Words With Friends-like turn-based, push-y games?

My family and friends have become addicted to Words With Friends. I think the combination of turn-based gaming with push notifications is the key.

So what's next? Are there any other games (besides Chess With Friends) that are doing it this well?

Me too—“asynchronous multiplayer”—Words With Friends made me a fan!

UniWar does it too—it’s a sci-fi strategy “board game,” fairly complex but with in-game guides and tutorials. I haven’t gotten into it as far as I’d like (been playing other games) but it has been fun. You can play through a single-player campaign to learn the ropes.
