Who starts bidding:
1 - Carl
2 - George
6 2/16/2019 9:49:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message WBC Historical Scenario - to be exact (I dunno if wbc 2013 as in vassal is inexchangable)

And my name is Carl by the way :) ! I guess we will bid before starting properly?
5 2/16/2019 9:48:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Thanks to you Paul for helping moderating. :)

Hello! I am GMT +1 in Sweden, I have evenings monday-saturday free. So I interpret it as we will go past trying to set gaming sessions and play orders as they go :) !


WBC 2013 - scenario Yes!
OOS - Yes, I always play with OOS warnings as recommended to avoid games being quickly finished due to basing info on unsynced map or just an innocent mistake etc. :)

I am okay with not sending vassal files but will of course give them when requested :) !


Ready to play when you are
4 2/14/2019 August 1914 Central Powers Message Hello!

So let's start with introduction - I'm George, I live in Wisconsin, so it's central time (GNT -6). February might be tough for me since I have exam at the end of the month and now I'm traveling a lot, but I always have my computer. But 100% I will not be able to sit for few hours and make 4-5 turns :-)
Scenario - WBC Historical?
As for OOS - as you wish. I always played in my club without OOS, so either way.
I don't think it necessary to send Vassal files (which is a polite way to say that I don't know how to do this - I'm used to CyberBoard :-). Entries in the ACTS journal are the ultimate source.

And Paul - thank you guys for doing all this, I really appreciate it. I know how hard is for me to find sometime a moment to play one game between kids and work, so I cannot even imagine how you are able to manage all of those games :-)

2 2/12/2019 8:03:00 AM 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
