10 2/12/2019 8:29:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message We'll need to switch sides; I will switch the CP to you and then you will need to log in as AP and switch AP to me. Don't forget to then exit ACTS and log in again as the AP before you draw cards!

Good luck!
9 2/12/2019 8:28:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Hi Peter,
I accept your bid for the AP and all your game conventions are fine as well.

Thanks for the background, sounds like you have a desk job like me but at least you originally did something a bit more exciting! I'm pretty much a landlubber now with even my vacation attempts at being on the sea being greeted with nausea - probably need to fill up with dramamine!

Anyway, let's go create some history!
8 2/12/2019 4:16:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message Forgot to mention: I am 53 as well, so we are not only experienced in POG but in the greatest game called "Life"as well.
7 2/12/2019 1:49:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message And I use cyberboard and a brand new POG De Luxe board at my desk. Tried Vassal but somehow if I try to install it I get an error message.
6 2/12/2019 1:47:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message I would like the usual things, but we already know them: first dieroll is for attacker, 2nd for the defender. Defender always rolls the dices so that he could check if an attack is legitimate. OOS warnings are appreciated. But we both play long enough to know these.

Hmmm, let's see. I will bid 0 for AP.
5 2/12/2019 1:44:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message Hi Tom, I live in the Netherlands, near Rotterdam, married, 2 children as well. I used to be inlandskipper (traveling the Rhine and it's siderivers up and down with my 1400 tons ship (all kinds of bulkcargo f.e coal, grain, ore etc.). Twenty years ago I sold our vessel wanting to buy an even bigger and younger ship, then I was offered a job at my insurance company and since then I am a nautical claim handler.
4 2/11/2019 9:20:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message And the first bid is yours.

Hi Peter,
I can't remember if we've played before but I know you're experienced so I'm confident we'll have a good game.

Background info on myself: I'm based near Philadelphia, GMT -5. Generally have quick turn-around and will alert you if I'm going to ever be AWOL for more than a couple days. Married, 53, two kids, Pharma industry IT.

As far as our match goes, I use VASSAL but generally don't exchange files. I view the ACTS log as authoritative and don't mind resynching as needed. I'm ok with supply warnings and last round MO warnings. Does that work for you?

Regardless, rolling to see who bids first, 1-3 you bid first, otherwise I do.

1 2/11/2019 8:01:00 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 the UK (GMT 0) and will generally respond to all match questions within 24 hours. I strongly recommend you e-mail me directly at "paulhubbard@hotmail.co.uk" 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 gregorit@yahoo.com).

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 Tom 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!

Paul Hubbard
