So one phone is going to create a "key" for a particular node/branch of information in a real time database in Firebase. I want to share that key with only the phones in that game lobby. What would be the best way to create that game lobby so I can share that relevant information?

I think Prof. Stonedahl and l came up with an answer so I wanted to share it.

I can create a node called "lobbies" and have the user generate a lobby name to push into it and make a branch. The other players can search for that lobby name and join it. From there I have the path in the database that I need to access all the relevant information of that game for the other users to access.
