Mentor Game 10-Aug-15 game started

Postby drnomeansyes » 06 Aug 2015, 05:23

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 August 10th, 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 17-August mentor game.

The information for our current mentor game is below:

They (along with the enough players 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.

I've played one mentor game before, which ended in me getting a lead in SCs and then settling for an unsatisfying draw after I was stalemated. I would like to join this game to further improve my play.

Not necessarily, kishane. I'll send you information to join if the other two members on the priority list don't join within the next ~10 hours. We've got six, so we only need one more.
