Hi Gang,

I don't know that many games, but both of my brothers love board games and Dad loves to play "Risk" and the old "Lords of Conquest" on the computer. Since the brothers are scattered around the US, I thought it might be fun to get the four of us together for a game that we can play on-line. The problem is, I don't know if there are a whole lot of games that meet the criteria:

More or less simple rules (I'm flexible here since my brothers know a lot of games already and I'm ready to learn)
Web-based (to cut down on technical complications from my end)
Turn-based (we live on separate coasts, so it's important that we can play on our own time)
Good interface (so Dad and I can understand it)

I don't know if there is a whole lot on the net that fits. Can anybody make a suggestion for me?

--Matt

Dunno if the games available are up your alley, but google "SpielByWeb", and see if any of the games tickle your fancy. The interface is very, very simple. You can make your own private family session (with a password-ed game).

Wallenstein is on SpielByWeb and would probably appeal to Risk players.

I've been playing with my friends lately, and it sounds like what you're looking for.

If you're into Risk, there is an online game that is based on risk.

Link to Conquer Club online
