    Civilization VI - Game of the Month 61

    Welcome to the 61st game in the 6OTM Series, and the first game in the Gathering Storm expansion! 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. Gifting of cities is an exploit in a religious VC as the AI cant see that it will lose if it accepts the cities.

    Must Read!

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

    Not really surprised as Sweden was the next in the poll and there havn't been any deity game with GS.
    The NW next door is a surprise thought. And fractal map could be just about anything. Just hope we have a little more breathing room than a recent GotM.
    Deity means it might be harder to get all the different terrains for the museums without doing some conquests.

    Fractal probably means there will be non-terrible locations for Tundra, Desert and possibly even a Snow city. Deity however always means
    there's a good chance you're gonna get rekt. When I read through Kristinas/Swedens abilities I feel like when you survive the Deity AIs early
    you'll automatically easily win a culture victory... that's how strong everything sounds. You won't even have to try hard :D

    Does anyone have any input on the fresh water situation? I think Lake Retba counts as fresh water (even though it's salt water). I am not sure however if the
    wonder tile is eligible for an Aquaduct connection (for e.g. like Kilimanjo not allowing it and not counting as mountain adjacency for Campus/Holy Sites either).

    Seem to recall reading that Lake Retba does not count as fresh water.

    ah... Apparently it changed from providing fresh water in Rise and Fall to no longer doing so in Gathering Storm :thumbsup:

    It is now salt water. You can build "seaside" resorts around it (despite being called a lake)

    With no fresh water from Lake Retba, I'll most likely settle in place. CS's should survive after the latest patch with walls from the start. Get a scout out quick and see from there.

    The settler lens indicates that Lake Retba provides coastal water (+1 housing).
    Technically, not fresh water (+3 housing), but still extra housing.
    So, it is basically the same as settling the coast.

    Deity in CIV6 in the past required B-Lining to archers. I can't imagine this game is any different.
