All three Playfish titles in Facebook games top 10!


At Playfish we love to celebrate – and this time we have a good reason! As of today, all three of our social games – Who Has The Biggest Brain?, Word Challenge, and Bowling Buddies – are nestling in the Facebook Top 10 games chart.

facebook games top 10 on 9 June 2008

Combined, our three titles now attract around 700,000 daily unique players who spend on average over 35 minutes per day playing our games.

We’re hugely proud of our studios for this, so wanted to recognise them for a job well done. The fact that we got there in less than 6 months after launch without any external advertising makes it even more worthy of celebrating.

Here are some other metrics from the month of May which we may as well celebrate at the same time:

  1. More than 300 million minutes of monthly player engagement (~10% of YouTube’s monthly engagement!)
  2. More than three million monthly unique players
  3. We’re now a top-3 game focused company on Facebook by engagement

If you’re wondering why we focus on engagement metrics, it’s because we believe engagement is the best way of measuring how much players are enjoying our games and we also believe it’s the best proxy for value for in-game transactions and advertising in the long run.

Anyway, congratulations to our London, Arctic and China studios for an excellent job so far. We’re working hard putting the finishing touches on our next title, so hopefully there will be more to celebrate in the near future!

    I love the Who Has The Biggest Brain Game and I would LOVE to get it for my math classroom, but facebook is a blocked website at our school. Is there any way to Buy the game? Or a website for it that does not involve facebook?

    Hi Martina,

    we are constantly evaluating new languages to add. At the moment Croatian is not part of those langauges, but thank you for your suggestion – we will keep that in mind.

    Can you please publish all your games outside of Facebook? Facebook has been having issues and I do not like having to log in and play through their application. It would even rather go to MySpace than Facebook – anything would be better!
