    Civilization VI - Game of the Month 72
    Welcome to the 72nd game in the 6OTM Series! These games will allow new and old GOTM fans to try out the new features in Civ6 in a friendly environment. Participants are encouraged to post questions, stories, advice, tricks and failures in the dedicated game threads (described below). Each game will specify the Civ you will play and the Victory Condition to strive for. We will be working to refine the 6otM concept as we move ahead with the series.

    Must Read!
    This is where you will start: 6otm72.jpg

    Suleiman's Unique Attributes:
    Spoiler :
    Suleiman's Special Ability: Grand Vizier: Exclusive unique Governor with military and diplomatic abilities. Gain the Janissary unique unit when the Gunpowder technology is researched.

    Unique Ability: Great Turkish Bombard: +50% Production towards siege units. All siege units gain +5 Combat Strength against district defenses. Conquered cities do not lose Population. Cities not founded by the Ottomans gain +1 Amenity and +4 Loyalty per turn.

    Unique Unit: Janissary: Ottoman unique Renaissance Era unit that replaces the Musketman. Starts with a free promotion. Stronger and cheaper than the Musketman. To train a Janissary a city must have a population of at least 2. If a city is founded by the Ottomans and trains a Janissary it loses a population. Requires the knowledge of Gunpowder, 20 Niter and 1 population to build them.

    Unique Infrastructure: Grand Bazaar: A building unique to the Ottomans. Accumulate 1 extra Strategic resource for every different type of Strategic resource this city has improved. Receive 1 Amenity for every Luxury resource this city has improved. Requires the Technology of Banking and a Commercial Hub with a Market to build them.

    Special Unit: Barbary Corsair: Ottoman unique Medieval era naval unit that replaces the Privateer. It costs no movement to coastal raid. Can only be seen by other Naval Raiders unless adjacent to it. Reveals Naval Raiders within sight range. Requires the Civic of Medieval Faires and no resource to build them.


    Information about threads associated with each individual 6otM -- Must Read if you are new to our Game of the Month!
    Spoiler :
    Please note: If you wish to make a video of your game, please do not post any links to it until after the game submission date has passed. This is because of the potential spoilers that are created by posting before the end date. Thank you for your cooperation.
    Announcement thread (this one): This thread is used to announce the game and clarify the settings and rules (don’t be afraid to ask questions). It’s also used to discuss the game before you start, and post problems with opening the save. Once you have opened the save, DO NOT POST in the Announcement thread, even non game-related information. Instead use the next thread.
    Opening Actions thread: This thread is used to discuss the game's opening decisions and strategies through the first 100 or so turns. Here you can post questions related to the game and share your achievements/anger/frustration/victories while you play. We encourage players to use the spoiler tags for screenshot. During the time the game is active, please do not post any information concerning the game outside of the spoiler threads including screen shots, videos, or recorded/live-cast Let's Plays on other websites.
    After Actions thread: In this thread you can post the results of your game. Please state your victory/loss date and final score (preferably in the post title) and describe your path to glory in this post! Players are encouraged to provide feedback on the game. Some players like to replay the game, and although we will not record the results from a replay, you can still post your new experiences. The game will not be closed as such, but after one month, the results will be compiled, and will not necessarily be updated with reports coming in after the finish date.
    Results and Congratulations thread: We will create a separate thread with the results at the end of the one month submission period (sorted by date and score). We will issue medals to the top 3 winners (based on earliest date finished). There are no long-term records kept for these results, they are just given out to top finishers to reward their efforts.

    Also the "View attachment 533903" link is a photo from a Sweden start :D.

    @Knowtalent just a small question. In this game are all DLC's active ?
    Thanks for the game, looks a very good start, I think I will try this one (First time in GOTM).

    Yes all DLC is active, we expect immediate upgrade to the newest major game expansion, all the DLC is now a year or more older and contain some fun and challenging civs, this is long enough to hold off on them

    If there were a way to just adjust settings on a map so that we would have the same start but with different civs that could be fun. Sadly I cant get World Builder to cooperate

    I finished. Fun game.

    Moderator Action: I know the spoiler threads were not up, but for clarity, we would appreciate once you open a save that you no longer post in the announcement thread to ensure no spoilers sneak in. Thanks. leif

    Rules question. Do I need to avoid winning by any other condition than science? For example an accidental cultural or religious victory on the way. I'm planning on using some religion for extra resources and the AI isn't very good at pushing back on king level.

    Greetings and welcome to Civ6 GotM and CivFanatics.

    We specify a Victory Condition in order to make games more comparable and allow greater learning for our players. There is no requirement to win by the specified VC, you may play to any VC you wish. There will just be fewer players to compare with as most will try for the designated VC.

    The competition is a "Gentlemen's Competition" at this point as we do not have the capability to create a mod that can check for rules violations without the release of the game .dll contents.

    Please enjoy the games and we hope you learn from our community of players as well as teach a few things to others. :thumbsup:
