“Why is it drug addicts and computer aficionados are both called users?” Clifford Stoll
In this post, I will attempt to answer Mr. Clifford’s question by bringing to you the top ten Facebook addictive games which will turn you from a “balanced” human being into an addicted gamer; always waiting for his or her next game fix! (You can indulge in the 5 most addictive Twitter games by clicking here)
Therefore, my advice to you is as follows: If you work, go to school, have a family, have friends, or even have a life at all, I urge you not to play more than one of the following games in the same day. Trust me, the results are amazingly terrifying! :)
1. Sushi Panic
Whether you are a sushi lover or not, this sushi-based tetris-like game is guaranteed to keep you at the edge of your seat, especially when those sushi pieces start rushing by in the speed of light! The game is simple: group similar sushi pieces together as they pass by on the conveyor for score and to prevent the jam which would end up in a sad game over… leaving the poor sushi behind!
Visit GooBox :)
If you are into fresh colors, unique music and using your logic, this game is for you! I’ve been addicted to it for the past five days, since I was introduced to it, and I just LOVE IT! Although it is similar to many games that we have all played in the past, it has a unique touch that will keep you coming back for more!
3. Bejeweled Blitz
Similar to Elementz yet with more options you can use, such as time extension and special gems, this game is guaranteed to keep your fingers stuck to your keyboard for at least a few hours in a row – Do NOT try this at work! :)
Enter Bejeweled Blitz now!
4. Brain Buddies
Many of us played, at one point or the other, those IQ quiz games in efforts to test our intelligence. They were challenging yet, I must admit, not as addictive as this game since you have the ability to compare your brain “power” with others! Once someone you know breaks your high score, I assure you you will be coming back to kick their behinds!
Take a look at Brain Buddies…
5. Who Has the Biggest Brain
Along on the same lines of brain testing comes this intriguing and smart game to test your visual, logic, mathematical and memory abilities. Time would be ticking as you try your best to collect a high score to show off to your friends that “you’re the boss”!
Test your brain!
6. Word Challenge
So you think you can spell? Right? Think again! There are hundreds, if not thousands, of words that you have never heard of and this game is the living proof! Make up words within a certain time frame and see if you have the verbal ability of a scientist or a hermit!

7. Mafia Wars
Do you enjoy movies about the mafia and their wars? This game is just the one for you! Build your own mafia family, buy weapons, make hits and enjoy living outside the law!
Enter Mafia Wars…
Though I have to admit that this game never captured my attention before, the harvesting, plowing and planting caught me off guard and actually drew me to it, as if it has some magical powers of seduction! You can also choose your neighbors, shop from the market as well as many other features that make this experience both real and captivating!
9. Goo Maze
Do you have a thing for goo? I think not but that won’t be the case for long! This new idea for finding your way through the maze with your goo is exciting that it might even make you bond with your goo; talking to it and trying to avoid losing in order to protect it!
Another game from GooBox!
10. World Cafe
Have you ever dreamed of managing, or even owning, your own restaurant or cafe? I know I have and now your dream can come true, online! Hire employees, cook different dishes, manage your expenses and enjoy living the dream! I am sure you can’t stay away for too long, your employees will need your supervision!
Build your own cafe here!
After listing those games to you, I really hope you don’t end up cursing my name when your friends fight with you about not leaving the house, or even when you get fired after being caught playing them in the office!
Finally, I wonder: Do you know of any other Facebook addictive games? Have you played any of the above games? If not, why so?
I personally invite you for a challenge in almost 6 of these games! :) Ready?
