Best Wifi/Multiplayer?

As holiday gifting of iphone and touches is now imminent, I find myself searching through the app store for the best multiplayer/wifi titles available. (must have fun gaming @ family visits!)
I dig Vector Ball, seems like a safe bet for 2-player. And here's hoping I can convince friends to dig into Warfare Inc.

So I dare pose the question - What's your fave(s) for local wifi multiplay?

[sorry if this is a dupe thread, I did search to no avail]

Flick Fishing also does wi-fi local play (as well as hot seat play on a single iPhone).

Just from my own apps:

Asphalt, Real Soccer, Wave Blazer - I've never gotten multiplayer to work.

Ace Tennis - the lag is absolutely unbearable.

Chess With Friends - a great concept and I've had no problems whatsoever, even running it on Edge

Ugh, bad joke. Anyway I think that galcon is a fun multiplayer game because it plays online and with wi-fi. Netsketch is also really fun because you can draw with your friends over wi-fi.

after few updates i really like "Adrenaline Pool Online", spent many many hours with it.
also "Quick Draw" have great concept, but not much people playing it, rooms are always empty.

Uno is a very good game when it works online. I hate the network error problem.
