Secret Games Hidden On The Facebook Messenger App

Facebook messenger games coming to a phone near you: Fancy a game of chess while you sit on the bus stuck in traffic, bored out of your mind? There’s an app for that. What Factors Determines Which Friends’ Photos Show Up On Your Facebook Timeline?

Make your move by typing in what piece you want to move. Eg. P for pawn and square F6 if you want to go to that square. It’ll look something like this ‘@fbchess Pf6.’ But maybe don’t do that, as you can see it’s an impossible move.

If you get stuck – like me – type in “@fbchess help”

You can still chat to your friends while you play, and if you hate chess why not play basketball instead?

This one’s a lot easier. Just go find the basketball emoji on your keyboard and send it to your competitor.

Once that’s on the screen, give it a tap and it brings up a hoop so away you go. Use your finger to direct the ball into the hoop.

I got a bit cocky and thought it was easy, but after the first round it gets bloody hard. But Chemmie found out the hard way that you have to update the app before playing, so in the end I did win. Victory!
