Mentor Game 18-May-15 GAME STARTED

Postby drnomeansyes » 17 May 2015, 01:44

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 May 18th, 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.

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.

You may want to click through the Guides pages on the website. The Quick Start will get you going.

To join a game follow these steps:

1) Go to the "Games" tab from the home page and then click the "Join Games" sub-tab

2) You can scroll through and find the game from there, but it is easier to enter the game number in the search box and hit search - that will bring the game right up

3) Enter the password and click join game. The game will disappear from "Join Games" and now appear under "My Pending Games" in the "Game" tab for you

4) Because it can sometimes take games awhile to fill, there is also confirmation step that begins AFTER the last player has joined to make sure everyone can still play when the time comes. You will see the "My Pending Games" light up when it is ready for you to confirm. Once all 7 players have BOTH joined AND confirmed, the game begins.
