Mentor Game - 10-Apr-17 (Underway)

Postby Aaron the Hun » 08 Apr 2017, 20:33

Hey folks - time for another mentor game.

If you are considering signing up for this please be prepared to commit to the duration of the game (regardless of whether you 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 the priority 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 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. We 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 10-Apr, 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 the next mentor game.
