    Sorry for not having prepared this game yet. I just came back from a voyage. I will try to manage in the next few days.

    Any wishes, ideas, designs?

    I like it, if the game start has the necessary potential for many different VCs. And not too many (or even no) luck factors like suicide galleys, goody huts next to the capital etc.

    I'd like it if nothing is done to make the game play harder than the usual monarch game - I think my son will be willing to give this one a try, and I'd him to have fun. Also, not raging barbs. :)

    Hello, I'm planning on participating in this game (and future games).
    Monarch is a low-enough difficulty level where a bad or low food starting location is still fun to play. Aggressive, war-mongering AI also spice up a game :)

    Welcome to the 144th Conquests Game of the Month, which features Russia on Monarch! This time I had to use a radar tower to illuminate the area around the starting location. Please tell me who knows why an Outpost wouldn't do. Russia is Expansionist and Scientific, traits you could have use of at this rather rough start. Its original technologies are Pottery and Bronze Working, and its Unique Unit is the Cossack, an expensive Cavalry unit which has the Blitz ability and can attack more than once per turn.

    Starting Location

    No, everyone has to play this on his own, and in the end submit the final save (win or lose) here:

    See sidebar on the left under "Civ3 GOTM". There are further links to the rules of this competition, to a FAQ, to the submission page and to tables of results of all past competitions, dating back to 2001.
