How Can I Stop Facebook Game Requests?

Updated on September 30, 2013

Social gaming is fun - if it's your thing! But if it's not, you can find getting a request from a friend REALLY annoying!

Most social games work around one simple theory - getting as many of your friends involved as possible. That means levelling up, doing quests or finishing tasks usually involves sending a 'game request' to a friend. The problem? Not all your friends want annoying game requests clogging up their notifications!

Blocking Games Individually (On PC)

You can access all current game requests in the app centre.

  1. On the left side of your menu, in the "Apps" section click on 'App Center'.
  2. Once inside your game centre, you can click on "Requests" (near the bottom left).

This section will display a list of all your requests, along with the option to accept or X (delete) them. Click on the X to get a list like the following:

  • You hid a GAME NAME request sent by SENDER
  • Block GAME NAME?
  • Ignore all requests from SENDER?

You can either block the game completely or block all game requests from that particular user.

      Was thinking about writing something similar until I saw this! It's truly annoying, the amount of requests I have got for CandyCrush has put me off going on facebook recently! I'm sure this hub will come in handy to many people.
