Mentor game 7-Aug-17 - game started

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.

So how does mentoring work? Is the mentor of the game the person we PM for advice? Or are we assigned particular other mentors from the list?

Sorry for the noob question! I'm excited to get started!

OK so what happens is that you'll be invited to a game when there's one starting - the game will be hosted by an experienced player who will be acting as a mentor to all the players in that game. You'll get some advice & guidance in the game, and you'll be able to ask your mentor questions about the mechanics of the game, how to enter moves, basic strategy, etc. You can communicate by PM or via in-game messages - different mentors have different preferences for that.

Please add me to the wait list, would like to start playing from hearing about stories online but don't have 7 people willing to sit down and play for such a long time period.
