Mentor game: April 20th (started)

Postby charliep007 » 13 Apr 2015, 08:27

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. If you are interested in playing, either reply in this thread or use the site PM system to contact charliep007. This game is slated to begin on April 20th, 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 next week's mentor game.

Note that this will be a somewhat slower game than typical for the site, with 2-day deadlines for major movement turns and 1-day deadlines for minor retreat and build turns. The longish deadlines are deliberate, so that everyone has an opportunity to learn as they go. I'll be giving you lots of material to read through if you're so inclined, so you won't lack for stuff to do! But if you're looking for a fast-paced game, this game probably won't be your speed. You can also expect the game to go on for about 2 months if you do well, so be prepared for that.

Priority New Players are users that were on the New Signups list for last week's game and did not have a chance to play. They (along with the enough players from this week's New Signups list to fill the board) will get a 2-day priority window to join this game before the password is 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. Mentors do not play in their own game. They are included on the list to keep the rotation current. If their name comes up in a game they are mentoring, they will be skipped.

STATUS UPDATE: The game is currently taking sign ups, password sent out to priority list
