Mentor Game for September

Postby Zaynation » 12 Sep 2018, 21:58

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. These games are slated to begin on 23rd of July, 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.

Information on our current mentor game below:

Status: Signups

Your mentor will be: Zaynation

I've already sent messages to players who expressed interest in the last mentor game.

I'd be interested in learning to play! I hope to lead my students through a game in the next few weeks.

Its been a few months and I need to break the rust off. I would love to be included in a mentor game, relearn whatever basics I have surely forgotten in my absence. If any Mentor games have an open slot, I would love to be included.

This is my first game of diplomacy, and I would be interested to see how it goes. I am familiar with some of the concepts, but otherwise am a complete novice.
