How to play chess on Facebook chat

Do you know you can play chess inside Facebook's chat window? Well, you can, and it isn't that hard to launch it.

All you need to do is to type "@fbchess play" and a board will appear and you can move on to show your chess prowess (or simply fool around till your beaten or resign - it's up to you).

  1. Type "@fbchess play" to start the game (the other person will play first)
  2. Play using standard chess notation:
     K for king, Q for queen, B for bishop, N for knight, R for rook, P for pawn
  3. Followed by the letter and number coordinate of the place you want to move to (in case several pieces can make that move, it will ask you which one you want to move)
    For example: @fbchess Pd4 - to move a pawn to position d4.

You can view a larger board by clicking the chat menu settings icon and select "See Full Conversation."

Happy checkmates! :)

P.S. Should you need to end you game sooner: @fbchess resign - and you can check all available commands typing @fbchess help.
