Sims and Smurfs Still Ahead on This Week’s List of Fastest-Growing Games by MAU

The Sims Social and The Smurfs & Co. switch places in the top two, while The Pokerist Club edges past Zoo World 2 for a spot in the top three on this week’s list of fastest-growing games by monthly active users.

There’s not much in the way of newcomers to talk about this week, but we observe two Chinese-language games — FarmVille Chinese and Happy Elements’ My Kingdom — squeezing into our top 20. This is something of a rarity as most Chinese-language games only turn up in our rankings by daily active users, never quite reaching the size needed to claim spots on our top 20 rankings by MAU. FarmVille Chinese is still the largest Chinese-language game on Facebook to date:
