(no subject)

Some of the best German board games playable online, free, with a download or an embedded Java client (the embedded one didn't work for me), at Brettspielwelt. Very nicely done implementations of the games (at least Carcassonne and 6 Nimmt), slightly bemusing metagame, mixed language for maximum confusion. The linked site includes information about language configuration and some of the oddities of the interface, and also rules for most of the games. So now I can stop trying to find someone willing and able to visit to play games, and instead just stay in my hole, hooray!
