Highly amusing pair of articles about a shysterpreneur: here and here.
His resume is great, jumping from bankruptcy to bankruptcy, burning through capital faster than anyone could think possible. Why would anyone continue to trust this guy with more than $10 for picking up the pizza (and then, only if he had a GPS wristlocked to him)?

BrettspielWelt - Lots of famous online games. Hit the English flag, then hit Help, and Start Here. I haven't figured out much, but it looks pretty interesting. Here is a more coherent help page.
Other places: 3D Setters of Catan, Cosmic Encounter online (the horror, the horror), and Tigris & Euphrates online.
Educational Innovations - lots of cool semi-educational toys and demonstrations. A place for all your dunking bird and energy ball needs.
Cute little word game for the day, for the kids (though it'll teach them words I've never heard of), and actually tough for adults, too: Dungeon Scroll. First 6 levels are free. Clever idea, and there's some strategy to it: you save your special "spell" letters for nastier monsters if you can, you keep your small words around to finish off monsters efficiently, etc. For $8 for the full game, it's pretty darn cheap.
