I was thinkin somethin like we should have 1 button clicks for "Start new
room" and "Find a room"

start new room just starts a new game where you are the host

find a room just finds a room that isnt full and throws you in there

apart from that, if you wanted to join a specific room i was thinkin you
could join the lobby and it would list the games (let you filter by game
type later on when we have more games).

you can chat in there w/ people and join a game from the list, or in there
you could also have buttons for "start new room" and "find a room".

Something like that.

I like the 1 button clicks to start a new room or find an existing one
though because from in game having those 1 button clicks would preserve the
immersion of the game.

but shrug, thats just what i was thinkin (:
