Default Awesome multiplayer iOS games for long-distance relationships

So the girlfriend and I are about to do long-distance. We both have an iPhone 5 and she's got an iPad. What awesome iOS games are out there that have support for online multiplayer?

I'll take any suggestions I can get, from the simple stuff (word games, card games, board games, etc.) to the more active stuff (platformers, side scrollers, etc.). Anything co-op would definitely be a plus, but certainly isn't required.

Thanks.

Well, as much as I hate to mention anything by Zynga because in other areas they're greedy whores, Words with Friends and Hanging with Friends are fun games for to play with a friend. Particularly good for girlfriends/wives who aren't into video games.

Haha, good point. My significant other isn't quite that casual of a gamer, but something like a first person shooter might be overdoing it.

I just downloaded Oh My Heroes! which seems like a great option, but I don't see a way to play online with a specific friend, just random people. :/

Good point. Your best bet is to do what awp69 said. Playing these type of games would help stay in touch and you chat right on them also. Zynga hasn't (as of yet) made these games totally unplayable without buying in app purchases.

The games by Zynga are nice, but a lot of them aren't live co-op (more like my turn, your turn, repeat). But I like a few of them.

D some more research and just tried out Mighty Wardens. Very fun hack 'n slash (which translates to easy for the lady friend). In addition, it has in-game chat. How awesome is that for doing long-distance?

Really liking this one.

Two great two player games are tabletop racing and osmos for couples. Try them out.

Outwitters for sure. There's 1v1 and 2v2 so you can be on a team. Both options have text chat. Plus, it's a blast, and free.

Triviados is a good option, its screams casual, its free, no IAP, and has a chat.

Your best options for long distance are gonna be plentyoffish.com and okcupid.com. Both those games can be fun. Altho she won't need those to play...
