Have been playing Mage Knight with my daughter who lives in another state. I run the board and we video turns. Has worked great. Lots of fun. Any other game suggestions that would work similarly?

Do you play it co-op or competitive? If co-op, I would imagine Darkest Night or A Touch Of Evil would work too.

People have played entire tournaments of Magic Realm in this way.

Really, any game without great deals of hidden information should work.

You can use Vassal to play Mage Knight. It takes a bit of fiddling to figure everything out, but it works well if you both have computers. I play online, but you can even play by email, sending your saved game back and forth.

The main drawback is that you cannot play with expansions.

There is a phenomenal version of the Vassal module with all expansions included available from its current developer. Shoot him a geekmail to get the file.
