5 2/15/2019 12:36:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message My name is Kristian, and I live in Copenhagen Denmark. Due to work and kids, I am generally play in the late evenings CET.
4 2/15/2019 12:35:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Also I agree with the suggestion to play with supply warnings :D.
3 2/15/2019 12:34:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Hi Andy!
Sounds good. I suggest that we keep WBC rules from the tournament page https://www.bitterwoods.net/paths-of-glory-bpa-tourney-page/

Should we roll 50/50 for first bidder?

2 2/12/2019 4:51:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Hi Kristian,

I have family over for the next 10 days or so won't really be able to play. But we can sort out sides, agree rules etc in the meantime if you like.

1 2/10/2019 12:38:00 PM August 1914 Moderator Message Welcome to Round One of the BPA VII Paths of Glory Tournament!

I'll be your game moderator and should be your first point of contact for any issues related to this match. As always, the priority should be for a fun and fair match for all involved. The official launch date for this round is February 14th, 2019 but feel free to start your match immediately. Round 1 concludes on Wednesday, June 19, 2019; you'll have 125 days this round.

Contacting me: I am based in Philadelphia (US EST, GMT -5) and will generally respond to all match questions within 24 hours. I strongly recommend you e-mail me directly at "gregorit@yahoo.com" referencing your match # when you do so. If I do not respond within 48 hours, please escalate to one of the other GMs (mdauer92@yahoo.com or paulhubbard@hotmail.co.uk). If I am going to be unavailable for more than 48 hours, I will alert you ahead of time.

Issue Resolution: If either player has a concern about a particular ruling or resolution I make, feel free to raise it to the other GMs. I will also reach out to Paul and Michael if there's something I'm not sure of. Please remember that the ACTS logs are viewable for all, direct e-mail exchanges with your opponent are obviously permitted but GMs will view the ACTS logs as the authoritative record of the game.

Getting Started:
Here are my thoughts on how to get the match started:
- Introduce yourselves and set expectations regarding your availability and game pace.
- Agree on the scenario. The default is the WBC Historical Scenario as described on the POG Tournament Page and I strongly recommend its usage.
- Agree on usage of supply warnings. They are strongly recommended.
- There is no mandatory usage of a particular PBEM tool. VASSAL is recommended but not necessary and exchanging game logs is also optional.
- Bid for sides. (Initial bidder is to be random, one of you should just roll a die with a 50-50 shot of that player bidding first. Switch sides in ACTS if necessary, contact me if you need help with this.
- Draw cards. CP will then kick off the fun by rolling the turn 1 MO and playing their first card.

Have fun!

Tom Gregorio
