    Civilization VI - Game of the Month 76
    Welcome to the 76th 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.

    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.

    Looks to me like you wanted to post it early because maybe you aren't around tomorrow @Knowtalent - however it seems like you forgot to add the save file :p

    Is there any way to play the game of the months on PS4? Is there cloud saving? I do own PC, but would like to play on my PS4

    Sorry, I do not know how the PS4 works? There is no cloud saving, the saves are posted in the announcement threads as attachments. Please see last month's announcement. Can you download the attachment and save it in the save folder of your install?

    I don't know if PS4 has the DLC's - if so the saves should work.

    My understanding is the save file depends on the DLC version (Rise & Fall etc.) to work

    Try some of the previous games here: https://forums.civfanatics.com/threads/6otm-master-list.639302/

    Right now, the only way I found that works is to load the GOTM save on your PC then re-save it to the cloud. As long as your console is linked to your 2K account, it should work.

    I have gotten this to work on the Switch before. Unfortunately my SSD recently failed on my PC so I have not verified it truly works on the XBOX (I do not own a PS4). I can directly download the saves to my XBOX but there is no folder under My Documents on the XBOX to move the save to. Maybe this will come in a future update.
