    Don't fear dom deity in Civ 6, it's been the easiest path of victory for me. Your biggest worry early on is the barbarians which says a lot about how bad the AI civs are.

    After the 3 slingers to archer upgrades and if you have horses then build a lot of war chariots with the Maneuver 50% reduction policy, find iron and save up your gold. Time stirrups with Professional Army and upgrade your chariots to knights at half cost. They will wreck most everything. Make sure to make a siege tower or two and don't lose them. At some point in the game you can't make them anymore.

    I'm so afraid to start this game.

    So it can only be played once right ?

    Once for record, the first play through.

    You are welcome to try it as many times as you wish and write summaries, but only the first attempt counts.

    Is it possible for a Continents start to be an isolated start? That would be particularly cruel!

    So is Goddess of the Harvest an exploit? After capturing some cities and getting Theology, seems a too easy way to rush mid-game units to the point you've reached end game.

    I think it should be deemed an exploit until proven otherwise. I havent tried it yet, but i can see with theocracy it could be exploitive.

    Where do you guys think it's the best place to settle? I wanted to settle right on the spot but that cotton seems to be so far. Maybe I settle and then buy those tiles to get the cotton when I need the luxury?

    It may well be. As we are still discovering things about Civ6, perhaps some people should play using the strategy and let us see the results so we can decide? If you do, please offer an evaluation of its effect in your write up.

    Really excited to get started with this. I tried playing my first Deity game this weekend to prepare and practice some strategies. It took me a while to get my military rolling and lost to a Science win before I could get every capital. But have some good lessons learned and will be ready to go here.

    I am a bit unclear on this game. Are we going to get a 4.5 load or is the deadline for this game just getting pushed until mid-Feb?

    It is because you do not have the Aztec dlc. Another save will be posted soon, in another thread, that will allow you to play.
