Lucky Train and Price Is Right Game (BETA) come in at the top two slots; they are, respectively, a city-building game based around trains and a social version of the game-show classic. The former is about to pass the important million MAU mark, while the latter appears to have some problems engaging users, but could still turn out to be huge — Family Feud did so before, after all.

We’ll cover the rest of the games this morning over at Inside Social Games. The first non-game app is Sanal Video, at number there, with 150,789 new MAU. This is a pretty vanilla video-sharing app, a category that has rarely held up for long on Facebook. But it’s also a Turkish-language app, so we can’t assume that it will necessarily follow in the footsteps of English-language counterparts.

Facebook Live is also for video, but with a rather narrow purpose: this is Facebook’s live stream from its Palo Alto headquarters, intended to give members a look into what happens inside the company. The stream has picked up plenty of MAU, but has only 7,878 daily active users at the moment.

The two remaining non-game apps are pretty standard. All My Quotes, at number 15, allows users to collect and display their favorite quotes. And in the last position, number 20, for special friends is a gifting app that shares sweet pictures between friends.
