Recommend some turn-based mutl-platform mobile games
April 23, 2012 2:23 PM   Subscribe

Friends & I enjoy playing words-with-friends because it's a) asynchronous/turn-based, so we can play throughout the day without having to find times we're both free; and b) cross-platform, for android & iphone. What other games that fit those two categories should we try?

Draw Something has been very popular lately.

Questions. (See "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead".)

You could play it by electronic communication if you relaxed the "hesitation" rule.

Hanging with Friends and Scramble with Friends.

Chess with friends, too
I've seen some gamesnamed "X with buddies" to indicate that they work this way.

Scramble With Friends. It is addictive even though I generally lose at it. It also seems to be heavy on the processor and battery.

Uniwar meets both your requirements, though it is much more a strategy game than Friends with Words.

Carcassonne.

There are Carcassonne apps on both iPhone and Android, but they are not cross-platform, and as far as I can see the Android version is local multi-player only.
