44 7/8/2019 10:12:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message correct on both

43 7/7/2019 2:52:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message To clarify, (BEF) goes to Ostend (not Attend ; )

Also, the FRC in CT is not reduced as the Withdrawal card that you played flips it back to full. So, you have a FRC in CT.
42 7/7/2019 12:58:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message lets change that
(BEF) to Attend
(FRC) from C-T to Melun

OK

41 7/6/2019 7:41:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Can you clarify which French army moves to Melun? The FR 1st army in Nancy is not reduced. Do you mean the reduced 6th from Paris or the reduced 9th from Bar le Duc?

Please let me know - thanks!
40 7/6/2019 7:21:00 PM August 1914 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #4: 2 / Pleve

Message from Allies:
OPS
BE1 to Brussels
(FR1) to Melun
39 7/6/2019 1:15:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Ok, advance both GE2 from Liege and GE3 from Koblenz to Sedan. Your remaining FR corps that is flipped retreats to CT and flips back to full strength from the Withdrawal card.

Over to you for your turn.
38 7/6/2019 12:53:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message successful

Message from Allies:
roll for flank attack

36 7/5/2019 1:27:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Henry, please roll for flank success/failure OR for return fire on 2A table, whichever you choose. If possible, I will advance with both armies into Sedan -- the GE2 from Liege & the GE3 from Koblenz. There is no attack coming from Metz per Guns of August event.
35 7/5/2019 12:26:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message thanks
I missed that
which army advances into Sedan?

34 7/4/2019 1:13:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Also, as an option, your roll for the attack at Sedan was a 6/5, which means that my flank would be successful, I would put 5LF on the FR army, and then you shoot back on the 2A table.

You would the retreat to CT and flip back to full.

Iím trying to be most fair here - your call on how to handle.

Thanks!
33 7/4/2019 12:50:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Henry, I donít want either one of us to get cheated here. My attack at Sedan is on the 9-11 table (not the 15A), but I also attacked as a flank attack.
If the flank is successful, then your shot has no chance of flipping one of my armies. If the flank is unsuccessful, I could never put seven on you. Iíll let you handle as you wish...
32 7/4/2019 10:09:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message 1 of your armies in Metz or Koblenz flips

4 6/29/2019 11:04:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Henry, I have a lot of travel (vacation and work) the next few weeks. With your travel for the board game conference at the end of the month, letís plan on hitting it hard in August. We have until the end of October, and I, like you, can play cards daily.

FYI, also, this is my first tournament game...so, I may be a little slow on some things.

Looking forward to it!
D.A.

1 6/24/2019 11:01:00 PM August 1914 Moderator Message Welcome to Round Two of the BPA VIII Paths of Glory Tournament!

Most have been through this before (many times now!) so you probably know what to do: I'll be your game moderator and should be your first point of contact for any issues related to this match. My overriding priority for this match is to make sure it's fun and fair for both players. That means sportsmanship is expected at all times and issues are to be resolved equitably.
Contacting the Moderator: I am in the Central USA time zone and will generally respond to all match questions within 24 hours. If you need to contact me, e-mail me directly at "mdauer92@yahoo.com" referencing your match # when you do so. ACTS does not send the moderators all posted messages and as we all have multiple games to moderate, we do not read through the logs of individual games with any regularity so direct contact is needed. Unless of a confidential nature, please ALSO CC your opponent and put your question/issue in the log and I'll make sure I post a response there as well. If I do not respond within 48 hours, please ask one of the other GMs (Tom: gregorit@yahoo.com or Paul: paulhubbard@hotmail.co.uk).
Issue Resolution: If either player has a concern about a particular ruling or resolution I make, feel free to escalate to the other GMs. I will also discuss with Tom and Michael if there's something I'm not sure of. Please remember that the ACTS logs are viewable for all, direct 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 just roll a die with a 50-50 shot of that player bidding first). Switch sides in ACTS if necessary. If you do switch sides yourselves, remember to LOG OUT of ACTS completely to avoid danger of drawing your opponent's cards.
- Draw cards. CP will then kick off the fun by rolling the turn 1 MO and playing their first card.
The official launch date for this round is Wednesday 26 June when Tom will send out a round robin to all but feel free to start your match immediately. This round is scheduled to complete on October 30, giving 126 days to complete. Please keep each other informed and if you will be offline for any extended periods, and if you fall behind schedule then some extra effort may be needed to catch up. The GMs all HATE to have to adjudicate unfinished games Ė but we will where necessary and a slow player will almost always be deemed to be the loser.

Play well, keep up the pace and, above all, Have Fun!

Michael
