Play chess online live on facebook

A game of Chess is the most viable solution for gaming enthusiasts who want to exercise their body’s most important organ, the brain. Numerous research studies have highlighted the intellectual benefits of playing chess. You can play live online chess games on Facebook with friends, using Chat Messenger. Today we are going to see how to unlock and launch the chess game on Facebook.

The only prerequisite for starting a game is a special phrase to throw the board. By typing a quick phrase, a Facebook user can start a game with another friend through the Facebook website or Facebook messenger app.

Play Live Online Chess Games on Facebook

Start a conversation with a friend you want to play with. During a conversation, type @fbchess play and a table will appear. Your friend will come first (depending on the mobile app or Facebook on the web).

Select a part. There are standard algebraic notations such as:-

  1. Q for “Queen”
  2. B for “bishop”
  3. R for “Tower”
  4. K for “King”
  5. N for “Knight”
  6. P for “Pawn”

Pawns could be moved by issuing simple commands with numbers (with vertical axes). You must enter the letter and number representing the space you want to move on the board. For example, you would type @fbchess Pc3 to move your pawn to that space. If more than one piece can fit, you will be asked which one to move.

Accidentally, if you make a wrong move, you can undo a move with @fbchess cancel command or by clicking on the “cancel” button – but your opponent must accept the cancellation request.

If you want to view the board in full size, click on the chat menu settings icon and select “View full chat”. Although the Chess in Facebook Messenger app is not as good as the paid versions of the game, it serves the purpose well.

Games like Farmville and Candy Crush Saga have reached their threshold. At times like these, a decision to move its users to a new game is a completely different experience.

Will Facebook users appreciate this decision? Have your say in the comments section below.

Incidentally, there is another chess game you can play on Facebook. Take a look at this one too!
