Our game has been created but not yet played, the first game session is scheduled for Wed., 18 Jan. 2400 UTC (7pm EST). Usually 10 turns will be played in a session. The official Game Session Instruction Thread (which is *not* a discussion thread) is here: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?p=3579602#post3579602 This thread is to discuss what to do in the 10 turns. Every government official (Secretaries and Ministers) is probably going to open threads discussing issues related to their office. This thread here is to cover and coordinate those discussions, as issues of different departments need to be considered in relation to each other, to fit in the "big picture". In other words, this thread is for short to mid-term general strategies and actions specificly for the 10 turns of Game Session 1. Any issue that causes major disputes here will be spun off to an dedicated thread. Any issue that already has a dedicated thread for discussion should be summarized here when that discussion reaches a conclusion.
