Mentor game 03-Apr-17 (started)

Postby rd45 » 24 Mar 2017, 23:40

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 03-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.

Information on our current mentor game below:

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 any open spots that are caused by surrenders in our mentor 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.

password is already out to the priority list - sign up below for a place on the waiting list - I'll share the password in a couple of days, assuming there are still places available - you'll get priority for next week's game if this one is full

I'd be interested in playing a mentored game. I am on the priority list as "cplato". Thanks.

Please move Gavrilo Princip to the bottom of the vet list. He is one of my games.

It seems to me that the only way to play is by signing up for the premium $25 upgrade. Is this true? Is there no free diplomacy online game here?

No that is not true. Any standard Diplomacy game is free. Premium membership opens up the availability of variants.
