Diplomacy IMHO it is very easy to pick up - so easy that I almost posted it to your other thread... After all, the main round of play in Diplomacy relies on human skills of interaction and negotiation - rather than any special board game strategy knowledge. The rules are very simple at a base level and have little 'special' extensions or gotchas. It also has no dice and a relatively limited set of pieces. I would agree with avoiding Axis & AlliesThe 30mins+ it takes to set up would switch most people off, even before you get into the convoluted turn process and thick rule book.

Your title is deceptive, if it doesn't have to handle e-mail, aren't you just looking for a web-client?
