What games can I play with my geographically- and temporally-dispersed friends?

Gaming has always been one of the central components of my friendship with some of my oldest friends - but we've become scattered across space and time lately, and it makes coordinating gaming time hard. What awesome games can accommodate non-simultaneous play?
The only turn-based game we've ever played as a group was Axis & Allies, but we definitely like strategy. I personally would prefer something that encourages communication among players - diplomacy, scheming, and backstabbing would be excellent.
I know Civ and Diplomacy will come up, so if that's what you're here to mention, I'd really appreciate it if you'd give some more detail about how you play, how long it takes, what scenarios are the most fun, which version/implementation has worked best for you, etc.
