Hosting a Table

  • 16 months ago · Quote · #1


    I am new to this site even though I signed up a while back.  Is there a way I can set up a table and then invite someone to play instead of someone automatically starting a game with me?  I may be overlooking the obvious but everytime I try to play no options are available when it comes to inviting someone.  Thanks for any help.

    If you can't invite somebody you can accept random challenges by clicking plus icon top right corner ....

    The problem I have is every time I click on "Play Live" someone is already on my table and the game has started.  How do I create a table and then invite who I want?

    Do I have to be a paid member to create a table?

    You don't need to be a premium member. :) It sounds like you are seeing the top games when you enter live chess. You should be able to close out that game and see a blank table where you can challeng others. 

    If you don't wish to see the top games when you enter live chess, you can disable them in your settings.
