Old Favorites Show Growth During Holidays on This Week’s List of Fastest-Growing Facebook Games by MAU

Though the last seven days were slow for many games, our top five fastest-growing Facebook games on this week’s list managed to break 300,000 monthly active users gained during the holiday season.

Zynga’s Words With Friends and FarmVille take the top spots, which doesn’t comer as much of a surprise with the former still enjoying a growth spurt and the latter being an old favorite that can potentially draw in many lapsed players with holiday promotions. Tetris Battle holds steady at No.3, also enjoying significant gains in growth as developer Tetris Online Inc. begins to scale the game even beyond what it’s achieved through organic growth. At No.4 is wooga’s Magic Land, which continues to attract new players with updated features that distinguish the game from similar town-building role-playing games. Lastly is strategy combat title Men vs. Women.
