On Facebook, the social games are big business. And the players of one game are all pulling together for the holidays holding one of the biggest charity events ever seen on Facebook. The game is Mafia Wars, with over 20 million daily players worldwide.
For those of you who never heard of Mafia Wars, it is a text based game by Zynga Game Network Inc., the largest social game maker in the world. The premise of the game is to do jobs, build properties, rob and ice other mafia members all while you try to build your Mafia Empire and become the best in the game. It is a fun and very addictive game for those who play and the players of these games are very passionate about it. It is also available on other sites like Yahoo, MySpace & coming soon to the new Google Games Network but Facebook is the biggest. The players of these games come from every walk of life, so it is not just kids.
The game takes on a whole new direction on Facebookthat Zynga never antisipated due to the social networks ease of networking with people from all over the world. The players of the game on Facebook have added their own wrinkle to the game by forming their own Mafia family groups so they can all better communicate and are structured just like a real mafia family with Godfathers, Godmothers, Capo's, Soldier's, Hitmen and the list goes on. They are very organized and dedicated to the game and now they are pulling together to show everyone just how dedicated and together they really are by holding this event.
The event is a Mock War, where as everyone just goes in and kill other players, a so called free for all battle. Only this time it is not to see who has the strongest family but to raise money for a great cause. They are all showing the world that mobsters do have a heart and are stepping up to prove it. This will deffinately be the biggest event ever for the game, Facebook and the charities who will benefit from the event.
The event is open to every player of the game and the minimun donation to play is just $2.00 but you are free to donate more and they hope you will for the charities sake.
