    I made an open invite with my opponent to have black. It was then
    shown in my games as my opponent to move whereas surely it should
    have been me to move. I was not allowed to move. Bessy boo
    accepted the invite and I tried to move again but it still would not let
    me! (Error message - "request failed&quot😉.
    So I deleted the game & have sent another open invite with my
    opponent playing black, but I cannot move in this game either!
    HELP!

    Ok, this sounds like a serious problem.
    I'll investigate right now and post back here with my findings.

    Yikes!
    This is a big bug! Thanks for bringing it to my attention - I will post a
    fix ASAP. You should not be able to even attempt to move on an
    open invite game with no opponent.

    I can't move when I've got an opponent either.

    Ok, the link should never have been displayed from the 'yourgames'
    view. This bug got in during the last release when we took people to
    the board view straight from the game creation page [to help move
    the game along]

    Delete any games where you have had this problem - repost and an
    open invite - and all should be well. If not, please keep me informed.

    Sorry for the problems.
