    Anybody started yet ? We've had some discussion of this GOTM in the 108 spoiler/etc. I am still deciding whether to play, and if so, whether to go for EC or EL. Most likely, I will play for EC with Grigor and anyone else who wants to do that, probably starting very soon, even today. There has also been some talk about a serious EL gotm soon [109? 110? 111?]. I guess if several people speak up soon, that is still possible for 109.

    I will either skip this one altogehter or play OCC due to lack of real time. It will be late Aprial before I have any hopes of finishing GOTM 108.

    I will play this one but still don't know of it conquest or landing. I guess we can better wait till one of the next GOTM's. Next month (early may) I'm on holiday and have not much time to play anyway.

    I haven't got time for another landing on this one so I'll go for conquest.

    Thanks for replies. I am playing for EC. My early plan [before starting] was:

    ICS til at least 1500BC [fairly-fat EC], without the size 1 trick.
    Build a one-tile road ASAP, mainly for the arrow.
    Plan on early MPE, but wait-and-see on HG,LH,Pyr,etc and on whether to trade.
    My usual anti-respawn strategy [find/control the kill zone].

    Of course, I may change plans as I go. I found the very early game interesting and made frequent saves, in case anyone wants to compare in detail later. I have saves at 3400, 3000, 2400, 2000, 1500....

    I didn't see restarts were on, this should be frustrating.

    My only real plan this time is to attack with 3 ships for each civ (4 crusaders or ellies, 1 settler and 1 defending unit) This should avoid repeating my previous way of failing.
