20 11/7/2019 8:03:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message Anyway hope to see you at the next WBC.

Likewise
19 11/7/2019 8:03:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message 4) I like a friendly game so if one misstates the com bat odds I do not roll it but notify my opponent of the error, rather than roll the combat - would you like to play that way?

Fine with me

I usually have defender roll in any case
18 11/7/2019 8:02:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message 3) OOS notices - Would you like to use them? The usual definition is that notice is given when one can put units OOS by movement only. To speed things up I usually have a player be allowed to redo move if he rolls the dice for trenches if he puts himself in an OOS position (speeds up play), but if one rolls the combat one is stuck with it.

Ok with me
17 11/7/2019 8:02:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message 2) Its a good idea to swap files - I have included the start file for our game (correct scenario)

I don't like Vassal that much unfortunately

Happy to use Cyberboard or post OOB every turn or so
16 11/7/2019 8:01:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message 1) Good luck and have fun.

You too

1 11/4/2019 7:50:00 PM August 1914 Moderator Message Welcome to Round Three 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 November 7th, 2019 but feel free to start your match immediately. Round 1 concludes on March 5th, 2020 you'll have 120 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
