Mentor Game 13-Mar-17 - Game Started

Postby JonS » 13 Mar 2017, 21:04

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 13-Mar, 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.

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.

Re: Mentor Game 13-Mar-17 - Taking Signups! (1 of 7)

I am new to Diplomacy and would like to sign up.

I have already signed up for 128136 Make Europe, but that was several days ago and there still have not been sufficient players to start the game. I assume I can play the mentor game, as well as in 128136?

Thanks

Thanks DSR! Have you on the list. We'd be happy to have you in a game. The priority list (people who didn't make it in to last week's game) have a few more hours to join the game, but by this afternoon I'll open it up and send you (and any other new signups) the password to join.

We should get going soon.

Thanks for your interest!

I'd love to get into a mentor game. Played the original board game back in the 80's but need a major refresher. Excited to see this site!

I would also like to put my name up, since it looks like there is still space available.
This would be my first game of diplomacy ever, but I think I'm familiar enough with everything to keep up.

The game is now first come, first served! We have three spots remaining that will go to the first three players that sign up. To get the password, reply here or PM me directly.

Join now!

If you are interested in a mentor game but don't make it in this game, I'll add you to the priority list for next week's game.

I have never played this game before, and I would like to observe an experienced player who can introduce me to Dimplomacy.

Hope I am writing on the right thread and that it wont be too long, before I can join at mentor game.

I've started a thread for the next game. You're on the priority list there, so you'll get a spot if you want one. Keep an eye on your PM inbox for an invitation.
