5 2/15/2019 9:01:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message Hello, Eastcoast US time zone.
Due to virus issues in the past getting infected cyberboard files I never exchange boards.
Historical with OOS warnings is fine.
Usually a fairly fast pace on my end, unless there is a vacation break for a trip or something similar. We can roll/bid for sides and start anytime that you like.
4 2/15/2019 8:30:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Carl:
Just checking in on preferences so we can get started.
3 2/11/2019 10:18:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Hi, Carl. Good luck. I hope to give you a little challenge, but POG's not one of my better games.

I prefer historical scenario, with supply warnings.
I can use either vassal or cyberboard.
As to exchanging files. I find it can be useful if you do so thru dropbox, with .gmv files. But I can be flexible.

1 2/11/2019 8:34:00 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
