Words With Friends Is Five Years Old -- Here Are Some Crazy Facts About The Game

It’s been five years since Zynga launched its wildly popular word-puzzle game, Words With Friends.

Since then, more than 7.7 billion games have been played, scoring a total of 1.2 trillion points. According to Zynga’s calculations, if you received a dollar for every point scored on Words With Friends, you’d be a millionaire in just two minutes.

More than 58 billion words have been played in five years — the word that has been played the most is “qi,” and it’s been played more than 1 billion times.
