Mentor Game 08-Jun-2015: Game Started

If you are new to the site, and especially if you are new to the game, this might be a good way to start some games. Mentors will help with the mechanics of the game.

I've added you to the list. It's definitely fine to have played before. In practice, we usually have a fairly wide range of experience levels.

Game notifications for sure won't come to your email before you're signed up for the game according to the site (the next step after getting on the list here). Otherwise, it depends on your account settings, and I'm afraid it's kind of complicated. There's one set of email notification options for the site itself, and you can find that by going to the Home page and then selecting "My Account." Then there's a second set of notification options for the forum, which includes the PM system. You find that by logging into the Forum (separate from logging into the site!), selecting User Control Panel (next to "X new messages"), then the Board Preferences tab. Personally, I find that getting notifications for in-game messages is too much, but the emails for PMs I find useful.

Re: Mentor Game 08-Jun-2015: Invitations Sent

I've now sent out invitations to everyone who signed up this week. Any interested players can continue to sign up in this thread. It's quite possible we'll still have space, in which case you'll get into this game. If not, you'll be on next week's priority list and get first crack at that game.

Hi. It seems I'm a bit late for this one, so I'd like to play next week :)
Have fun.

I'll add you to the priority list. And if someone pulls out at the last minute, I'll notify you of the spot, so keep an eye on your PM inbox.

Hello! I'm new and have been hearing about this game everywhere! I would love to learn how to play. Is the June 8th game full? When will you start the next mentor game and can I join? Also, I live in China will this be a problem for game play? Is this game in real time or turn-based?

Thanks!

This game has filled and started, but a new game will start filling soon. I'll put you on the Priority list for that game. Keep on eye on the Mentoring forum and on your PM inbox (the inbox you can access from the forum) for info about that game.

Diplomacy is a turn-based game, although communication is in real time. If you're in China, your timezone may be out of synch with most of the players, but it shouldn't be a major issue. The mentor games are usually run with 48-hour deadlines for major turns, which is enough time to communicate with players on the other side of the globe. Your location might be more of an issue if you try to play shorter deadline games.
