Is there any site or app which would allow me to quickly set up a board to play on my phone with somebody next to me ?
It seems incredibly simple as a feature, yet not that easy to find. In particular I haven’t found a way to do that with OGS; the closest would be to use a demo board but it doesn’t react to the game ending and doesn’t score.
Happy to hear your suggestions if you know something, thanks!
long time it was but this was offered on some other app. the crazy stones app ( a 2d bot on android) had a human vs human mode I think, and a Japanese federation had an app for exactly what you search, but that’s all from my weak sometimes memory. Both free on google store
What are you referring about counting during a game? Groin was just talking about using the score estimator as an approximation and a guide for helping the score. And I was just plainly suggesting no score estimation tool is needed if just manually scoring themselves on the demo board.
I was suggesting to use the score estimator to score the game because our SE is pretty good at that too on a well finished ”game”, a demo in fact (not an estimation in the middle of a game).
I’m aware of the difference between an estimation and a counting, SE with his estimation provides us a quite reliable counting in fact (never had any mistake in my exoerience.)
Because the game is played on a demo in a kind of face to face using a phone, the scoring procedure don’t have to be like in a regular OGS game (confirm buttons) and the SE of lower quality you have before ending a regular game is replaced by the strong SE coming with demos and reviews.
I get a crazy idea that maybe we can have a “manual score” mini-game as another alternative scoring method - players have to use the tools like in the review to move stones around into groups of 10s and this additional “scoring board” can be used to settle dispute and moderators can participate in fixing the scores if there are problems.
