4 9/15/2020 2:42:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Hi Larry, I am content to play either side, too. Therefore, we can leave things as they are: you CP and me AP.

I have the POG 10.0 module as well. Do you prefer to share vlog files or each keep his own board? I can do either with a preference for keeping my own board with occasional RB checks and the like. But am happy to share.

The supply warning has always struck me as removing one from the experience and limiting strategic planning (although, I have benefited from the rule a number of times). Therefore, I am satisfied to not use it.

It looks like we are ready to draw cards and begin.

Good luck to you.

Richard


3 9/15/2020 12:43:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message HI Richard...I don't care which side I am...go ahead and choose...

I just loaded the new 10.0 POG Module, plus the most current VASSAL 3.4.1...is that what you are using?

I prefer not to use supply warnings...never understood why that's suggested, except for brand new players...and they learn quickly enough after one game...

...that being said, we can dice for warnings or no warnings if you prefer them...let me know....

Good luck and good playing...Larry
