If you use Facebook then I am sure that you have already played most of these games. These games are so popular on Facebook that they have got millions of users in a short period of time. If you really have a lot of free time then you may start playing these games but don’t play so much as these games are so addictive that it becomes difficult to stop playing these games later.
Farmville is the most addictive and most popular game on Facebook with over 72 million monthly active users.
In Farmville, you are given a small piece of land and some coins to start the game. You have to plow your land and plant crops to earn more coins and experience. When the crops are grown you harvest them to earn the coins. You can use these coins to buy new seeds and to buy new items from the market. You can also plant trees. In the higher levels when you get bored with plowing your land with your hand then you can buy tractor to plow it. There are two similar vehicles like harvester to harvest the crops and seeder to plant the seeds. You can also earn some coins and experience with the ribbons. As you progress through the game you can collect ribbons such as yellow, white, red and blue ribbons for completing certain tasks. Each time you get a ribbon you are also awarded experience and coins.
Second most addictive game I found on Facebook is MafiaWars. Mafia Wars has got 27 million monthly active users.
In this game you can be a mafia boss and you have to create your own Mafia from your friends on Facebook. Personally I don’t like this game as it is a text-based game and it do not have any character to play the game. You earn money by doing jobs that you can use to buy better weapons. By doing jobs and fights you earn experience and like in other games this experience helps in moving up to higher levels. You need energy, stamina and health to do various jobs.
Happy Aquarium is one of the fastest growing games on Facebook with over 27 million monthly active users.
Happy Aquarium by CrowdStar is better than the similar fish inspired game FishVille. You are given a fish tank and some coins to start your game. You can purchase your own fishes from the store and train them. The store has wide variety of fishes. The started tank can hold 10 fishes but as you progress through the game, you can expand your tank by earning some coins. You can decorate your tank with gravel, wallpapers or some special items that can be purchased from the store. You need to feed your fishes daily. Tank also get dirty with time so you should also clean it regularly otherwise your fishes will get sick. When your fishes become adult, you can mate the male and female fishes of same species. Fishes are only allowed to mate once a day.

Fish Wrangler is a game about fishing, the thing that we usually don’t like to do in real life but we enjoy it in games. You are allowed to go for fishing every 15 minutes. The countdown timer on the right hand side will let you know when you fish. You will not catch a fish every time you go for fishing. The important thing in this game is to expand your crew which can be done by inviting new friends to this game. In this game you can earn more points and gold by catching different fish. If luckily you get a rarer fish, you will get more reward for it. As you advance in the game, your points and gold will increase accordingly.
Petville is latest addition by zynga. When I started using this game I got addicted to this game.
Petville is the game where you can create and dress your own unique pet, feed and clean your pet, decorate its home visit other neighborhood pets. Unlike Farmville, you earn Love Points instead of experience as you progress through the game that unlock new items and features. You also earn coins for doing various activities like visiting neighbors, feeding your pet, cleaning its home etc. You can use these coins to buy fun new clothes and furniture for your pet.
