    Hello! I'm new to CivFanatics and the GOTM.

    I tried the game and ended up with a 1764 conquest. Not too bad but could have done better. Damn enemies kept respawning!

    I don't think my game is eligible for submission since I forgot to make the 1 and 1000 AD saves.

    I abode by the house rules and really missed caravan rehoming.

    Are there any saves that are "close enough"? House rules are usually pretty lenient on those things.

    Either way, quick PSA for the regulars: Going to be AWOL for a while now, job search is more important. Kinda sucks, I had a great start for GOTM188, but going for spaceship=dumb decision. Only going to be able to do conquest on short maps from now on, most likely.

    I don't have any "close enough" saves. It's my first GOTM and I hadn't read the submission rules properly.
    I'm now playing GOTM 189 and made all the proper saves. I'm also keeping a journal to compare strategies with other submissions.

    Welcome Fake Boris. Glad to see another Civ2 GOTM player.

    As Jokemaster pointed out, the rules are somewhat flexible. Glad to see you are working on GOTM 189 as well. Make sure you check out the spoiler threads after you have played to the point of knowing where all the other AI rivals are. Feel free to ask any questions.

    Hope you can keep at least a low profile and good luck on the job search.

    As you, and others have noticed, real life has left me little time to play Civ2 in 2017. After a record 4 trips in a six week span of time, and several time consuming engagements behind me, I am looking forward to a summer that would hopefully allow some Civ2 playing time.

    I used to play civ 2 as a kid and I'd like to get into it again by playing a game of the month. But I think that if I start this one I might not finiish before june 5. So maybe next time.

    Welcome back sirdanilot. The game is due July 5th not June 5th so you still have plenty of time. The next game will be posted before the end of this week.

    Oh, I missed that.

    I havent played civ 2 in over 10 years so Deity seems a bit daunting. But I'll give it a try maybe.

    Nowadays, with small number of players and our graders being way behind, deadlines are soft. A week or two after is always OK. If you ever need more time to finish, just ask.

    Deadlines are soft.Me,you,other active veteran players know this.But a new player or an old player back to Civ II GOTM having intention to play(again),don't know this.Is good to write in GOTM thread with few days,a week before deadline: 'deadline extended to...',my opinion.
