Civilization VI - Game of the Month 97 Welcome to the 97th 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.

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.
