Did You Know You Can Play Chess on Messenger?

facebook messenger chess

Chess is a classic game that probably your grandpa told you how to play. In fact, chess is a fun an challenging way to spend time with friends, but thanks to the digital era you won’t see too many people playing actual chess (the wooden one). Well, if you want to go back to the time when chess was important, and even maybe become a master plater, you can now simply do it on Facebook Messenger.

What you need to do in order to access Facebook Messenger’s chess game, you need to type in “@fbchess play”. To move the pieces, you need to enter a certain command. The commands are the following:

K – King
Q – Queen
B – Bishop
R – Rook
N – Knight
P – Pawn

Let’s say you want to move the pawn two spaces front. So you need to enter the command, for example “@fbchessPd2”. And as you progress through the game, you will memorize the shortcodes for the figures and you can play flawlessly!

So, what do you say, people from Facebook? Do you think that the option to play chess on Facebook Messenger is a nice addition? Are you going to be playing with friends?!
