38 2/14/2019 10:46:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message To avoid any ambiguity: is the advance to Brussels or Cambrai?

12 2/11/2019 4:40:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message i used to exchange logs - but recently have been playing with folks that dont - and seems to work ok - on occassion have to synch or send vassal file - i guess we could share the same file on dropbox - the only issue there is i keep notes in my vassal - though i think theres a private box? or i can keep notes outside - but im fine with not sharing too
11 2/11/2019 3:21:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message I guess I should confirm that I'm happy to play with supply warnings.

One more set-up query: do you want to exchange Vassal logs by e-mail/dropbox?

10 2/11/2019 1:56:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message That means that I'm AP, you're CP, and no VP adjustments are made? Sure, I accept.

I guess that means we don't need to trouble the GM to reassign the roles, so I think you can go ahead to draw cards and roll MOs.

3 2/10/2019 3:57:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Hello!

I'm new to playing over ACTS (in the past I've played PBEM using Vassal only), but hopefully won't get myself into too much trouble. I would probably prefer to stick to the defaults concern scenario, supply warnings etc, but let me know if you have any other preferences.

I'm happy to start the game pretty much straight away, but might not play very quickly the first week. After that I should manage a couple of moves per day, but I guess that may also depend a bit on time zones (I'm in GMT.)

I look forward to the carnage ;)

Best wishes,

Johannes

1 2/10/2019 1:49:00 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
