Refer to pages 9-10 of the User Guide (Help menu -> User Guide). The
procedure you are describing is normal for the creation of a brand new

If you are intending to join an already-existing live game in which
someone else is online and waiting for you, you have to right-click the
name of their game session and choose "Join Room".
