    Map Analysis

    Resource seed is any of 5 family (21, 37, 53). Starting location is 1-special (there is wheat at the starting spot), all other visible land tiles are 2-specials with the exception of unshielded grassland NW which is 4-specials.

    how I can get starting techs? seems like its random, should I start game over again until it gives me alphabet and ceremonial burial?

    nvm, I just noticed there is file to download. Another question, where I can read rules for game of month?

    Hi tramwajg, welcome! We are always happy to see new faces around here!You have figured it out already, we all start from the similar position designed in the .sav-file that is posted in the first post of the thread and then see where it it is going from there. If you read through the game-threads and spoiler-threads of the previous gotms you will get an idea what this is about.
    The rules are stated here: https://forums.civfanatics.com/threads/gotm-score-and-rules.624506/

    I'm going to try this one as a casual game; so far I've gotten fairly lucky with goodie huts (picked up a Legion, a NONE settler, Currency, and Bronze Working), though the placement of my cities has been rather messy thus far.

    Would it be possible to get an extension on the deadline. I have my spaceship built and ready to launch, but I need a bit of time to go through the turns between launch and landing.
