Mentor Games are Closed: Happy Thanksgiving!

Postby WHSeward » 16 Nov 2015, 20:17

We are taking a two week break from games for the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday.
Our next game is scheduled to start 7-Dec.


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.

Your mentor will be: JonS

Priority New Players for the Dec-7 game:
Alberich10025
SarvanGill13
Ender756

New Signups (Dec-14 priority list):

Priority New 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 the enough players 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 veteran standby list.

Hello, loved to play the board game years ago and am now thrilled to have found the PlayDip site. Would like to get started with a mentored game.

Hey! I would love it if you could add me to the mentor games after the break. Played the board game once and would love to try and get into the online one.

Hi,

I would like to enter a mentor game when one becomes available.

While I have played the board game (a long time ago) I am new to this website.

Any advice that you can provide would be most welcome.

Thanks,
Shannon

Hi! Haven't played the online version ever, and haven't played the board one for a while, so when I joined a game, I realized I am a bit out of my depth. So, I think a mentoring game would be a good idea, so I would appreciate if you could sign me up. Thanks.
