With Duke's permission, may I have the honor of presenting Haft aab (7 rivers) on the 7th anniversary of the Game of the Month. Game of the Month #84 (January 2008) The game settings Civilization: Persians Map: (Haft aab) 105x95 round; 7 civs Difficulty: Emperor Barbarians: Roving Bands (-25) Restarts: On Starting Techs: None This is a custom map that I created years ago. You are encouraged to look at the map before you start. The map is not revealed during the game though. This is a large very young world (meaning that terrain types come in big clusters). Haft aab means 7 rivers. These are not your ordinary rivers. They are long, very long. Every civilization starts near one. The rapid movement this offers right at the begining makes for some interesting plays. To make things a little more challenging, all your rivals have Horsebackriding as a starting tech, an extra None settler, and a city wall in their capital. Starting location: http://civ2gotm.civfanatics.net/gotm_games/GOTM84.jpg Games will be due on February 2nd, 2008. Please be sure to follow the submission guidelines when submitting your game.
