Play games on Meebo

Now you can play games from a variety of choices offered by Meebo which was launched 2 days ago. Don’t know what Meebo is? Read about Meebo here. Wikipedia’s definiton of Meebo:

Meebo is an in-browser instant messaging program which supports multiple IM services, including Yahoo! Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, Google Talk, AIM, ICQ [1], and Jabber and is based on the free and open source library libpurple created by the software developers of Pidgin[2].

There are games like Backgammon, Blackjack, Checkers, Chess, Go, Pirate War, Reversi, Sudoku Wars and Texas Hold ’em to name a few. The game developers for Meebo are 3rd Sense, Absolutist, AddictingGames, Clearspring Technologies, Come2Play, Gamebrew, MediaGreenhouse, Mochi Media, MyGraffitiWall, Jiggmin, Kongregate, PlayFirst, Presidio Studios, and ZeroCode.

I tried playing a game of Reversi with my bro and it worked out fine. He was using MSN messenger at that time and we were still able to play the game and chat real-time.

With the launching of these games, I think Meebo is moving in the right direction to interactivity and real time action. I can see that Meebo is becoming a popular choice amongst students in my area for IM applications. Students tend to use it in labs other than installed IM like Yahoo IM, MSN and multiprotocol instant messaging application like Trillian and Pidgen.

Good job Meebo!
