7 11/7/2019 4:03:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message I just read your bid too quickly - I take the Allies for 0 VP of course

6 11/7/2019 8:00:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Hi Moritz - Because I bid first for the CP, the bidding is for the CP, not AP. Your choices are to accept, thus getting the Allies for 0 VP, or raise the bid to 1 for the CP. If you're willing to bid one for the AP, surely you'd be happy getting them for zero, right? =)
5 11/7/2019 12:25:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message I bid 1 for Allies
4 11/6/2019 8:07:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Hi Moritz - It's good to cross swords with you again! I'm hoping for a fun match, too. I'm still in Philly, GMT-5, and generally can play briskly when I'm not traveling.

I will bid 0 for the CP.

Message from Central Powers:
Hi Tom,
My heart sinks a little that I have to play you...well, I guess I will learn something either way, hope it will be a good game!
I'm in Munich, Germany, will try to check moves twice a day if possible (sometimes I have longer trips where it's pretty busy, will announce them)

initial bid
1-3 Tom
4-6 Moritz
1 11/5/2019 11:46:00 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
