Chess Pro

Chess Pro
Facebook

You know the game with the horses and the knights where all the pieces go in different directions and try to capture the king. When you start the game you'll see a chess board right on your screen. Just drag and drop your men around the board. Then click on "Play Move" to make your move final. Then you sit back and wait for your opponent to make their move. There's a little chat screen you can use to send each other messages during the match too.

Backgammon

Roll your virtual dice and move your pieces. With some luck and some strategy you just may be able to win Backgammon against another Facebook player. When you add this application you'll see a number of rooms you can choose. Some have players in them waiting for someone to come play them. Others already have two players and you can actually go and watch them play. Open your own room if you want to start your own game.

Monopoly

Dice Mogul
Facebook

Here's one board game that's been done over and over and made into all sorts of themes. Here's another, the Facebook version of Monopoly. In Facebook's Monopoly, you play against three other computer generated players. Roll the dice, move your pieces and buy your properties.

Put up houses and hotels just like in the Monopoly board game. The money count is in the middle of the board so you'll always know how much you have to play with. It moves kind of fast so it's hard to keep track of what the other players are doing.

Reversi / Othello

Othello
Facebook

Invite your friends to play or play with someone else. There are little green dots on the places on the board where you can place your pieces. There's also a message board so you can chat while you play. Make as many of the pieces as you can your color and you win. This is a high strategy game so put on your thinking cap.
