I think this answers your question, this is info on the upcoming service so once it is out of beta ("scheduled for launch in the holiday 2008 season") then it should be easy for any live member to find and download the community games.
To download the current limited time trial games the are demoing you need to just follow what they said above:
"1) Download XNA Creators Club Game Launcher (Marketplace/Game Store/All Games/XNA Creators Club). Ignore the others.
(Note: If you use "XNA Game Launcher" or "XNA Game Studio Connect", you'll be told you need a Creators Club membership linked to your profile.)
2) Browse to My Games (Games/Games Library/My Games) and twist to XNA Creators Club.
3) Press Y to Download Games
4) Choose a game to download like any other game."
All quoted material from above article. I can see how reading the whole thing it might get confusing.

i still don't get it, dumb question but how do we play xna games? it says "played by any gamer connected to xbox live" meaning people who aren't subscribed to the creators club?..
yup... you just answered your own question...
you can go onto the marketplace right now and download Dishwasher, JellyCar, and LittleGamers, all XNA games.
in the future more games will be available to the XBL public once they've passed peer-review within the creator's club.
