    Civilization VI - Game of the Month 82
    Welcome to the 82nd 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!

    This is where you will start: gotm82.jpg

    Fredrick's Unique Attributes:
    Spoiler :

    Frederick Barbarossa's Special Ability: Holy Roman Emperor - Additional Military Policy slot. +7 Combat Strength when attacking City-States.

    Unique Ability
    : Free Imperial Cities: Each city can build one more district than usual (exceeding the normal limit based on population).

    Unique Unit: U-Boat: German Unique Modern Era Naval Unit that replaces the Submarine. Cheaper to produce, +1 sight and +10 Combat Strength when fighting on Ocean tiles. Able to reveal other stealthed units.

    Unique Infrastructure: Hansa: A District unique to Germany for Industrial Activity. Replaces the Industrial Zone District.


    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 April 1 2020.

    There's a mistake here. I think. The announcement gives the player as Gorgo, when it should be Frederick Barbarossa.

    I think the save title says King, but the thread says Prince. Not sure which is right, but probably the King level.

    This looks interesting. 18 city states. Normally I'd want to be Suz of city states, but with the Germany bonus think I'll try to take most of them over (not science ones due to victory condition; others based upon their bonus).

    I think it's at 3 or 4, I created the save early in Feb and forgot that when I put it up. I kept the save as it had the potential for the active volcano achievement,

    Thinking I might try this one since I have more time on my hands these days... Are UI mods allowed? I'm getting back into the swing of things and not sure what people use for UI improvements these days - is it still CQUI?
