How to set up your group stage match

The home page of lichess looks like this:

Select the "Play With A Friend" button. The following screen will pop up:

Make sure that "Minutes per side" is set to 30, and "Increment in seconds" is set to 0.

If the match schedule says you are supposed to play Black side for this match, select the black king. Otherwise, select the white king.

Finally, you will see this:

Invite the user that you are scheduled to play against.

The timers will automatically begin when both players have made their first moves.

When your match is finished, please make a post in the Group Stage Matches thread with the format [White Side Player] vs [Black Side Player] and the URL link to the match so the results can be verified.

If you have any questions, please message me. Thanks!
