Here’s How to Play Facebook Messenger’s Hidden Basketball Game

Just in time for March Madness, Facebook has quietly slipped an Easter egg for hoops fans onto their mobile Messenger app. It’s a simple but oh-so-addictive shooting game that’ll keep you entertained (read: completely, utterly distracted at work) for hours. Here’s how to start shooting:

1. Make sure you’ve got the latest version of Facebook Messenger installed on your phone.
2. Send a friend a basketball emoji and tap on it. 
Start racking up points, get a confidence boost from the celebratory emojis that appear when you score, and then proceed to trash talk the hell out of the same friend you sent the basketball to earlier.
