Games to be played over the internet at the same time?

My husband is away for work for the next few weeks. I'm having a few friends over this afternoon to play boardgames/drink beer. Assuming he can take care of the beer himself, how can we replicate/include him in this afternoon?

We all have iPhones. He has an iPad, and my friend can bring hers. He's got a windows laptop with webcam, and I've got a mac laptop (also with webcam).
We're going to be about 5 people strong. We typically play games like Scrabble, Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne, Monopoly, Dominion. Card games like Gin, Poker, Hearts are good too.
Ideally, this would be something that is actively played in a group. All of the iphone multi-player games I can think of are more like playing chess by mail—take your turn when you get to it. This should be actively played. A game like SpaceTeam would be great, but it requires you all to be on the same WiFi network.
Bonus points if it includes the ability to talk shit to other players, which is a staple of our boardgame+beer times.
