Be able to spectate a game, anonymously or not
Spectating games is already available. In the lobby, click on the "Games: ###" heading and then select the spectate button next to the game you wish to view.
Right now I'm in a zoom conversation with 4 friends while they are playing. I would like to see their game directly from colonist.io webpage because but this is not possible right now and to solve this one of them is screen-sharing.
This fact gives the rest of the people the chance to see his cards and its very annoying.
@Alex Bruski: With thousands of games running, it's impossible to find your friend's game. If they provide the 4 digit ID, there is no way to join that game.We should be able to:(a) search by the ID or username, or(b) jump to spectate the game directly (i.e. colonist.io/spectate/#xxxx)
Me and my friends love Settlers and we've been doing game nights between us during the social distancing. We'd love a spectate option so we all can watch the game of people playing. Can this be possible?
There is already a spectate feature in place. Click on the game tab in the lobby, then find the game in the list that you would like to watch and click the spectate button.
It would be great if you could spectate games (that aren't private). So if your friends are already playing a game, you can join as a spectator and just watch.
That is already available... just select the game tab from the lobby and find the game in the list, then click on spectate!
Adding to this, you should be able to join a game as a spectator even if the game has not yet started (currently, you have to wait for the game to start).
Or add the ability for those in the game to send a spectator link

There really needs to be a way to search/find a game. Either search by game title or by who set it up. With hundreds of games, it's impossible to find the one you're looking for.
