34 2/17/2019 1:02:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message I got home and I've checked things out. You've mistaken my attack. I attacked Belgrade, not K-P. Here were the written orders I sent, see Entry 26.

M: AHc Czernowitz -> Tarnopol -> Lemberg
M: AH3 Tarnopol -> Stanislaw
A: AHc Timisvar -> Belgrade
A: AH5 Novi Sad -> Belgrade

The roll results are still the same, except SB1 is reduces in Belgrade and AH5 in Novi Sad is reduced.

It seems like you didn't play through the entirety of the log file. I've sent the orders, as well as the post-battle update.

19 2/13/2019 11:00:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message WBC historical

Historical POG - per the GMT website
-- The CP Player must open with Guns of August as an Event.
-- The Entrench card may not be played as an Event on Turn 1.
-- Only Austrian and Italian armies may operate in Italy (move, attack, or advance into any space in Italy) and no German armies may end their movement (using OPS or SR) in Trent, Villach or Trieste until the start of a turn at which the AP is at Total War. We are not using the GMT rules which require both CP and AP to be at Total War.
-- The following cards may double as OPS when played as Events:


Landships
Zimmermann Telegram
Over There
Tsar Takes Command
Fall of the Tsar
Bolshevik Revolution
-- If the game ends with an Armistice or at the end of turn 20, add one VP for each US Army not currently on the map or in the deadpile.
-- If the game ends with an Armistice or at the end of turn 20, subtract two VP if the Tsar has not fallen.
-- Use the optional 8 card-hand.
-- First turn only a British MO = French MO

18 2/13/2019 7:32:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Can you point me to where in the rules BR gets switched to FR for T1 MO?

Thanks

3 2/10/2019 7:37:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Hi Henry (and Matt),

I'm US East Coast time (Rochester, NY). I work from home, so I should be able to get in a AR a day, if not more than one.

For our game, I am in favor of the WBC Historical Scenario and having Supply Warnings.

I am all in favor of VASSAL. I am well versed in setting up GoogleDrive/Dropbox/OneDrive/Box.com shared folders and sharing the board that way. It's worked well for me in the past. If you use one, I'm happy to meet your need there.

I'll let you respond and you can roll the die for bidding.

On a related note, I will be out of town this Wednesday to Sunday. I may bring my laptop with me and would be able to take a turn in the evening... but family vacation comes first. =)

Good Luck!

Thanks,
Chris

1 2/10/2019 1:39:00 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 Texas (US CST, GMT -6) and will generally respond to all match questions within 24 hours. I strongly recommend you e-mail me directly at "mdauer92@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 (gregorit@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 Tom 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!

Michael Dauer
