6otM 2022 Krampus Announcement


GOTM Staff
Nov 26, 2016
Welcome to the 2022 Krampus game in the 6OTM Series! These games will allow new and old GOTM fans to try out the new features in Civ6 in a friendly environment. Participants are encouraged to post questions, stories, advice, tricks and failures in the dedicated game threads (described below). Each game will specify the Civ you will play and the Victory Condition to strive for. We will be working to refine the 6otM concept as we move ahead with the series. Gifting of cities is an exploit in a religious VC as the AI can't see that it will lose if it accepts the cities.

Must Read!
We would like to ask you to abide by our most sacred rule: Don’t replay any turns! If you make a mistake, accept it and try to recover. To ensure fair play and prevent results exclusions, please set your Autosaves to 1 turn. In the event of a computer crash while playing, just reload to the previous save and play it as closely to how you played it the first time. Please let Leif know (via Conversation (Private Message)) if you experienced a crash and how many turns you replayed.

Information about threads associated with each individual 6otM -- Must Read if you are new to our Game of the Month!
Please note: If you wish to make a video of your game, please do not post any links to it until after the game submission date has passed. This is because of the potential spoilers that are created by posting before the end date. Thank you for your cooperation.

Spoiler :
Announcement thread (this one): This thread is used to announce the game and clarify the settings and rules (don't be afraid to ask questions). It's also used to discuss the game before you start, and post problems with opening the save. Once you have opened the save, DO NOT POST in the Announcement thread, even non game-related information. Instead use the Opening Actions thread.

Opening Actions thread: This thread is used to discuss the game's opening decisions and strategies through the first 100 or so turns. Here you can post questions related to the game and share your achievements/anger/frustration/victories while you play. We encourage players to use the spoiler tags for screenshot. During the time the game is active, please do not post any information concerning the game outside of the spoiler threads including screen shots, videos, or recorded/live-cast Let's Plays on other websites.

After Actions thread: In this thread you can post the results of your game. Please state your victory/loss date and final score (preferably in the post title) and describe your path to glory in this post! Players are encouraged to provide feedback on the game. Some players like to replay the game, and although we will not record the results from a replay, you can still post your new experiences. The game will not be closed as such, but after one month, the results will be compiled, and will not necessarily be updated with reports coming in after the finish date.

For those who haven't played a 'bonus' Krampus game before, it is a unique map setup that may be tougher (or at least different) than a 'normal' deity game. Whether by flood, fire, or zombies..or other tricks up his sleeve...Krampus is out to get you in this one. Hope it is fun!!!

While Krampus was busy making flood tiles that go inland from the lake, Santa managed to place some luxury and bonus resources.

Two Civ 6 Game bugs that sadly still exist:
1) Secret Society impact: Ley Lines do not appear in designed maps - recommend not using Hermetic Order
2) Dramatic Ages Policy Cards impact: most districts receive a 100% production penalty the first time you add/change policy cards after adding Culture Industry (Era Change; Government Change; etc.); only known fix is to load a save prior to using Culture Industry - recommend not using Culture Industry policy card

Welcome to CivFanatics and Game of the Month! :wavey:

I will let @Eyswein answer your question. I do not think we limit trading.

No limits to trading. Definitely a good way to create income with early buying of diplo favors. I wish they had designed trading better, but it is not an exploit.
