6otM144 Announcement


GOTM Staff
Nov 26, 2016
Welcome to game 144 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.

Is there ever going to be a game at Emperor level? This level is always skipped. I cannot remember a Game of the Month at this level.

And while I'm at it...

I would enjoy an occasional GOTM where we aren't given much (if any) information about the world in which we're playing.

You asked for it you got it! :mischief:

Super Hide Bonus: For those who desire some added fun in the lack of info category: :dunno:
1) Click on the menu bar in upper right of game, then interface, then "show yields in HUD ribbon" and select "Alway Hide (off)" which will turn off the HUD ribbon info about the AI you can normally see.
2) Never open world rankings until you've won the game. This will hide total number of AI until you've actually met them all and get the "historic moment." (if you even get the historical moment)
3) Don't look at the game save for the world size.

Outstanding. Really looking forward.

No doubt RV will be quicker, esp if you can get the Evangelist Golden Age, but that doesn't feel right to me for Genghis, so I'm going to try Domination. Definitely gonna play completely blind, now that you've shown how to do it!

Only down side- end of my streak for first time Civ victories in GOTM, since I did play Genghis for a full game once before....
