Could we Name our table with a short message

Post by Pax60 »

Hello,

It would be nice to be able to give a name when we create our new table with a short message.

Examples:
  • New players welcome, I will tell how to play in the chat
  • Xmass party
  • California club
  • Girls only
  • theme: animals
  • between 10 and 11 p.m. please
  • On sunday afternoons
  • Any nice message :)
  • ...

AFAIK, this has always been possible on BGA. You can add a description to your table, at least in the old lobby.

Go to the Play now page https://boardgamearena.com/lobby. You probably have to set it to manual at the top right, if this is not the case. Then when you create a table, you have the table configuration menu on the left side. The last line says something like "(no presentation) [change]". By clicking on "change" you can open a game table with a message which is shown in the lobby.

I haven't found anything like this in the new lobby (i. e. the game page).

But please note that many people won't read this message, because they are not used to notice these messages.

Language is a source of misunderstanding. (Antoine de Saint-Exupery: The Little Prince) But it is also the source of understanding - it all depends on how you use it. :-)

Hello,


Thank you, but I followed your instructions and the 'presentation' doesn't appear anywhere. At least I didn't see it.
