    Omg!!

    Mob Wars is a multiplayer role-playing game hosted on the social networking site Facebook. It allows players to engage in Mafia-style wars with one another and has become one of the most lucrative Facebook applications and the first to net USD 1M per month in revenue.[1] However, this number has never been confirmed by the developer or any third parties.

    Developed by David Maestri while he worked for Freewebs.com, it was subsequently the subject of an unsuccessful intellectual property lawsuit as Maestri's former employers attempted to claim ownership over the asset.[2] The lawsuit was ultimately settled in December 2008 with the IP for Mob Wars remaining with Maestri but with SGN allowed to develop their own Mafia based role-playing application.[3] In August 2008, Mob Wars had 2.5 million active users.[4] It has spawned several very similar games with nearly identical gameplay and format on both Facebook and MySpace, some of which, such as Zynga's Mafia Wars, were the subject of further lawsuits.[5] Zynga made some changes to Mafia Wars so it wouldn't resemble Mob Wars as closely, but Mob Wars creator David Maestri moved forward with his lawsuit.[5] In September 2009, Maestri and Zynga settled the case for about $7–$9 million, less than the $10 million Maestri had originally demanded.[6]

    In 2009 the developers of Mob Wars created a spin-off game called Mob Wars: La Cosa Nostra, which follows a similar format, but awards skill points at a much faster pace than the original game.

    Enquiring minds want to know, Bob. If it is true share some of that money with us. It is better to give than to receive.

    Maybe - but what you have to remember is that back then they were one of the first games available... the games market is a totally different place now with way more competition... no-one is going to make that kind of money again... even tho there will actually be more game players these days.. there are just too many games to choose from...

    I suspect even the likes of you have had moments in the game when you struggle to find the interest to play on - and many get/got bored and left.. we have a new influx and for now its still here, but never again - for the reasons mentioned - will such a thing happen..

    In 2008 they shut down mobster on MySpace and the MySpace charge the way they ran thing .there no games on MySpace no more just video and music that why MySpace is at a lost now. To tell you the truth mafia war wasn't as fun as mobster was. Mob war is more close to mobster then mafia war. This is one of the reasons DFWB/THEBADSEED has chosen to start back playing in mob war it all most like mobster on MySpace. There was a lot of look a like on Facebook. But mob war was the best. DFWB/THEBADSEED LOVE MOB WAR

    So, is Bobs really Davids? Doesn't really roll off the tongue.... Anyhoo, good work, Bobs! It's what fuels our American Dream.

    P.S. I imagine Davids has sheeet to do and Bobs holds down the fort.
