Play a game without an account

Can site do something like


where each is the static link, and the /w is for white, and /b is for black.

This way, I could email someone a link to play an impromptu game of Go without them having to register or set up an account.

Would a Guest Account be workable?

At the moment there is no such feature.

It would lead to the problem that anyone could make a move given the link.
So it would at least need to be obfuscated.
Also a not so honorable “hoster” could make moves for their opponent.

However, feel free to post your suggestion here: https://ogs.uservoice.com
so other players can vote on your idea!

During beta testing, this was actually true even for logged-in users using the API. Hilarity ensued :slight_smile:
