New to the site! New to the game!

Hello!
YggBjorn at your service. I have never played Diplomacy. I have played Axis & Allies, Axis & Allies: D-Day, Risk, and Memoir '44 to name a few strategy board games. I currently run a D&D5e game via Fantasy Grounds VTT every Friday. I have been watching Matt Colville on YouTube and he recommended this site to learn about politics while having fun playing Diplomacy. I am looking to join a mentored game and have posted in the Mentor sub-forum.

Welcome & yes a Mentor game is a great place to start. A word of warning, 50 years ago my big brother bought me a Christmas gift of a Diplomacy board game. Some things are habit forming.... Enjoy.

Welcome to the site. I hope you stick around and try your luck in some of the stronger games. But yes, definitely try the Mentor games. You will find that most useful and in general people here will offer advice when appropriate.

Just one rule right off the bat given my above comment, do not ask for advice on the chat box or in a forum for a live game that you are in - and perhaps even if you are watching a game that is currently live (that you aren't playing in, just for clarity).
