As a complement to the fine list by Cerebel (see http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listi... for his list), I thought I would do a list of the more easy-paced games, where you log on, take your turn, then wait for the email to tell you to take your next turn. These are great for that quick fix of gaming during the day, for giving that bit more thought to a set-up and just for fun and practice during those times when you are not (supposedly) gaming. They are not for the impatient - often games take several weeks to complete, especially if you have players in different time zones!

The first one is of course here at the Geek, where we can enough the Knizia classic and also Auf Heller und Pfennig, though the majority are definitely playing T&E.

A great implementation and plenty of players out there to play against.

A recent server change from http://puertoricogame.net,
Trond Meistad has created a nice implementation of Puerto Rico and now the site is looked after by Phil Baker. You can play online via browser refresher or at the more leisurely pace and also includes the 2-player version.

There are plenty to play this one too. Play here is free but donations to help keep up the site are appreciated.

Another very nice interface, a very attractive way to play Wallenstein. Also another game called Bus, which I don't know, but the majority play Wallenstein. Again, lots of games going on. Very nice site!

UPDATE: more games available: Amun-Re, Hoity Toity and Reef Encounter. Others are on the way (El Grande and Santiago). One of the best sites around for play-by-web Eurogames.

Little Golem has quite a few games available to play and I am probably misrpresenting it by putting the only game on the site with a luck element. But it was the one that lead me to the site. The majority of games are the classic abstracts: Go (9x9, 13x13 and 19x19), Chess, Reversi/Othello, plus modern ones like Dvonn and several others including Street Soccer. I have been playing there a while now and it is a busy site which runs tournaments and also supports more casual play.

I place this here with some trepidation. It is a workable interface but not playable without owning (or having access to) the cards. This is at the request of Fantasy Flight Games I believe.

Also, no new games are being created right now. There are too many bugs in this beta version and they are having obstacles in getting the new one up. So until the new one is up you cannot play.

The up side is that there are lots of eager players and it is fun. Something to keep an eye on though.

This site is no longer open, but I leave the link in case it re-appears.

Thankfully Vinci is still available at www.ludagora.net
I've heard the interface is not as good as the German one but it is still decent, if you can negociate your way through the French instructions.
