Did You Know There’s A Secret Basketball Game On Facebook?
The next time you’re looking for something to do while you wait for your friends to reply on Facebook Messenger, just send them a basketball emoji. Am I crazy? No. You can actually play secret basketball on Facebook Messenger while you wait for a reply, and it’s seriously addictive.
All you need to do is update your Facebook/Messenger app and the game should work. Like that wasn’t cool enough, you can even compete with your friends by comparing your high scores with them. I’m sure that bit got your attention now, didn’t it? Don’t worry, you’re not the only one. People of the internet are in all kinds of freak out modes over this hidden game right now.
Here’s how you can start the game. Just send a basketball emoji to any friend on Facebook Messenger and click on the basketball. The game will pop up and you’ll see a ball and a basket. Just swipe your finger on the screen from ball to the basket and voilà! You just scored a goal! I’m not sure why something so simple is so addictive because I’ve been playing it all day at work. Goodbye, productivity!
After 10 consecutive goals, the game gets more difficult as the basket hoop now starts to move. You can even chat with your friends while playing the game. Try it out for yourself and tell us what you think in the comments!
