These other geeklists are directories of sites which have
multiple online games.

The intent of this list is to help you decide which game sites might
be worth the trouble of investigating further, based on the types of
games and the type of interface.

I will periodically re-order this list according to the number of thumbs-up the individual items receive, so the the best sites are rated highest.

Guidelines: The accompanying image should be a representative screen shot if you can find one. The sites should be good enough that you actually play there.

Gametable Online has a mixture of 2 player abstracts and multiplayer games. Most of the games seem to have some commercial tie-in, but there is no overt commerciality on the site.

Interface: Java
Style: Real Time, against human opponents.
Cost: Some games are free. Small one-time payments to play newer games.
Ads: No

ZunTzu isn't a site, it's a game platform for online play, where you use a virtual gamebox to play. There's no enforcement of game rules, but live audio and video are supported. In principle, it's the closest thing to being there, warts and all.

Interface: Firefox or IE plugin
Style: Real time, with audio/video
Cost: Free
Ads: No

Battlegrounds isn't a website, it's a game platform for online (peer-to-peer) or offline play, using a "digital conversion" or Game Box to play a specific game (it's easy to make your own game conversions, too). The software does not enforce game rules, but many common game mechanics and dice-rolling mechanics are supported.

Battlegrounds virtual tabletop software comes in two flavors:

1) Battlegrounds: RPG Edition (aka BRPG) began as a tool for playing any pen-and-paper RPG online, but has gradually evolved to also support playing many wargames, boardgames, card games, and dice games.

2) Battlegrounds Gaming Engine (aka BGE) is specifically intended/tailored for playing many wargames, boardgames, card games, and dice games.

Neither BRPG nor BGE have an AI opponent. Digital game conversions (i.e., "modules") for BRPG and BGE are cross-compatible.

Interface: Downloaded cross-platform application (Windows or Mac OS X)
Style: Real time, with 1-16 players
Cost (for BRPG): $29 for GM Client (needed for hosting games), $15 for Player Client or Floating License, free Demo available
Cost (for BGE): Ranges from $15 (for a Gamer Client with 1 free Player Slot) to $40 (for a Gamer Client with 15 free Player Slots)
Ads: No
