Mentor Game - April 15, 2018 - CONFIRMATION PHASE

Postby Jack007 » 07 Apr 2018, 16:43

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 15th of April, 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...

Status: signup

Game No: 143276

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.

Hooray, I was able to join! I guess being logged into the forum wasn’t the same as being logged into the main site? I was finally able to find it after I logged in again. :D

Hi, I'm Jack007, your mentor of the battle, sort of a Consilarius of the Family ;) . However, I gonna show you some aspects of the Diplomacy game, help with the interface, give tips about strategy and tactics, where to find resources, and how to communicate and behave psychologically. We may also talk about variants and other ways to play Diplomacy. And of course, I will answer all your questions. 8-)

Kimbyrle, thanks for joining. Please hold on, untill the other players have joined as well, then you will be adverted to confirm participation. We are going to have a great time. Link to game

Actually there are 6 open spots left. They will be filled within a few days, likely. Anybody who wants to play with us please leave a little post here or send me a private message. There are no conditions of admission, just consider that the game will last around 3 months, so that's approx. until early July. It is important that the players stay at the game and don't leave before the end.

So long.. see you soon

I would not mind playing in another mentor game, these things always help me improve massively, and I really need an active example of how to execute in the early game to continue improving my game.

If a game has space, contact me.

Rotsu :)

Re: Mentor Game - April 15, 2018 - CONFIRMATION PHASE

Postby Jack007 » 17 Apr 2018, 13:09

The game is now in the confirmation phase. All players joined to the game, please go to your "My Pending Games" tab and confirm your participation. Once all players have confirmed, the game will disappear from the "My Pending Games" tab, and appear at the "My Active Games" tab. There, you can click on the small map which brings up the game for playing, that is giving in your orders, communicate via private or public messages, check the game's history, and more. (The only button you should never click on, is the Surrender Button :shock: . Before you consider to do so, please first contact me by all means. Okay?)

Those who didn't make it into the game, namely XVJ96 and HotelBravo, please hold on. There might be one or another drop out during the confirmation phase, in which case the game returns to the signup phase, and you might be able to join then. If not, you are in any case put on the Priority List for the next mentor game, starting approximatively in 2 weeks (run by Macchiara). Priority players will get the password first, to make sure they get a spot. 8-)

So long.. Jack

Re: Mentor Game - April 15, 2018 - BACK IN JOINING PHASE

Postby Jack007 » 19 Apr 2018, 13:00

The game has returned to the joining phase, due to a dropout (one person did not confirm during the confirmation time).

After the vacant spot has been filled, all players are again requested to confirm. Thanx guys for your patience.
