Remember when Plants vs. Zombies was taking over my life? It's officially been ousted as my number one time-suck, replaced by Words With Friends, a game for the iPhone very similar to another popular word game to play with your friends.

You can play up to 20 games simultaneously with different friends, or if you're really in need of a Words With Friends fix (trust me, you'll get there), the game will match you with a random opponent. There's also a pass-and-play option if you and a friend are in the same room and want to play. Allow push notifications from the app, and it'll ping you when it's your move, meaning you can play with any friend who has the app, not just someone in your vicinity you've linked iPhones with.

Fierce competition has settled in quickly, so if your friends are anything like mine, be prepared for some heated games!
