Hello all prospective mentees! It is I, Machiara, one of your hard-working mentors, and I have taken up the task of running the January 22 mentor game.

What is a mentor game, you may ask? Mentor games are for beginners to play together and learn the basics of Diplomacy and how the website interface works with an experienced player (in this case, me) available to answer questions. 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 awhile 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 targeted to begin on 22nd of January, 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.

The sign up information for our current mentor game is below:

Game No.: 139573
Game Name: Into the Breach!
Deadlines: 2 days for orders, 1 day for retreats, 1 day for builds

I will be sending out passwords in a couple of days.

Priority New Players (will receive invite this game):
Dray888dyoc
AppleSavannah
CromCruach
Kamato
Philip Darlim
Willie23
Dahyun the tofu

First-come, first-served players (will receive invite in listed order should a priority player not join the game or confirm promptly, and will be priority players for the February 5 mentor game led by jay6553):

Personally I'm always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught.

No idea is so outlandish that it should not be considered with a searching but at the same time a steady eye.

I have sent all the priority players a DM, so if you are a priority player and are still interested in participating in a mentor game please respond. If you do not respond by end of the day tomorrow I will begin contacting players on the first-come first-serve list.

I would like to join this game on the 22nd if possible. If not, I will be happy to wait for the next mentor game. This would be my first time playing ever. Thank you very much for your time.

I would be interested in this game, and failing that, any upcoming mentored game - it would be my first.

Have added you two to the FCFS list. I'm not getting a lot of response from the priority group, so keep an eye on your inbox, I may be sending you an invite tomorrow.
