We've had a number of developments since my last comment:
- The creation of a Google+ Hangout Application version (so you don't need to run your own web server) - Please go to www.anywhereboardgames.com to kick-off a hangout with ABG
- End-user documentation written by Edward Grzetich
- Adding a context menu to view the end-user documentation

Why review my own software? To be fair and open. Right now (as of 2/29/2012) ABG takes a bit of technical knowledge to install (the Windows installer provides Apache and PHP, but you have configure your firewall to get multiple players going) and once up takes a bit of leg work (gathering and importing images from the web) to get your own game going. However, I was able to get a good game of Settlers of Catan in and a bunch of games of the Pokemon TCG starter set with my 8 year old. So I achieved my initial goal: to be able to remotely play games with my father who lives pretty far away. I hope to continue to expand the project to make it more useful for the general public.
