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.

Mentor Game 06-Jul-15 started

Postby WHSeward » 02 Jul 2015, 02:17

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 July 6th, 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 13-July 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.

Welcome new players! I'm looking forward to hosting my first mentoring game: "King of the Sandbox" (game number 104830). If you're interested in playing please send me a PM and I'll send you the password. We'll kick off as soon as we get a full slate of 7 players.

Please only sign up if you're committed to playing for the entire game no matter how ugly things might get for your country. The game can last 3 to 4 weeks (or sometimes longer) but doesn't require a huge time commitment as each player has up to 48 hours to enter orders for a movement turn and 24 hours for the relatively straight-forward build and retreat turns. Of course, besides entering orders communicating with fellow players is highly encouraged but you each can decide how much time you devote to that.

I will be available every step of the way to answer questions about the rules, tactics (without revealing privileged information or giving biased advice, of course - I am neutral after all!) and encourage you all to check with me when you have written your orders to ensure that they are accurate and viable. The goal here is to cut through some of the confusing idiosyncrasies of the game and of the site that may impede your ability to learn and enjoy the game so that we can continue to add more devoted members to this community. (Don't worry, we're not a cult and we won't be asking you to pledge more than 30% of your liquid assets over to the cause for at least a year... ;) )

So step up to the plate, put your name down here and send me a PM. Let's get this road on the show!
