I was able to grab the domain name: ClassicGamesCon.com . I am interested in having an online game convention focused on classic games launch. I discuss it in this thread:

https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/2474295/article/35446901

Feel free to go there and discuss this further. I would like to get something off the ground in a year or two.

I added Teeko to my port of Lines of Action, to increase the number of games like Lines of Action in it.

You can see it here:
https://tabletopia.com/games/lines-of-action

Teeko is a 4 in a row game, invented by John Scarne. I figured I would add it, because my game Groups is also not just like Lines of Action, but also Teeko.

That is the link. It is a 2 player abstract strategy game that also works as a single player puzzle due to the puzzle-like nature of the classic version. The free placement version feels a bit like Go.
