As a Facebook user, I'm always getting pinged with requests for Farmville, Mob Wars or Angry Birds. My question is, are there any boardgames implemented on Facebook that I would WANT to play?

I found a few listed that sounded interesting.

Have any of you tried them out?
How is the implementation?
How different is it from the original?
What other boardgames are on Facebook that I have overlooked?

Is this an implementation of the Battle of the Sexes game we know and love/avoid? Or something else altogether?

About 50,000 play chess monthly on Facebook with this implementation. There appear to be many others. Which do you prefer?

Diplomacy has been destroying friendships since 1959. Facebook has been destroying friendships since 2004. What havoc could Diplomacy ON Facebook do? Thankfully only 500 players per month are sampling this cocktail of social destruction.

Are you one of them? Tell us about it!

800 Facebook users a month play online Dominion.

The implementation is pretty good, although you have to make a purchase to create a game using anything other than the base set. You can join a game that others have created though without making any purchases, though.

Here's the link

This is titled "Ticket to Ride Europe Pocket"

Does it play differently than the boardgame? Does one of its 300 monthly users care to chime in with some info?
