Here are all the lists:

Top 3 Games Most Played

  1. 6-Ball Puzzle
  2. Mancala
  3. Connect Four

6-Ball Puzzle, a surprisingly in-depth game pulled from Mario Party 9 and involves connecting six of the same colored balls to send “junk” to an opponent, has been played more than 14 million times in total. Meanwhile, Mancala was popular in every region due to its simple nature, and it is particularly popular with female players. That said, Connect Four is the game with the most overall players, and it is especially popular in the West due to its pick-up-and-play nature and how widespread the game is.

Top 3 Longest Played Games

  1. Mahjong
  2. Yacht
  3. Hanafuda

Over 400,000 total hours of Mahjong have been played within Clubhouse Games‘ Switch entry and, as you might expect, it was popular with crowds throughout Asia. In Europe and North America, Yacht, the Yahtzee-based dice game where you try to roll certain face combinations was a hit. Meanwhile, the traditional card matching game Hanafuda was popular with Japanese players.
