In the first 25 days post-launch, 50,000 of you installed Who Has The Biggest Brain? It only took another 14 days to pass the 100,000 installs mark. Today, we also passed another milestone: 100,000 game plays a day. To put this in perspective, that’s almost 300 man days of brain training happening every day. In addition, we have also been ranked 19th most active app in the Facebook directory, just below Scrabulous (17th most active). We try to adopt an ethical distribution strategy (eg no forced invite, no spam) and your enthusiastic feedback is really encouraging. Let’s see how long it will take to reach 200,000 installs. Leave your guess in the comments and stay tuned for some fun new features coming your way real soon. Happy brain training!

“[Playfish] has already launched its first game, Who Has The Biggest Brain?. It’s a Facebook application that’s inspired by brain training games on DS and mobile, with the added fun that you can see how your brain rates against your Facebook friends.
It’s rather marvellous.”
