3 11/6/2019 9:44:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message Hi George! sorry for the delay, been a busy Fall

Hello

I'm George, I'm located in Wisconsin (GMT-6). I have no expectations regarding the pace - we all have other duties. Whenever I am able to log and play - I do that. It's very rare situation me being unable to log in at least once a day.

Scenario - default? HISTORICAL ok?

OOS warnings - yes, following the Player guidelines? YES, OOS warnings

PBEM tool - do you want to exchange files? I never did that as ACTS log is binding. In critical situation print screen and re-tracking ACTS log should suffice.

Yeah I'm fine each keeping track on vassal or cyberboard without sharing

I can probably play fairly quickly, though no more than a card or two a day and mostly in the evening after I return from work

1 11/4/2019 8:03:00 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
