Strange things are afoot on the App Store as everyone rushes to get their games and apps out before the iTunes freeze this Friday. The Penny Arcade The Game: Gamers vs. Evil [$2.99] card game hit the New Zealand App Store moments ago, and with any luck, should be available tonight in the US at 11:00 PM Eastern.

The $4.99 price in particular is a steal, considering the physical version sells for $29.99 on Amazon. Penny Arcade The Game: Gamers vs. Evil is a card game set in the Penny Arcade universe. The game is sporting a 7.12 out of 10 on Board Game Geek and centralizes around a deck building mechanic. Here's a video that explains how the (physical version) of the game is played. Warning, there's lots of weiner talk, if you're currently in a non-weiner safe environment:

Better yet, the iOS version features not only local play against AI as well as local pass and play mode, but also full online asynchronous multiplayer support. 2 to 4 players can play at once, and I don't know how you can't have a good time with a game that features a "Touch Weiners" card.

    Yes! Playdek has yet to let me down (Food Fight wasn't their fault, the source material was bad). Between this, Fluxx, Stone Age, the new Carcassonne expansion, and many more; board gaming on iOS is awesome. Then there's a whole bunch of other games too that sweeten the deal.

    Sorry, maybe I've missed it - is this iPad, iPhone, or universal?

    This will be awesome.

    Holy crap, I love this game.

    Sounds neat but Magic 2013 is a much more strategic affair with a ton of depth.

    Does anyone know how to see your score (victory points) during the game?
