Mentor Game: Dec 4 - Sign Ups

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.

Information on our current mentor game below...

Status: signups

Game No: 137715
Game Name: Playing for Learning
Deadlines: 2/1/1 (movement/retreats/builds, in days)

Your mentor will be: Zaynation


Priority list: (players already signed up on previous mentor game threads)
Purple Brain

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.

Standby veteran players:
Gavrilo Princip

If you are still taking sign-ups, I would love to join the game, or at least be put on the list for the next one.

To clarify, even if you're on a priority list, you still need to express interest for me to send you the password.

Hey, I was on the "priority list for next game" last sign up, but I don't see my name on this one. Am I able to sign up for this one?

Hi I am completely new to this game but looking at the instructions, just regret not having to come across it until so long. I would be really grateful if I could get some mentorship.

I am simply replying so I can be added to the mentor game list for future games. I have been watching tutorials videos and reading some articles about the game as well, so if a replacement is need in other mentor games I would be willing to try and replace someone that has to leave.
