One AH unit and up to 2 GE corps may stack together and be Activated for a cost of 1 OPS point. A different stack may be chosen each Action Round. If a second AH unit or a second non-GE corps unit is present, then the activation cost is 2 OPS points. This event does not supercede rule 12.1.11.

43 2/16/2019 10:34:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Actually, CC cards in general can only be used once per round, and Pleve is a discarded card, so it only gets to be used once period. So AH3 only takes 3 l.f. and flips. For me it looks like every Russian involved in combat flips. This also means that since I don't have a full-strength unit in Ivangorod that the corps in Tarnow doesn't retreat. Over to you.

18 2/11/2019 4:01:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Return Strategy card to hand #2: 2 / Wireless Intercepts

Message from Central Powers:
17 2/11/2019 1:58:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message To make sure we're on the same page, here's how we usually do combats.

As you did, if there is a flank situation then the attacker play his cards and can roll for the flank, and then roll the attack.

In a non-flank, the attacker announces the combat and plays his cards, and then the defender plays his card and then rolls.
Sometimes when it's known what's out there the attacker can just roll it all, but that's rarer.

On the non-flank combats, when the defender rolls, he always rolls the two dice, with the first one for the attacker.

Also, when there are multiple combats, always roll them in the order stated.

Agree?

1 2/10/2019 12:47:00 PM August 1914 Moderator Message Welcome to Round One of the BPA VIII 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
