Mentor Game Dec 29, 2014 (in progress)

Postby Fatmo » 26 Dec 2014, 03:13

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 may join:

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. 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 December 29, but we will start when we get a full roster. If you sign up this week but do not get a spot, you will be given priority in next week's mentor game.

The sign up information for our current mentor games is below:

status: Waiting confirmation
Game No.: 94733
Game Name: Happy Festivus
Deadlines: 2/1/1 (movement/retreats/builds, in days)

If you are interested in playing, either reply in this thread or use the site PM system to contact me.

Priority New Players are users that were on the New Signups list for a prior game and did not have a chance to play. They (along with the enough players the New Signups list to fill the board) will get a 2-day priority window to join this game before the password will 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.

Edited standby list. Fidelis back to active. Gavrilo and Alman rotated.
