Turn-based RTS

Is there a turn-based RTS that you can play in a wordswithfriends/chesswithfriends manner? Ie. not immediate play, but someone can logon- do their moves-logoff kind of thing.

A Turn-based Real Time Strategy? I think you may be onto something big.

I wonder how a turn-based RTS would work.... would you RTS the wildlife and turn-base the opposing army?

On topic: Strategery is a universal app that allows you to play in a fashion similar to Words With Friends.

I think the kind of game you're looking for is a game with asyncronous (spelling?) multiplayer. Uniwar has that.

I have yet to find a game that could be classified as a TBRTS. It would rule, though, if there was a game that had a turn-based map (like Advance Wars), but when you make an attack, turns into a quick real-time battle (like Galcon).

The only thing I know that is close to tbrts are the total war games. You need to choose which one you want.
