It is (ok, was) September 15th - the next GOTM's are now out.

In the Civ3 competition, GOTM71 is our quarterly Large map Game. You'll play as the Mongols against 13 Deity level AI on a Pangaea map - Fun! If this sounds a little daunting, not to worry - a handicapped save is available where you start with the same amount of free units as the AI. You will need to play in Civ3 Play the World with the last patch (1.27), but no other mods are required.

Civilization: Mongols
Rivals: 13 pre-selected.
Barbarians: Raging
Difficulty: Deity
Land Form: Pangaea, 60% ocean, Large map.
Geology:3 billion years old, Wet and Temperate.
