4 8/10/2019 2:17:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Dani, OK we will go with cyberboard and no exchange of action files. OOS warnings for movement but not for action. That is what is usually played. I do not know what Tom has set up in terms of expansion cards.
I will roll for who makes the 1st bid.
3 8/10/2019 1:15:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Hello Barrington!!

IŽm a 45 years old, architect from Santander in Spain. I have a medium level and I want to train prior to Round3.

I use cyber board as well. I tend to play quite fast. If both are connected I play one turn a day sometimes.

I prefer to play after 20:00 till 23.00, during weekend I have more time even.

Sending every Round a file to you, looks a little bit exhausting, I can live with mistakes even more in a friendly game. When there is an error, it is negotiated, fixed, and game continues.

There are moments in the games that you know what to do, and simply send the movement by the phone...

If I have to make a file every round I would be slower.

On top of it, I like to have the cards prepared over the CB map and lots of markers drawing my intentions for future rounds...

So IŽll have to have two files...

Said this, If Its a must, I can live with it. But I prefer speed over accuracy.

About the game. As I want to train for tournament, I would stay in the typical format: Historical, biding VPs, no expansion cards, warnings Ok.


2 8/10/2019 9:05:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message Dani, we need to do some basics.
1. I prefer using cyberboard but can use vassal.
2. I have a definite preference for log files as I find both I and my opponents do make errors. It certainly keeps me on the staight and narrow.
3. OOS warnings as a result of movement but not combat as that can be uncertain.
4. Anything else you want to raise.
We will need to toss for sides.
I am in UK and where are you?

1 8/10/2019 7:47:00 AM August 1914 Moderator Message Gentlemen - Both of you indicated an intent to get more POG in while Round 2 plods on. You are both experienced and in the same time zone so I have no doubt that this will be a competitive, and brisk, match. =)

Feel free to reach out to me directly if you have any questions!
Regards,
Tom
