    I think I will have a go at this! It looks fun! :)

    But I was looking through the past games and there aren't any results for the last 2 Games of the Month? I was wondering how long it takes for the results to be poster after the closing date?

    Normally, the preliminary results are done a couple days after the submission deadlne. Then certain games are reviewed in more detail. This is the area that takes the most time since it depends on multiple people responding and that information being compiled.

    So, except for times where I get busy in real life, the results are done once the games are done being reviewed.

    Thanks, but it is certainly a team effort. I'm not doing all the detailed checks by myself. :)

    I'm a little curious. What sort of things are looked for in a detailed check? (omit anything thats a state secret:) )

    It varies by game. It can be things like the expansion path, the interaction with Barbs, the contact with the AI, gold/science progress, powergraph analysis, stuff like that.

    This month, I'm so sad : I cannot play, because I never win by SS : I don't know how to built it (how many of each component ...?), and I have to wait for the next GOTM.....

    see you

    Flat world ? I have never played this before, does this mean that the Grenwich meridian behaves like the polar regions.

    Yes, in that you can't sail directly from one "side" of the map to the other by crossing the meridian. However, I believe one difference is that the sides and the poles are not necessarily considered land, so triremes can sink if you run them along the map border.

    Tim is correct. The map borders are not considered land tiles.

    Yep - It's about the only way I can finish a SS-manditory game in less than a month.

    So I won't be able to use my favourite stategy of sending a unit from my capital backwards across the international date line and gaining extra turns.
