Mentor game 7-Sept-15 Game #2 in confirmation

Postby JonS » 31 Aug 2015, 19:35

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 September 7th, 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 14-Sept mentor game.

Due to high demand, we will run 2 games this week. The information for our current mentor games is below:

Priority 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 enough players from 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 Standby Veteran list.

I've started a few games so far but could do with some pointers :)
This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.

Like Yanitch I think that although I've done a few I would still benefit from a mentor game. :)

Russia is a great nation, Warrior! You're in from the get go with negotiation aplenty. I would heartily recommend Russia. That, and it's randomly allocated!

Still happy to be on the backup list but 'veteran' is generous, since I am only into my third game...

Best,

Hi Hindu Warrior - the countries are assigned randomly. And don't worry - all countries have strengths and weaknesses. Learning how to handle those strengths and weaknesses is what coaching is for! :)

Have added you to the list.
