    Civilization VI - Game of the Month 75

    Welcome to the 75th 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. 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.

    Thanks for a prompt game! Does anybody have any idea how to leverage the unique units/traits for a French Elinor in a Domination game? I am guessing that the usual Loyalty issues in domination are somewhat diminished... but I think I really ought to run a trial game of my own before starting. Too bad I am impatient and have little time for anything other than the 6otMs.

    Might try to play this one at least semi peacefully... Aka Indie bands and great works. Just for the fun of it.

    Haha! My favorite pastime, hugging the world into obedience. ;-) Thanks, I'll be playing this one shortly.

    Going for DOM, the French unique abilities actually hinder you because they make it harder to prevent a cultural victory... I'm going for the 'love and war' strategy: conquer your enemies by force (and a little push from loyalty) and conquer your friends with 'love'.

    What luck! I've been playing some Eleanor lately, trying to see if I can use her abilities to push out my borders.

    You want to be centrally located and also survive being centrally located.

    Plan to SIP and start working the faith square in the hopes of a free settler - if not, then god of the forge.

    I like that you can set up a mine, a quarry and a farm nearby for the three early Eurekas :)
