Online games with friends

This is probably a really dumb question, or at least one that everyone else figured ten years ago, but my Google skills are failing me.
Is there a way to play online classic board or card games (e.g., Scrabble, Monopoly) with friends who are self-quarantined? All the stuff I’ve found allows you to play with random internet strangers, but I need a way to play with specific people.

I used to play Scrabble with a friend over the net. Unfortunately, the Electronic Arts version is no more, and the latest developer has blinged the game up with gems and other crap.

Nice to know the original is still available through pogo.com.

I play Words with Friends with a number of people. Prefer it to Scrabble.

Last night, I tried out https://www.playok.com/. It worked fine. No help to get you started but it didn’t take long for us to figure it out. Mainly, if you create a room, you can kick people out so you can play with just the people you want.

Although there’s also table top simulator on Steam too.

I’m sure the D&D people might have other ideas.
