Mentor Game 6 April 2015 - started (again)

Postby JonS » 31 Mar 2015, 05:07

Hello all! My name is Jon, and I'm honored to be your host for this week's Mentor Game. To sign up, PM me or just reply to this thread!

What is a mentor game?
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!
