Mentor Game - started 9th Jan 2018

Postby el Swine » 06 Jan 2018, 05:53

Greetings players, El Swine here, this mentor game will commence during the week starting 7th January 2018. Priority players who nominated in the last game thread for the game commenced 1st Jan 2018 but missed out, have been notified and will fill the first slots. The remaining slots will go to first to nominate in this thread. Here's all you need to know about a mentor game...

GAME: 138787. Se7en Deadly Sins

STATUS: Started


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 & provide encouragement. 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 a while 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 the remaining players. The duration of Diplomacy games can vary widely, but you can expect to be in the game for about two months if you do well. Should unforeseen life circumstances mean you need to quit, please let us know a.s.a.p. so that we 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 scheduled to begin on 1st of January, but we will start whenever we get a full set of seven players. If you sign up on this thread but don't get a place, you will get priority in the next mentor game.

Priority Players invited to join:

Thread for the next mentor game (led by yours truly) will be going up next Monday or Tuesday (1/15 or 1/16), so keep your eyes peeled!
Personally I'm always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught.

No idea is so outlandish that it should not be considered with a searching but at the same time a steady eye.

The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
