Zynga games are seeing a bit of the lift this week as Words With Friends claims the top spot on our list of fastest-growing games by daily active users. Bubble Witch Saga and CityVille round out our top three.

While thoroughly integrated with its mobile parent game, Words With Friends for Facebook takes a different approach to monetization. The mobile game gets people to pay for a one-time download mainly as a way to avoid watching video ads between moves. The Facebook version keeps the video ads, but only allows players to opt out of watching them by inviting a certain number of friends. The actual monetization in the Facebook game comes from spending Facebook Credits on one of three gameplay-boosting features, like a “Count” tool that displays a player’s possible score as they place down individual tiles.
