    Wow! We have gone from perhaps the most complicated game ever to a the most simple!

    Great!

    BTW I have decided not to submit my last game as my rules file at the time was screwed up and it was a bit easy. It wouldn't be fair for me to replay it so i will just live with it :(

    I am going to try an OCC for this one, even though the initial site is not very desirable. I have been waiting to do that since my last try at GOTM17 but delayed it because the last two GOTMs had special circumstances.

    Good decision to try a normal game this month. I would like to see more specials every once in a while though. My own suggestion is playing on a real Archipelago.

    I'm very interested to see the huge scores that I expect from this game. King level, and bonus techs that mean you can get Monarchy at the second science option! :cool: You lucky so-and-sos - makes me wish (once again) for a PC.
    I doubt that I'd "do a Kev" and play this start OCC but I'd definitely put the capital straight down as it looks a decent position for trade and production. :goodjob:

    In future, can you have a game with restarts on? I know they're not popular but you have to give people a challenge now and again and make each game different.
