Free On-Line CCG's

Found a site called CCG Workshop that offers free on-line versions of older CCGs (and some board games).

Here's the List of Games, but highlights include Mythos, ShadowFist, Babylon 5, Rage, Vampire: TES, and soon to be coming, my all-time favorite, Heresy!!!!!

I haven't had a chance to really test it out, but I did notice that the interface needs some major work, not all cards have the art scanned, and the lobby seems sparse (but it is past midnight on a worknight). On the plus side, though it says you have to pay for access to some games, all of the ones I saw* were free. Check it out!

This may make me do a 180 on the 360...

Somewhat old news, but just found out about it: German Board Games to appear on Xbox Live Arcade.

Xbox Live Arcade is also set to introduce the electronic versions of three of the top board games from Germany. “Settlers of Catan™,” “Carcassonne™” and “Alhambra™” are sure to be popular across continents.

• “Settlers of Catan.” This stunning take on one of the best-known board games around the globe will offer the whole family a chance to establish settlements on the island of Catan. [Released in May 2007]

• “Carcassonne.” Designed for two to five players, “Carcassonne” is set in a medieval landscape made up of 72 tiles. Players start from a single tile and then draw from a pool of remaining tiles to create a growing landscape and gain points for ultimate victory. [To be Released in June 2007]

• “Alhambra.” Expanded from the popular stock-market-themed game “Stimmt So!,” “Alhambra” provides an Arabian theme to the card-based game where players score points by drawing currency cards and building tiles to place next to their Alhambra.
Also found here that Puerto Rico & (as previously reported) Talisman will be added.
