I never really thought of myself as a gamer, but I find myself playing iPhone games fairly often for those nook & cranny moments. Live Poker is my favorite. It's great to play against real people instead of a machine. Plus the game is perfect for short windows of time that you can string together towards your overall score.

I love the stuff you all are making at Zynga. Keep up the great work!
