Have you ever played a chess game while chatting? No? Now you can, and facebook has a fully functional Chess game in its chat messenger and anyone can play.

You can start, play, move, undo, reset and do whatever you need to play the game. All you need to do is to send a special keyword to start and play the game.

Unfortunately, it is not a drag drop game so you need a set of commands to and here is a basic list of commands you need to kickstart your game-

To start the game –

To start the game open a chat window with that person and write @fbchess play. It will launch the game with random colors.

You can choose your color also by typing @fbchess play black or @fbchess play white.

To make a move –

The commands use Standard Algebraic Notation; in layman’s terms, this means that P is pawn, N is knight, B is bishop, R is rook, Q is queen and K is king. To move a pawn from the starting position, for example, you’d type “@fbchess Pb4”.

Some other basic commands are –

  • To claim a draw : @fbchess draw claim
  • To Offer a draw in the current position: @fbchess draw offer
  • To offer an undo of the last move: @fbchess undo
  • To start the game again and redesign it : @fbchess resign
  • To show current position: @fbchess show
  • To show stats between current players: @fbchess stats
  • To continue a game from another conversation: @fbchess continue

Note :- And if you stuck anywhere then @fbchess help is your command.

Now just play and share your experience. 🙂
