Mentor Game 24 Aug: King of the Sandbox II (Game Started)

Postby Guns of Brixton » 16 Aug 2015, 23:34

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 17th, 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 24-August mentor game.

The information for our current mentor game is below:

status: game started (7/7 players) albeit NMR protected...

Game No.: 106481
Game Name: King of the Sandbox II
Country selection: preferences (means you can enter your 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices and system assigns randomly but based on maximising preferences)
Deadlines: 2/1/1 (movement/retreats/builds, in days)

Your mentor will be: Guns of Brixton

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.

The priority players have been messaged and have another day to sign up. After that any spots will be filled first come - first served so I'll message you both with the password. If you don't make this game (and it's likely that you will indeed make it) you'll be on the priority list for next week.

What I'll do is tomorrow evening I'll open it to as many slots are left unfilled for those of you that have posted here. E.g. If there are 3 slots still unfilled I'll email 3 of you the password. After 12 hours further I'll keep going down the list.
