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 9-Nov-15 started

Postby WHSeward » 04 Nov 2015, 19:15

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 Nov. 9th, 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 16-Nov mentor game.

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.

Count me in--always wanted to play, never had people around. Sounds like a great place to learn. Thanks!

The game is targeted to start on Monday. The first turn will last 4 days, then orders will be 2 days with retreats and builds lasting 1 day. You should be able to participate whatever timezone you are in.
