6 11/6/2019 1:38:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Looks like you have the allies with a bid of 1. I will leave you to change the sides while I am off to chess. I do not expect to get into my stride until Monday.

I am going to Midcon in Derby but there is also Handycon coming up but not sure of the dates.
5 11/6/2019 12:50:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Looks like it's me. I'll offer up 1 VP to play the Allies.

Message from Central Powers:
1 = Barrington bids first
2 = Matthew bids first
3 11/6/2019 12:49:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Hi Barrington!

I am from Virginia originally but actually live in Germany since this summer, so we should be pretty much on the same schedule. I tend to play pretty quickly but don't feel any pressure.

What con are you going to, out of curiosity? I've been looking for some cool gaming events in Europe.

I agree on supply warnings for movements. I tend to also give warnings when a trivial combat is included (i.e. the die roll doesn't matter). I also like to give warnings for capturing capitals and missed MOs when I notice them, but I don't consider them mandatory.

I assume we're playing with the tournament-standard historical scenario. I use Vassal but don't think it's necessary to exchange files unless we come across a discrepancy.

I'll roll a die to see who bids first!
2 11/6/2019 5:50:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Matthew, I am guessing that you are in Virginia and I am in UK. We have a 5 hour time difference between us.
I am away tomorrow on a games con and not back until Monday. I can email via the site but will not have the game so will not get going until I am back.

My suggestion is that OOS warnings apply to movement but not to combat as results are often no known in advance.

I have used both Cyberboard and Vassal but have a preference for log files and Cyber, I find I do miss things when it is just a message but up to you.

I am retired but busy so should be able to do something daily except over the Xmas period.

will wait to hear from you.
1 11/5/2019 11:45:00 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 Houston (US EST, GMT -6) and will generally respond to all match questions within 24 hours. I strongly recommend you e-mail me directly at "mdauer92@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 (gregorit@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 Tom 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!

Michael Dauer
