Best online game services
Last updated: June 17, 2021
Here's our favorite online game service: Lichess, a free open-source chess server. There are no ads, no surveillance, and no subscription fees, as everything is funded by user donations (just like Good Reports!). See also Why Lichess will always be free (April 22, 2021).
• Board Game Arena: "a community-based website" offering a huge library of online board games, both turn-based and real-time.
• Nethack: a free one-player adventure game, a classic "roguelike" - originally launched in the 1980s and updated by a volunteer dev team for over two decades. Requires some technical skill to set up.
Some individual games
• Sokyokuban, a version of Sokoban (itself the subject of one level in Nethack, listed above) - the Japanese puzzle game of pushing tiles. This one uses a non-Euclidean hyperbolic plane.
