Mentor Game 4-May-15: STARTED

Postby rick.leeds » 03 May 2015, 14:17

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 4th May, 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 next mentor game. Because I've been called-up early, the game is late getting organised. We'll start as soon as we can.

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.

Look at that - my first Mentor Game in ages and I make the first mess-up.

I've sent you a PM Sind12, and I apologise for somehow missing you off the list or Priority players. Don't know how I missed copy and pasting your name :oops:

Well, I'm impressed by this. The first seven players all confirmed quickly and the game is underway already!

The six Priority Players from this week were part of a group of 13 players, so I urge the next Mentor to keep these players as a Priority Group along with new sign-ups for Mentor Games this week.

Thanks to the players in the game for making starting it so easy!
