Online board games to play with faraway friends.

After geeking out about board games with some distant friends on Twitter, we came to a decision that we would like to play one together upon occasion using our computers. But there are a few problems with that. Snowflakes inside!

Out of all of us, I seem to have more board game experience, mostly Eurogames like Settlers of Catan, etc. One friend in Wales likes Dominion, one friend in London likes Cheapass games, and the friend in Boston has only ever played CAH and Apples to Apples.
So ideally I'd like to find a game that:
* is fun for all levels and doesn't have too much of a steep learning curve
* can be played online
* preferably free
* and is compatible with Chromebook for the Boston player
I'm being told you can't really create a private online game for four players, but maybe some of you out there can help me figure out what we can play. Hope me, Hivemind!
