Mentor Game 03 August 2015 - Game Started

Postby JonS » 29 Jul 2015, 04:46

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 August 3rd, 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 10-August mentor game.

The information for our current mentor game is below:

status: In Confirmation.

Game No.: 105774
Game Name: This is the Place
Deadlines: 2/1/1 (movement/retreats/builds, in days)

Your mentor will be: JonS

Participants:

UNAG TCHUNG R1

FindingNemo
gwenifyre

New Signups (next game's priority list):

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.

Please add BULBUL to the priority list. The player had contacted me directly by PM.

We are at four players - just looking for three more and we can get rolling.

Mentored games are a great experience for players who are new to Diplomacy, new to the site, or are looking to gain experience and advice in a controlled, coached, fun setting. Please sign up if you're interested! We should be able to get going shortly.
