Scratch boards on OGS?


I’m relatively new to OGS, but also Go in general. I love this site; it’s really helped me improve a lot these first few months!

Maybe I’m just missing it, but is there a feature to play on a “scratch board” locally? Kind of like what’s done here: (If you haven’t heard of Tak, I’d recommend checking it out. It’s a recent abstract game, rich with strategy.)

This would be useful to just set up patterns to see how they look and also to play against someone else on the same computer.

I think what you might be after is a Demo Board. You can create as many as you want if you want to keep different experiments / local games separate.

Click on the hamburger menu in the top left corner and then click on Demo Board


Previously created boards can be found at the bottom of your Profile page, underneath your Game History.


Right, this is exactly what I’m looking for. Thanks!
