    Hello,

    Are you wondering how to downoad for free Scrabble? You can get it for free here: http://bitly.com/1oh8pYs

    Scrabble is a simple remake of the famous word-based board game which has the same gameplay as the actual board game.

    For me, it's the best game ever.

    Many people already have.

    The 'classic' games such as Monopoly, Cluedo, Scrabble etc - alongside traditional games such as Chess and Mah Jongg have all had many conversions.

    If you're referring to 'Euro' style boardgames then there are a few online versions available and even a handful of 'professional' adaptations.

    From my memory, here's some of the games that have been done.

    Monopoly (Various Formats)

    Cluedo (Various Formats)

    Scrabble (Various Formats)

    Chess (Various Formats)

    Mah Jongg - Solitaire (Various Formats)

    Mah Jongg - Competitive (PS2)

    Space Crusade (Amiga, ST, PC)

    Heroquest (Amiga, ST, PC)

    Ticket To Ride (PC)

    Risk (Many Formats)

    Axis and Allies (PC)

    Eurogames Collection (PS2 - Japan)

    It's also worth a visit to this site...

    http://www.the-underdogs.info/collect.php?id=22

    Who host a list of freeware 'adaptations' of a variety of popular games.

    The website http://games.asobrain.com/ also hosts a few online, multiplayer versions of some cool games.

    Also I believe Microsoft have online versions of Settlers of Catan and Carcasonne either in the works or already released.

    So there's plenty of folks working on translating board games. If you have specific games in mind try some of these downloads and see if the programmers are either working on the game or could be amenable.
