While browsing reddit last week, I came across an interesting board game called Arimaa (http://arimaa.com). It can be played with a chess board but the movement is much simpler and I've found it an easy game to teach.
The online gameroom has a good bot ladder which is great for a personal challenge. I think it'd be good to see lots more average players so I have some more equal competition - most people I see in the lobby are out of my league.
The overall site looks rather bland, but I guess those into the game spend more time playing it than designing shiny web sites.
