I watched for a community on web, a site where I do new friends or I can play online, where you can communicate and get new friends on the web. And I found: FreeGamingNow.com. I played free games like Final Fortress, Treasure Hunter, a type of Mahjongg, and others. I am indeed amazed and delighted that a site can offer so many possibilities. Log in and you'll see. Do not miss out, everything is free of charge.

Well, does “online game” mean games that you only play online (like in your browser) or does this include games you install on your computer but feature a network play?

If the latter one is the case I can recommend OpenTTD (http://openttd.org/) – and on top of that it’s very children friendly.

Do you mean online board games? There's a ton of those. Seriously hundreds (My husband and I make it our hobby)

/edit/ and I don't mean typical american board games like monopoly/ shuts and ladders/checkers (Hate those types)



http://games.asobrain.com/ -Settlers of Catan is the best introductory board game out there


http://boardspace.net/english/index.shtml -These are all abstract board games that can be a lot of fun, I personally like "Zertz" and "Hive" Simple to learn hard to master

http://www.blokus.com/online-game/ -Blockus is great for children! It's also abstract but easier to learn than most and teaches them to think more! (Depending on their age)



http://flexgames.com/ -these two card games are fun and simple and fast


Those are some of my favs, if you want more just say the word!!! If you need someone to help you learn or to play with a few times just pm me.

I have found Travian (http://www.travian.com) to be really immersive (read: addictive). That's probably not such a good thing for an 8 year-old... and it may move far too slowly for that age. (6 and 8, probably bouncing off walls most of the time!) There are thousands and thousands of people playing Travian on dozens of servers all over the world.

It has inspired me to try my hand at a similar game which has been a really fun project to work on.

You should probably keep your kids away from MMOs such as World of Warcraft... it tends to ruin lives. (No I'm not kidding)

I do have more! But they're not for young kids. Waaaay too much thinking and planning for kids.
Fun for us though.
Seriously, give blockus a try. It's a hit with everyone.
So is Settlers of Catan, you can also find Carcassone on the same site and it's pretty good for kids. Lay down tiles that match (Roads connect to roads, cities to cities ect) earn points for completing your town/road/farm (Sounds kinda boring now that I say it, but my mom loves it, lol) They're family games and even though it's simple it's still difficult (I never win Carcassone, the dragon always eats my people)

I'm a huge Carcassonne fan-- the original table game that is. I've not played it online. The dragon was introduced into the game fairly recently in an expansion pack, and I prefer to play without it. The game in its original form was all but perfect in balance and fun.

There's also Carcassonne Hunters and Gatherers, which is similar but different enough to make it an extremely fun game as well.

The makers of Carcassonne, Rio Grande Games, has an amazing ability to create fun and inventive table games. Try San Juan, Puerto Rico, Lost Cities, Thurn & Taxis, to name a few. Just thought I'd give 'em a little plug :thumbsup:

lol yay!! Another board gamer! I own all those games too! I only found them online because I moved all the way across those country from the people I play with but we still wanted to play together ... aso brain games does a really good job of converting it to an online version. With skype, it's like I never moved!


Edit: You can find an online version of lost cities at flexgames.com
I have an online version of Puerto Rico too ... I love that one! To get started online is a little funky but once you get the hang of it it's really neat!
There's online versions of almost every game I've ever played!

As I said before, if you want to play with someone just pm me XD
