Love chess? Love Facebook? Well, has finally fully arrived on Facebook! Today we launched our new Facebook Chess app. We had the most popular chess app on Facebook already that was originally built by Jamie Holding, but we decided to bring even more features to the app and bring the development in-house.

If you are on Facebook you might want to check it out:

Play on Facebook

Keep in mind that it only has a small fraction of the the features found on, but it's really cool to be able to play with your buddies who are on Facebook and won't necessarily want to become members.  Some people ask if we can have it so that you can play games interchangably on and Facebook. The short answer is NO - it is technically nearly impossible at this time :) Sorry! If you play on both, they are separate.

For those of you who want to just keep playing chess here on but want to help support, become a fan on Facebook! 

Become a Facebook Fan

Thanks again for all of your support. We're working hard to bring a great chess experience to as many people around the world as we can.

- The Team

    Erm, the 'Play on Facebook' link just loads Facebook's homepage. Is the application down (e.g. undergoing maintenance), or is the link wonky?

    Liking the upgrades.. if only it had conditional moves, facebook chess seems to move at a slower pace than chess.

    facebook chess is how I found, so I think it's great you guys are expanding the features.

    In all fairness - I must report that I did (finally) get registered at Facebook - and then only to find that the chess part was not functioning. But I really don't need Facebook anyway. (Whatever it is.) I'm only here for the chess. Not to meet girls or anything like that. Unless you girls want to meet me - then - here I am - you've found me.

    I learnt about from with the chess application being powered from this website.  This has to be the number one chess website in the world.

    i cant procede.

    i keep getting this: 'Your session has expired, please click "Home" in the menu to continue using Chess'


    does it take a while when you initially add it, or what??

    yeah i just checked.  It's updated by itself and there's a message telling you about it. 
  • 8 years ago


    So if we've already had this application for some time now, does it just become upgraded on its own?

    oooh does this mean game explorer is now finished?  If that's been posted already i must have missed it somehow.  Embarassed

    Call me naive, but what exactly is Facebook? Is it anything like that MySpace nonsense?
