Play By Web Update

YouPlay.It: B+

VampiRing, Blue Max, Cartagena, King Me!, Wooden Ships and Iron Men

This site sports several lesser known titles. I have only played Cartagena, and am currently involved in a learning game of Blue Max (pictured above, not my game). The interfaces are very intuitive and nicely graphical. The Game Manager is decent, but falls a little short of the almost perfect MaBiWeb. The only downside that keeps this site from getting an A- is the session-only cookie support. Every time you load the site, you need to login.

Watch your six.

I'll second Jim's comments. I really like their PBEM site, especially the intuitive Cartagena interface, and the "smart" moves that highlight where your pawn will move before you click to finalize a particular action.

I wish they had more games on their site, as I think they'd do a wonderful job with more games featuring similar levels of complexity.

You really need to try 10 player blue max. It's a hoot!
