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 the remaining players. The duration of Diplomacy games can vary widely, but the game is likely to continue 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 7-Aug, but we will start whenever we get a full set of seven players. If you sign up this week but don't get a spot, you will get priority in the next mentor game.

Information on our current mentor game below...

--list has moved here

New signups on this thread: (will be added to priority list for the next game)
--list has moved here

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 two-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.

We have quite a long priority list of players who signed up on previous mentor game threads. I'll send the password to those players first - first come first served. For anyone else who's interested - feel free to add your name below, and if there are places available in this week's game, you'll be next in line. If not, you'll be on the priority list for the next game.

Players twoodley1280, Jcowboy and bob the human are all on the waiting list. Thanks for your interest!

Unfortunately the game is back in recruitment after a player failed to confirm. I have a reserve list of players who missed out on a slot earlier, so I'll work through the reserves in order of arrival until I find a new seventh player.

Anyone arriving here who's interested in a future mentor game should continue to add their names - you'll be included in the priority list for the next game. Thanks!

edit: we're back up to seven players, and waiting for confirmations...
further edit: game 133338 has now started

OH COME ON! Why is the whole confirmation thing even necessary? And if you schedule a game for August 7th, start it that day. RD, if we cross paths again, I will make sure everyone knifes you, including YOU.

Did you miss the part in the OP when I said "This game is scheduled to begin on 7-Aug, but we will start whenever we get a full set of seven players"? You were first to join the game, and the only one of seven who failed to confirm. There's a reason why you're no longer on the priority list. Please, don't waste any more of my time.
