    Civilization VI - Game of the Month 26
    Welcome to the 26th 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.

    Information about threads associated with each individual 6otM -- Must Read if you are new to our Game of the Month!
    Spoiler :
    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.
    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 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.
    Results and Congratulations thread: We will create a separate thread with the results at the end of the one month submission period (sorted by date and score). We will issue medals to the top 3 winners (based on earliest date finished). There are no long-term records kept for these results, they are just given out to top finishers to reward their efforts.

    File Upload System
    In development.

    This game runs for a month and ends December 1, 2017.

    looks like a good game with which to start playing civ again. other than a few opening moves, it has been nearly four months since i've played a game.

    warrior will not be able to reveal any more of the tiles around the silk, so based on what is revealed i don't see a huge advantage to settling the silk (other than gaining a culture in city square and something early to trade with) or the nearest cows (gaining a food for a loss of housing). either of those options will result in a loss of production, so i will settle in place. two good inner ring tiles to work there.

    I so want to move on top of the silk, but have to agree it doesn't look worth it. Most likely settle in place. Get a scout out first (as almost always for me) to start the exploration, then builder/settler, slingers.

    The map maker made no changes to the default options when creating the map.

    Just to make sure - the save is made in Civ6 with the latest released patch? I'm on Archlinux and the save doesn't load for me and the Civ hangs for unexpectedly long time before I run out off patince and kill it. Older saves load fine.
