod.

Are there any fun multiplayer games we could play together?

Racing, card games, (easy) word games, action, puzzle?

Turn-based as well as live multiplayer are both good.

Plants vs Zombies my niece loved. 2 player option on the xbox360, but there's maybe a way on the iPod to play it multiplayer. Like take turns or something to complete a level?

Me and my 6-turning-7-year-old play Minecraft every time I come home. She plays on her iPad while I play on my iPhone

Try Doodle Jump, lots of fun and childish graphics.

I recommend this kid-friendly music game Happy Band that I play with my daughter.

I play Ducktails with my girls right before bed each night. With the Steel series controller and an Apple TV it's fantastic! But it is fun on the phone and ipad too.
