6 7/4/2019 2:04:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Hi Rich,
I use vassal,so sending files are ok.
Dont think that we can use optional cards in tournament,never hear about their use here. We use and like them very much in casual play in ,,live" games. Regarding scenario, yes historical WBC variant.
5 7/3/2019 8:07:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Hi Nemanja,

Thanks for kicking things off. I am on the US East Coast, so six hours behind you.

Before we get started, just to confirm that we are going to use the "WBC Historical Variant (2013)" in the Vassal module.

Do you want to exchange Vassal game files as we play? Or just rely on the game log?

Also, do you have any interest in using the optional cards? (I don't recall a discussion on the tournament website of why we are not using them.)

Looking forward to another game.

1 6/25/2019 9:29:00 PM August 1914 Moderator Message Welcome to Round Two 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 June 26th, 2019 but feel free to start your match immediately. Round 2 concludes on Wednesday, October 30, 2019; you'll have 126 days this round.

Contacting me: I am based in Philadelphia (US EST, GMT -5) and will generally respond to all match questions within 24 hours. I strongly recommend you e-mail me directly at "gregorit@yahoo.com" 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 paulhubbard@hotmail.co.uk). If I am going to be unavailable for more than 48 hours, I will alert you ahead of time.

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 Paul 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!

Tom Gregorio
