Mentor Game 29 June 2015 (Filled 7/7)

Postby Aaron the Hun » 26 Jun 2015, 17:52

Hey folks - time to fire up a new mentor game. Details are below.

This is my second mentor game. I'd like to be a little more active on the advice this game. So, if you are considering signing up for this please be prepared to commit to the duration of the game (regardless of whether your are winning or not), and be ready to communicate lots with the other players and myself. I'd like to keep the focus not so much on winning the game as trying to get a better understanding for the game.

A private message with game details has been sent to priority players. They will have a couple days to join in and then I will extend the invite to other interested players. If you are interested in joining this or a future mentor game please indicate your interest with a reply below. If we can't get you into this game, you'll be added to a priority list for a future game.

Cheers.

Aaron the Hun

Mentor games are for beginners to play together and learn the basics of Diplomacy and how the website interface works with an experienced player available to answer questions. Any player that thinks they might benefit from a teaching game may join:
• Looking to play your first game?
• Have played before, but it was some time ago and feel rusty?
• New to PlayDip and want to get used to the interface?
• Been on site for awhile and would like some pointers?
All are welcome. If you are interested in playing, either reply in this thread or use the site PM system to contact me. This game is slated to begin on June 29th, but we will start before then if we get a full roster. If you sign up this week but do not get a spot, you will be given priority in the next mentor game (timetabled for 29 June 2015).

Priority Players are users that were on the New Signups list for a prior game and did not have a chance to play. They (along with enough players from the New Signups list to fill the board) will get a 2-day priority window to join this game before the password will be sent out to all New Signups.

Veteran players fill open spots from surrenders in our games. If you are a vet and interested in helping the teaching effort, please let us know and we will add you to the veteran standby list.

Welcome Skkom,

I need to give first dibs to the players on the current priority list. If the four remaining four players pass or a couple days go by, I'd be happy to have you join in.

Otherwise, I've added you to the next week's list and you'll have the priority placement for the subsequent mentor game.

Hey vv1991,

Welcome to the site.

I've added you to the New Signups list.

If the remaining priority players don't join the game in the next 36 hours you are welcome to join this game. Otherwise you will have priority for the next mentor game.

I've played a single mentor game before, but had to autosurrender due to some RL issues. I'm free now and should be able to play a full game. I hope to have an enjoyable and fun game with everyone.
