What Facebook is Playing This Week: Still Stuck on Candy Crush SagaS

Clinging tenaciously to its top spot on the Facebook daily active users list, King.com's Candy Crush Saga keeps itself a couple hundred thousand players beyond FarmVille 2 by getting everyone stuck on level 86 and then taunting them.

Perhaps it's just me banging my head against the licorice-laced lair of frustration until my face is bloody and delicious, but it makes me feel better to imagine each of those nearly 7.5 million people playing each day is right there with me. I dream of a day when we join together and rise up, tearing down the aniseed tubing and using it to string up our oppressors.

My wife is on level 120 or so. She'll be among the first to fall.

How long can Candy Crush Saga maintain its slowly-shrinking lead? Will FarmVille 2 counter-attack with candy-matching? It's never-ending excitement here in What Facebook is Playing This Week land.
