    I've just been involved in a message exchange where I and another player agreed to play (another) game, but neither of us really wants to claim a color. I most lately suggested that he call heads or ails and I would flip a coin. So my suggestion is an additional radio button for color in the challenge page. Then you can check white lack or andom for the Choose which color you wish to play option button. If you check andom the server will execute a and() call and massage the result to get an even or odd answer to assign black or white.

    Sound good? Opinions anyone?

    A fair request. Someone else requested this once - but it doesn't come up that often.

    Maybe something different to a randomizer would be to have it work out how many games were played against the opponent in question with the respective colours and then it will automatically choose the game with the least.

    i.e. if player A had played player B more times as player A being white then it would automatically choose player A to be black.
