Work Break Just Got Fun: Play Games on LinkedIn

Work Break Just Got Fun: Play Games on LinkedIn

Take a break, boost your brainpower, and connect with colleagues in a new way - LinkedIn has quietly rolled out a selection of casual games within its platform.

Ever feel a pang of guilt sneaking in a few minutes of Wordle or Sudoku during work? 

Here's a Cool Tip.  Play games on LinkedIn.

LinkedIn, the professional networking platform, has started introducing a selection of lightweight games directly into the experience.

LinkedIn recognizes the importance of short breaks for focus and productivity.

Games can be an icebreaker for networking or deepening existing connections.

Here's how to do it.
  1. Log into LinkedIn
  2. Games can be accessed through various channels:
    • Games hub -
    • Search for games on the LinkedIn Search bar
    • My Network page
    • Today’s Games section under LinkedIn News on your homepage (Desktop only)
  3. Select a game to play.
  4. Enjoy!

This new feature is rolling out gradually (check News or "More" section) for both desktop and mobile platforms.

Once available, click the games icon to see options like "Queens," "Inference", and "Crossclimb."

 You can play once per day, similar to Wordle.
  • Queens: Logic Puzzles. Challenges strategic thinking.
  • Crossclimb: Trivia.  Tests general knowledge.
  • Inference: Word Association.  Creative word connections.
These games offer quick diversions that can counterbalance workday seriousness.

And puzzles encourage problem-solving and pattern recognition.

However, as with any distraction, moderation is key.

It's still early, but this feature hints at LinkedIn's desire to make the platform more engaging and multifaceted.  

Expect more games, potential leaderboards, and maybe even company-specific custom options.

Who knew your professional network could be this much fun?
