8 2/11/2019 6:12:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Yes I use Vassal, do you want to exchange files on every play,or at end of turn? Fairly easy to keep up with occasional update?
7 2/11/2019 5:33:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Hi Michael...yes, we have played a number of times...and I believe I lost every time we played...

Anyway, the historical scenario works for me...I normally don't like the OOS warnings...but not a show stopper for me...so we can use...

Are we exchanging files on VASSAL?

Good luck and good playing...I'll bid 1 to play the Allies...Larry

Odd I bid first even you bid first after agreeing to rule options
5 2/10/2019 4:00:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message I also like to play with OOS warning for movement only. No OOS warnings for retreat or advance after combat.
4 2/10/2019 2:48:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message 5.7 Historical Scenario Rules Refined over hundreds of playings, the historical scenario is a finely balanced match suitable for competitive and organized matches. The new “Deluxe” map uses the historical scenario conditions and these rules are aligned with the historical scenario used in tournaments. 5.7.1 Set Up Changes • Add a CP level 1 trench in Strasbourg. • Remove the AP level 1 trench in Brussels.
• Add AP level 1 trenches in Verona, Asiago, Maggiore, and Udine.
3 2/10/2019 2:45:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Larry I believe we have played some game before.

I am in the Atlanta area and can typically move about every day. I am good with the suggested Tourney setup option.

1 2/10/2019 2:05:00 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
