Mentor game 13-Nov-17, game started

Postby rd45 » 06 Nov 2017, 21:43

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 13-Nov, 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.

The priority list consists of previous signups who haven't yet had a chance to play in a mentor game. They (along with the enough players from this thread's new signups list to fill the board) will get a two-day priority window to join this game before the password is sent out to all new signups.

Veteran players fill open spots from any 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.

Hey, I'm Wolfgang Forrest and I would love to have a mentored game. I get the gist of the rules, but I'd love to have little nuance too before I join the bloodbath.
Looking forward to playing.

I see that this game near filled up. I would love to join it!

If not, I would love to join the next mentor game. My username is BayekHydra.

I have been reading up on the different openings, but it is a little confusing and I would love to have an experienced player to coach me through it all.
