If you are new to the site, and especially if you are new to the game, this might be a good way to start some games. Mentors will help with the mechanics of the game.

Mentor Game 03-10-2016 (started)

Postby Gooderian » 30 Sep 2016, 11:36

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 is welcome:

- 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. I ask only that you commit to seeing the game through to completion, because leaving a game partway through disrupts the experience for all of the remaining players. (The duration of Diplomacy games can vary substantially, but you can figure on the game continuing for about 2 months if you do well.) Should unforeseen life circumstances mean you need to quit, please let me know so that I can line up a replacement rather than abandoning the game without notice.

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 3rd, but we will start whenever we get a full roster. If you sign up this week but do not get a spot, you will be given priority in next week's mentor game.

Information on our current mentor game below:

Status: All spots have been filled, and the game is awaiting confirmation. Don´t be shy to sign up though, you could fill a spot if someone does not confirm or end up on next week´s priority list!

The Priority List consists of last week's New Signups who did not have a chance to play in that game. They (along with the enough players from this week's New Signups list to fill the board) will get a 2-day priority window to join this game before the password is 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. Mentors do not play in their own game. They are included on the list to keep the rotation current. If their name comes up in a game they are mentoring, they will be skipped.
