    Civilization VI - Game of the Month 118
    Welcome to the 118th 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!
    We would like to ask you to abide by our most sacred rule: Don'’t replay any turns! If you make a mistake, accept it and try to recover. To ensure fair play and prevent results exclusions, please set your Autosaves to 1 turn. In the event of a computer crash while playing, just reload to the previous save and play it as closely to how you played it the first time. Please let Leif, or Myself know (via Conversation (Private Message)) if you experienced a crash and how many turns you replayed. Gifting of cities is an exploit in a religious VC the AI cant see that it will lose if it accepts the cities. .
    Civ VI - 6otM 118 Details:
    Player (You): Cleopatra of Egypt
    Victory Condition: Culture or science all other VCs are enabled

    Information about threads associated with each individual 6otM -- Must Read if you are new to our Game of the Month![/COLOR]
    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.
    Spoiler :

    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.

    In development.

    This game runs for a month and ends 2, OCTOBER 21.

    Tricky. If you don't settle on turn 1 the city state may box you out, and you'll have to peregrinate a bit....

    thought the same, but does the "four tiles" rule apply to cities on different continents?

    anyway, I'm thinking about settling 1SW to have more land instead of sea tiles

    some of them might come from a nice Holy Site next to the natural wonder with work ethic and the desert pantheon, in combination with scripture ... just thinking

    Depends on what direction you plan to go, lady of the reeds and marshes helps with the desert flood plains, or as others have said desert folklore and work ethic

    This is probably a stupid question, but i am finally playing on computer instead of console, and i cant figure out how to play the save file... are there instructions somewhere for me to reference? I download and save the game attached, but I have no idea how to bring it into my Civ 6 game to play it

    You just need to copy the file into the saves folder before opening the load game menu. In my case that folder is:
    C:\Users\MyUser\Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization VI\Saves\Single\

    2. pantheon on production from flood plains
    3. Etemenanki
    4. Hopefully, some city-state will have useful building
