Mentor Game 25-May-15 Started

Postby WHSeward » 18 May 2015, 18:40

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 25th, 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 1-June 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.

Hi there!

Never played before, only recently discovered the game after reading a couple of magazine articles about it. Would love mentor support in a game. If this one is full happy to wait till 1st June or thereafter.

Best,
Cardlinger
