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 19-Feb, 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.

To sarge57:

Adjacent units cannot swap places without the use of a convoy - they bounce each other otherwise. If you are concerned about a particular set of orders functioning the way you want, I'd suggest using the orders solver function that the site has. It allows you to test what the move adjudication software will rule for a given set of orders.

If you have more questions, feel free to ask away. You and others on the new signup list will receive the password for the game in a day or two if spots remain, and if you join the game I can answer all of the questions you'd like!
