Mentor Game 12-October-15

Postby franzjosefi » 06 Oct 2015, 08:00

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 October 12th, 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.

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 Standby Veteran list.

Hey,
I would appreciate being added to the list as a new player.
thanks,

I suffer from two conditions:
1. I have an aversion to stabbing.
2. I frequently confuse 'aversion' with 'addiction' :(

Hello, I don't know what I don't know ! I would like to try a mentor game, although I do have a handful of games experience.

Thanks,
John

I take it I should just keep checking back to this forum and I will see me on a signup or wait list ?
