Not only one of my favorite games, but a good example of how Flash can be used to create real-time multi-player games. It's not Flash Comm server based, it's some other java-based backend, but it's a cool concept.

I talked with one of the creators of the original board game yesterday, and suggested that they release a devkit to the Flash community and then host a contest to create new aliens. He liked the idea, but they have a long way to go to get to that point.

Check it out, but only if you don't have work to do.
