So can we get a game going?

Would anyone care to learn a new game (to them and myself) and have a little competition?

same style as Catan?
Can it be played on mobile?
120 characters? Hmm, I wonder what I could write with 64 characters. Boy, it's gonna be hard to use up 15 characters. W-

If I had a specific game in mind, I'd have posted it for examination.
Do you want it to be Catan-style and how would you define that?

(Several board-gaming sites support mobile play.)

Codenames is available to play online. (It's free at the moment; this will almost certainly change eventually.)

https://codenames.game/

If you're not familiar with it, here's a brief overview:
One player on each of 2 teams knows which words in a 5x5 grid belong to each team and they must communicate them
to their teammates with one-word clues. The teams take turns receiving a clue and guessing (often multiple times).
The first team to guess all their cards wins, but there's also an Assassin card which is an instant loss if guessed.

Recommended for 2 teams of 3 or 4 each (though 2 works, and I suppose 5 could as well).

yes

Okay, then. (Maybe I should've been more specific with my question, though.)

Did you have a specific game in mind? Are you willing to learn a new game?
(What method did you have in mind? I was thinking uploading pictures of the board.)

Guidelines for candidates for to-some-extent-asynchronous play-by-forum games to be handled by
a single party would seem to be discrete turns (players never take any action on other players' turns),
no private hands of cards, and no need for communication.
(Also, the fewer players, the better, though that's not going to matter for the moment.)
