6otM158 Announcement


GOTM Staff
Nov 26, 2016
Welcome to game 158 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!
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.

Another new leader, Ludwig II has a unique way to generate tourism and achieve a cultural victory. Check out the Swan King leader bonus.

Swan King – Wonders, even unfinished, receive a +2 Culture bonus from each adjacent District. All Culture adjacency bonuses provide Tourism after researching Castles.

Based upon the picture above, what are your thoughts on where to settle the first city?
will move the warrior to confirm, but either 1W or 1E for me. only planning one city, though. I think 1W is definitely the play for ppl doing multiple cities. Good early production and food.

I know the game is ended for submission, but I'm still going to play it. I'm going to settle in place, as from the picture I see there is a natural wonder at north east which I intend to target for my theatre + a wonder (any) with 3 adjacent districts (Comeercial Hub + Theatre + Hansa). I hope my plan isn't entirely bad. :D

Starting it now.
lol. Seems like I was mistaken. I thought Natural wonders also give adjacency bonuses to Theatre. But they don't.
