How to stop Facebook game requests

I think I speak for everyone if I say that we hate getting Facebook game invites all day long. There is probably a lot of people that still play games on Facebook, but I am not one of them, so I thought I will share how you can get rid of them. It does take a bit of maintenance from time to time, but believe me, it’s well worth it.

Facebook does change things from time to time, and this guide is correct for June 2015. The concept should however not change any time soon though. So here we go.

On your Facebook home page, you should see a link on the left navigation under the APPS heading, called “Games“. Click on it.

Click on the Activity link on the top of the page, and then on the Invites page. You should now see a list of all the invites you received from various people for various games. Next to every invite you should see a Close (X) and a Accept button. Click on the (X) button.


This should now show a new piece of content giving you the option to block the game, or block all requests from this person. I usually block both, so I know I will never get another invite from that game, and will never get another invite for games from that person.

The first time you do this, it might take a bit longer, because there might be a lot of invites from a lot of people. I usually perform these steps once a month. There are not a lot of new games coming out every day, so once it’s under control you should be set, and the game requests should become less and less. I get almost no invites, but every now and again I do, then I will just block that game, and by the time everyone starts playing, I will not get invites from everyone because it’s already blocked.

I will expand this guide to include instructions on how you do this on Tablets and Phones so watch this space. Please let me know in the comments below if anything is unclear.
