Boarding Groups are a way to enter battles and buildings in Cog headquarters without using an elevator. They were first implemented during Test on January 28, 2009  and they were released to the public on March 17, 2009.
Creating a Boarding group
When in a Cog HQ building entrance (such as the Sellbot Factory entrance) if you click on a toon's name, two new buttons will appear below the others. Clicking "Invite" will invite that toon into your boarding group. When ? is clicked, it will tell you about Boarding Groups and how many toons can be in a Boarding Group in that area. If the invited toon agrees to join your Boarding Group, a new screen will appear that shows the name of your Toon and the toon that joined. If you have already have another toon (or toons) in your boarding group, that toon's name will be added below the other members of the boarding group. If that toon does not want to join, a message will be sent to you saying that the toon rejected your request to join your boarding group.
Boarding group leader controls
On the boarding group window, there are several controls for the leader to use. One is a green button that says go, and can only be used by the leader of the boarding group. If pressed, all toons in the boarding group will enter the facility at once. A boarding group must have two or more toons to board. Another button is yellow and says leave. If clicked by a toon that joined a boarding group, that toon's name will disappear from the Boarding Group screen. If used by the leader of the boarding group, the boarding group will be disbanded (it will not exist anymore.) When in a boarding group, if the leader enters the elevator, all toons in the boarding group will teleport into the elevator with the leader. Anybody else will not be allowed to leave or enter the elevator. The elevators that can have Boarding Groups are as follows:
