    Aja-ban with the same ID share the same board. What does this mean? Suppose you are in Brazil and your friend is in Spain. You can log into the same board and board pieces will move on your friend's screen as you make moves, and vice versa.   For this, it is recommended that the ID should be sufficiently unique and long, since you don't want some stranger happen to use the same ID and destroy your beautiful opening!
