Best Board Games for iPad?

OK, so I'm looking for some really fun board games for my iPad to play with my buds.

I already have BoardBox, Scrabble, and Strategery.

I know about Carcassonne. Any others?

Tesserae HD

Any oldie from way back but a good puzzle game.

Could use some better sound effects like the original and better end game screens (whether win or lose) but the play is solid.

There is a lite version you can check out for free.

Be on the look out for Catan when that comes out. It was announced recently. I love the Settlers of Catan the board game.

I heard there was a clone of the Hive boardgame but that might have been for the iPhone and I think taken down as it was done without permission? Bummer as I play the Hive board game a lot. It's tile board game, like Carcassonne although more abstract.

The non-HD lite version is now the FULL GAME (just with banner ads).

I like how they use such a clever but simplistic scoring system to track your best results for all 18 possible game variations (total moves taken + tiles left with the lower the number the better).
