44 2/15/2019 4:08:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message It looks like Jeff is OK with this as well. I think we just weren't on the same page as to what should constitute an OOS warning. I have been out of the game for a while and wasn't sure what the standard convention is.

I will rewind my board and let's continue from there.

Thanks guys!
43 2/15/2019 12:03:00 PM August 1914 Moderator Message Guys - relooking at the details of this game, and I believe we should back up.

You both agreed to use supply warnings.

In msg 28, a GEc was SRíd to Breslau. This created an OOS threat to Lomza, which was not identified at the time. The subsequent move included putting Lomza OOS.

Putting Ivangorod OOS via combat is perfectly legal, but the risk to Lomza should have been identified before being actioned. I strongly suggest backing up to that point, allowing the AP player to react to the Lomza supply threat, and proceed from there.

As you obviously both know, plenty of time until the next round and you'll both be advancing to it.

38 2/14/2019 11:51:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message Sure, gladly play some more so we stay sharp.

Iíll set it up with same sides and rules.
37 2/14/2019 1:15:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message It was the GEc to Breslau that I overlooked. I even considered moving out of Lomza before your SR there, but I wanted to keep the pressure on Konigsberg. Shows how rusty I am with AP, the last 4 games I've played I've been bid into playing CP.

Since the next round is quite a ways off, care to re-rack a friendly game for more practice?

I worked at UM for 5 years a decade ago, now I work for the VA hospital here.
36 2/13/2019 10:45:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message The Lomza OOS was an oversight on both our parts. I didn't realize I could have done that from my current position. I had planned on the Lublin attack,but had not seen the Lomza situation until that moment.
35 2/13/2019 10:02:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Thank you, but I am sorry to see this end so quickly.

The tournament is double elimination, so you are still in it.

BTW: do you work for University of Michigan with your being in Ann Arbor ?

34 2/13/2019 9:49:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Upon further consideration, I think the side is lost. Those armies are perma gone and the East without defense. I concede. Masterful killing stroke!

Good game, and good luck going further in the Tourney!
33 2/13/2019 9:42:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Wow, well played. I did not see that OOS possibility, bad mistake on my part. I suppose the warnings are only after moves or advances, not SR plays. DOH!

Unlikely that I can recover from that, but I will trod on for a bit.

I am also on EST, logging in from Ann Arbor, Michigan. Looks like we are all in agreement re: rules of engagement. So let's proceed.

I will start bidding at 0 VPs for the AP.

Normally, due to work, I can only log in during the evening, but for the tourney I will bring my laptop to work to try and speed along play.

Good luck and may fortune favor the bold!

5 2/11/2019 1:08:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Hello Marc !

We have played before, but it has been many years.

Yes, the WBC variant is what we shall play, it is the best of the scenarios that have come to pass.

I am on EST of the USA and can make a couple of moves a day for most days, so we shouldn't have any issues with slow play. OOS warnings are always welcomed by movement alone. I keep my own board so my email does not get over loaded or over looked. I enjoy friendly,competitive games, best of luck to you !

Over to you fine sir for your opening bid.
4 2/11/2019 12:29:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Ok, Looks like I bid first. Do you agree to play WBC Historical scenario?

I also prefer to use supply warnings, is that ok as well?

My time zone is UTC-5 and I try to play multiple times per day.

Thanks for playing! Good luck!

1 2/10/2019 2:07:00 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
