46 2/19/2019 1:50:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Sorry Charles; ignore that. Wrong game.
45 2/19/2019 1:49:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Agree. Time is the Allies second enemy and I ran out of it. You took the Axis far into Russia and conceded no penalty points regarding VPs held in Winter 42,43,44. Slowing the Allies in Africa also prevented me getting the ball rolling in Italy and the West. I lost some focus in the East, especially in the south. Too many low cards in the last two turns hurt as well.

I'll set up if you wish? Let's see if you can find a way to break the trend.
44 2/19/2019 12:52:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Event #8: 3 / Race to the Sea

CP always first roll.
14 2/16/2019 4:05:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message Hi Charles.

I always roll attacker first, regardless of typing errors.
Also, I hope you agree to OOS warnings?

With regard to the Historical Scenario, it's been some time since I played PoG. Am I correct in assuming Ahwaz,Venice,Jerusalem,Kharput and Minsk are no longer VP spaces. Instead, Kovno,Sedan,Amiens,Koblenz,Aachen are VP spaces?
13 2/15/2019 10:25:00 PM August 1914 Moderator Message All sorts of confusion here. But all sorted now?

2 2/13/2019 11:04:00 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
