    I don't see why local play wouldn't work if its docked but I just want some confirmation if I can have one switch docked and then one of my friends can play using their own unlocked switch so I can have my preferred big screen and he can have a preferred close up small screen when we're playing multiplayer

    Considering that docking the switch really only outputs the video to a dedicated screen? Yes, it will work. No doubts about that. It's system to system. The dock is no middle man.
