I am interested in board games which can be play through a period of time, e.g. one turn per day. The most typical is chess, there are a few websites including www.chess.com. Then recently I been playing at arimaa.com which is a game similar to chess and has a postal option.

Does anybody knows of any other board game which can be play online and have the same functionality?

People play Diplomacy in that manner. It give you lots of times to contact other people to make deals with them between submitting your moves.
