What about a board where we actually play online or play-by-email games?

There are a lot of games out there, especially the ones that involve no dice rolling, like Diplomacy or 4000 A.D., that could easily be played online over nothing more complicated than a TMP message thread.

Well, why not let's do that? I would love to play Diplomacy or whatever with some of you guys, and it would be a lot more fun than a Yahoo! Group or something similar, just because of the ready-made base of gamers we have here.

It's the kind of thing that should be kept to very simple stuff, IMHO, as trying something like a D&D game would be awfully complex. However, the OP on each thread could set the ground rules (one turn per day, week, or whatever), see who wanted to play, and just hope for the best.

I think this is a great idea, and would be a lot more fun than many of the boards we have now, where the electrons are largely sitting around collecting dust.
