Civilization VI - Game of the Month 101 Welcome to the 101st 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 cant see that it will lose if it accepts the cities. Must Read! Civ VI - 6otM101 Details: Spoiler The Story : Since time immemorial, before their first soothsayers, before even their first settlements, the Mayan people have known the world’s oceans will rise and the gods will punish the people in an Apocalypse of great rocks dropped from the heavens that can level even the greatest of mountains until the Earth is destroyed. The world is old and hot; and the seas have already begun to rise. Lady Six Sky is determined to avert the final destruction by stopping those who would destroy the Earth and building the greatest civilization ever. Of course, her people like to stay close to home; can she keep such a sprawling empire in one piece? If the end of the world cannot be averted, the ancestors of the soothsayers have said they can take great ships to other Earths to start over. Lady Six Sky is determined that only the Mayan people will take this journey if she cannot stop others from destroying the Earth. She will still build the greatest civilization ever and learn from the mistakes.

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 next thread. Opening Actions thread: This thread is used to discuss the game's opening decisions and strategies through the first 50 or so turns (normally this 100, but due to Online speed only 50). 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.

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.
