One Million Players Install THE WIZARD OF OZ™ on Facebook

Munchkinland is booming these days as more than one million players installed the award-winning The Wizard of Oz social game on Facebook since it entered beta testing on Halloween last year.

Players have flocked to the Land of Oz to join DOROTHY on her great adventures and have found themselves infatuated with the locals. Some players have adopted nicknames such as "Munchies" or "Munchkids," for their Munchkins while engaging with them and playing The Wizard of Oz.

Dorothy works alongside the Munchkins to build the YELLOW BRICK ROAD so she can reach the EMERALD CITY and the Munchkins have been busy! More than 110 million bricks have been created to help Dorothy make her way home.

That's not the only thing players have been doing:

  • Visited their neighbors more than 4.7 million times
  • Chopped more than 3.4 million trees in the Land of Oz- although there are no concerns over deforestation because many more continue to grow
  • Defended Munchkinland from more than 750,000 WICKED WITCH attacks
  • Played more than 7 million mini-games, including mining ore, fishing, juggling, a game of shuffle or shooting a Munchkin out of a cannon
"The Wizard of Oz delivers gamers so much more than the typical flat, distant experience we've seen so many times before," said Brian Eddy, the chief creative officer for developer Spooky Cool Labs. "The Land of Oz is a living, breathing place that is growing every day in population and fun. Players are embracing the opportunity to take a truly remarkable journey with their friends."

Spooky Cool Labs recently expanded the Land of Oz with the newly added Scarecrow's Farm, which is the first of many major updates planned for the future.
