Mentor Game 2 Mar 15 - Game Started

Postby JonS » 24 Feb 2015, 04:42

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 directly. This game is slated to begin on March 2nd, but we will start before then if we get a full roster. If you sign up this week but do not get a spot, you will be given priority in the 9-Mar mentor game.

The information for our current mentor game is below:

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.

Hello, I'd like to sign up! Currently just beginning my first mentor game (and first game ever) in Spring 01 but I figure if I have 2x games going it will go easier to pick it up.

Thanks
Luminous

We are filling up quickly but still have room for more! If you are new to the game, and think you could benefit from trying out a game with active coaching and a field of fellow beginners, feel free to sign up. You can respond to this thread or PM me directly.

Looking forward to getting going! We are looking to have a great group.

I Love Italy is temporarily unavailable as a standby. I cycled him to the bottom of the list. While I was at it, I moved fidelis too.
