This is following from the Boardgames idea, but there are an awful lot of computer games out there that are multiplayer friendly. There's the massive ones, like Everquest or Worlds of Warcraft, and there are much more localized ones, like Neverwinter Nights (role playing) or the venrable Worms serries (blow each other up with sheep!). There's a microsoft space flying/shooting simulation called Allegiance that's offered free to the public, but I'd need to google it for more info. With the prevelance of broadband and free or commonly available games, I think we could easily have some more game groups spring up out of this as well. Now, the only problem that comes to mind is that Buzzfloyd and I share an internet connection, and that includes the IP address. If I host a game of Neverwinter Nights, she can't see me to join. We hope to fix that with some more network cards and a length of cable, but I dunno if that would work for letting us both connect to other people at the same time, unless one of us hosts it. So, this could be a situation where it'd only work for smaller scale situations, or persistant servers that would allow simultaneous log-ons. We'll look at that when the time comes! For now, who's interested, and what games would you suggest?
