How to Play Facebook Messenger's Hidden Games

The Facebook Messenger mobile app is one of the most downloaded and used apps around the world, with over one billion downloads. While there are plenty of GIFs, stickers, and photos to send in your messages, there's another way to entertain yourself in the app.

Facebook has included a few hidden games inside its Messenger app. Games like basketball, soccer, and chess can keep you occupied in between messages or long waits in line.

Here are a few screenshots of the games you can play:

Hidden Facebook Messenger Basketball Game

Facebook Messenger Basketball

This game is pretty easy to find. In a chat window, find the basketball emoji and send it to a friend. Once the message is sent, tap the basketball emoji that you just sent and the game will appear. To play the game, all you have to do is swipe up to throw the basketball into the hoop. Pretty simple, right?

Hidden Facebook Messenger Soccer Game

Facebook Messenger Soccer

Finding the soccer game is similar to finding the basketball game. Except this time you're looking for the soccer ball emoji. In a chat window, find the soccer ball emoji and send it to a friend. Once the message is sent, tap the soccer ball emoji that you just sent and the game will appear. To play this game, all you have to do is tap the ball before it falls off the screen. The more successful taps, the higher your score.

Hidden Facebook Messenger Chess Game

Facebook Messenger Chess

The last one is the chess game. This one is a little more hidden than the others. To activate the chess game, you have to send the message "@fbchess play" to a friend in a chat window. Once the message is sent, a chess board will appear in the messages section. Tap the chess board to start playing!

This game isn't as easy as swiping or tapping the ball. In order to move chess pieces, you have to type "@fbchess" followed by the piece abbreviation and the square code you want the piece to fill.

Confused? So K stands for King, Q for Queen, B for Bishop, N for Knight (P as in Psycho!), R for Rook, and P for Pawn. Moving your king to square C5 requires you to enter "@fbchess Kc5". Once you do it a few times, it's pretty simple. Luckily, the board outline is labeled as a guide for newcomers!

Nintendo to develop games for smartphones

Nintendo has released a statement that they will be entering an alliance with Japanese mobile game company DeNA Co. to develop games for mobile devices.  This means that Nintendo's trademark characters like Super Mario and Pokemon could be playable on your smartphone or tablet.  "With our powers combined!", Nintendo will be combining their intellectual property and game development skills with DeNA's expertise with mobile gaming.

Both companies have agreed to build a global membership service for various devices including personal computers, smartphones, and Nintendo consoles.  This is a smart move for Nintendo as people increasingly turn to mobile phones and social networks to play games.

In technical terms, Nintendo will acquire about 15 million DeNA shares or a 10 percent stake.  In return. DeNA will acquire about 1.759 million Nintendo shares, or 1.24 percent of the company.  Both acquisitions are worth 22 billion yen, or $182 million, due by April 2nd of 2015.

The service is set to launch in the fall of 2015.

Flappy Bird

Used iPhone with Flappy Bird application selling for $100,000 on eBay

If you haven't downloaded a copy of the mega popular iOS game, Flappy Bird, from the App Store, you may be too late as it has mysteriously disappeared from the App Store entirely.  Probably because it looks mysteriously like Super Mario Brothers, but I'm not going to judge.  Someone put their used iPhone for auction on eBay with the game installed for $100,000.  If people are as crazy about this as they were with Beanie Babies, it will probably go quick!
