Facebook just announced that it is adding a new feature called Facebook Fantasy Games. The gaming feature is coming to the iPhone and Android app in the US and Canada, and it looks quite entertaining.
Facebook’s new fantasy games are all about predicting various sports and pop culture events with your friends to see who knows the most. Unlike most fantasy sports websites, Facebook is also rolling out culture games, so even people who hate sports can get in on the fun.
The company said its games feature “simpler formats that are easy to play for people new to prediction games, while still engaging enough for more seasoned players.” Many fantasy sports services require you to be an ultra-hardcore fan, and it sounds like Facebook is trying to cater to more casual fans who won’t study every detail.
