Asynchronous multiplayer games?

Don't know if it's been touched on, but does anybody have suggestions on good asynchronous multiplayer games? Those are multiplayer games in which both players don't need to be online at the same time. Looking for things maybe boardgame or card game based, but anything will do. The only examples I can come up with are Scrabble and Chess with Friends.

Hmm... Topple 2? But you either hate the game, or reallly love it.

Asynchronous play works by sending challenges on how high you've managed to achieve.

Then again, I think many ngmoco games have this challenge mechanic. Star Defense and WordFu has it too I think.

uniwar? im not sure what asynchronous but in uniwar you do your turn and then you get to wait for the other person to make their move, even if they are offline so that when they get back online they can make their move. this means that you can play up to 20 games at a time, but it also means that a single match can take days.

again, not clearly sure what you mean by asychronous

Zombie Pub Crawl has it.

Also my game (when Apple decides to approve it) will have. See my signature.
