Nice - now I can play a game of chess that takes three months to complete! Crazy concept, but I'll give it a shot.

Another that is not available in Australia

Another app that is not available in the Australian store.

They must be basing their company model on EA's!

There are many turn based games on the web although most use java so it's unplayable on the iphone. http://www.spielbyweb.com/ is only one I know of that I was even able to play them on my nintendo DS since their games are written in php. I used to be heaving into Tikal, Santiago, Hoity Toity and Hacienda but after 431 games I grew outta it. Haven't logged in almost 2 years. http://www.mabiweb.com/ would also work hope they bring Samurai to iphone as they did for the pc/mac.

I'm glad chess for friends is expanding this turn-based playing for the iphone.
