If you wish other players to comejoin the game then you can yell by entering text in the white box under "Look for Players" and clicking the OK button. If you do not wish people to automatically join the game from the manager, then you should uncheck the blue box.

You can set the game Options before you start the game. There are three standard option settings for all games:
- invisible: The game room is not visible in the Game Manager.
- drawseat: This option places the players randomly at the available seats. Otherwise game play is as players joined the table.
- host: When this option is used, the player in position #1 controls the selection of options and starting the game. Only this player may set and change options and start the game, as well as calling game yells.
As well as these standard options, there are several game-specific options. Help on these can be found in the BSW help pages for each game. If there is white arrow in the option box, it means that each click of the arrow cycles the option through several settings. For example in Dominion you can select the starting set of cards. To enable this function you must first click on the box to the left.
If you click on the double chevron in the top right, you get an expanded view. Here you can set the level of experience or mood you expect for the game to take. Based on this setting, players in the manager can now filter to find and match your desired setting.

There must always be at least one person at the table still playing, otherwise this would be seen as a new game. This is useful if the "dropped" player does not come back. The vote of the remaining players in the game prevents anyone taking advantage of the opening, giving time for the original player to return. Overall agreement is determined by an absolute majority of the Players Levels.
