Mentor Game - Late Nov 2017 - GAME NOW STARTED

Postby Bravo Papa Alpha » 21 Nov 2017, 14:48

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 & provide encouragement. Any player that thinks they might benefit from a teaching game is welcome.

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 a while and would like some pointers?
All are welcome. We ask only that you commit to seeing the game through to completion, because leaving a game partway through disrupts the experience for the remaining players. The duration of Diplomacy games can vary widely, but you can expect to be in the game for about two months if you do well. Should unforeseen life circumstances mean you need to quit, please let us know a.s.a.p. so that we can line up a replacement, rather than abandoning the game without notice.

If you are interested in playing, either reply in this thread or use the site PM system to contact me. This game is scheduled to begin on 27-Nov, but we will start whenever we get a full set of seven players. If you sign up on this thread but don't get a place, you will get priority in the next mentor game.

Information on our current mentor game below...

The priority list consists of previous signups who haven't yet had a chance to play in a mentor game. They (along with the enough players from this thread's new signups list to fill the board) will get a two-day priority window to join this game before the password is sent out to all new signups.

Veteran players fill open spots from any 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. Mentors do not play in their own game.

I am having trouble sending PMs at the moment, they are all just stuck in my outbox, so as the priority deadline has passed, I will now just post the password here and it will be first come first served. There are two places left.

Password is: elephant

Jagman11: I will add you to the list if you don't make this one.

Good luck all,

BPA

Hi there,

I am interested to join a mentor game. It will be my first time to play this game.
I am an experienced boardgame player, but Diplomacy still is on my bucket list.

Waiting for further instruction...

Kind regards,
Sander
