    Civilization VI - Game of the Month 77

    Welcome to the 77th 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!

    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.

    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.

    Its gotta be worth it to move to the East and get the Natural Wonder tiles in the inner rin of the city, even if it moves us from the coast/river tiles.

    From looking at the start, I agree. SIP is not something I'm considering. I'm either looking at 1W to start on the coast or 3E to be right next to the wonder. Each have their advantages and disadvantages. Either way, the other would be a likely second city spot.

    Warrior 1SW to reveal more of the coast is a clear 1st move. What he finds would decide a 1W or 2 (or 3)E start for the settler. Even if the warrior reveals a resource or a reef, that natural wonder is very tempting to go to first and leverage all that faith and science right from turn 2. Then 2nd city on the piggy makes sense.

    Should be a fun one!

    Wheat tile next to the wonder looks too good! You can work the second tile 1NE of that and start with 4 faith AND 4 science per turn!
