Civilization VI - Game of the Month 30
Welcome to the 30th 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. .

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.

File Upload System
In development.

This game runs for a month and ends Feb 01, 2017.

Nicely - was really really waiting for the new 6otM!

Have finished it right away, and wait for the Opening and After Actions Thread - thanks a lot guys for making these, they make playing single players much more fun!

After quitting the last two due to pushing the "one more turn", this one was really fun...

Moderator Action: <SNIP>

Again, thanks a lot for making these, tho I am not looking for beeing on the victory ladder ;P

Moderator Action: Removed potentially spoilerish info. Once you open the save, please do not post in the Announcement thread. Thanks, leif

When I starting the game it shows tectonic islands not pangea...mistake in description ?
Yeah, Pangaea isn't correct.
Thanks for posting. This will be my first game of the month and I look forward to cracking into it later today.

Are we allowed to use non-stock units like the Hirdman and Ulfhedinn? Thanks
I tried loading the file and it didn't work. It showed up fine in the save bin of the game, brought me to the loading screen with Harald, but never actually loaded. Games normally load in 30 seconds and I left it over 5 minutes. Anyone else have this issue? (Using a Mac)
The starting location is so nice one is tempted to settle in place. But perhaps one should rather find a coastal spot and build longships right away. Any opinions?

I 60% lean to SIP also. Great start so can get out Longships with 2d/3d cities quickly. Generally looks like a worse starting location to move, but could pay off with early settler/worker capture.
