This page can be used to select an existing game to view.
The Filter Box
The filter box (see below) has a Box Name field which can be used to limit the table to the games that use a specific Game Box. When specifying a Game Box do not include the version and use exact capitalization. The filter box also contains a Status selector which can be used to limit the table to only Active or Completed games. To re-display the table after changing the filters, please press the Submit button.
The Gamelist Table
When entered, board18View.php uses an AJAX call to php/allGameList.php to get a table containing a subset of all the games that currently exist in the database. The table contains 5 columns: Game Name, Box Name, Version, Status and Start Date. The table is sorted in reverse order of creation date. That is, the most recently created games appear first.
The php/allGameList.php program is documented on the allGameList.php WIKI page.
The returned list is displayed in the gamelist table as shown below.
Clicking on the name of a listed game will start a game session for that game.
