    Civilization VI - Game of the Month 89

    Welcome to the 89th 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.

    Thx for ur hard work. I rarely comment but have the GOTM thread on “Watch” and pay close attention. I dont yet have the confidence to post my strategy but i play it and usually enjoy reading how other, more advanced players, progressed and choices they made.

    I suspect the top level domination players will beat it before even unlocking the UU.

    Looking forward to trying this out!

    I wonder if there will be a pre-/post-patch divide depending on whether old Simón finds himself hit with the nerf gun in the June update :lol:

    Dammit - I just read the instructions properly and there's a save file to play from *facepalm*

    Well, I played 107 turns on a worse start and it was child's play. Double great general, oligarchy and 1 flanking unit is giving me 41 strength warriors. ez game is ez :)

    Being able to get double great general and oligarchy is just nuts. If you manage to get an early suzerain and levy, pretty sure that'd be a whole AI dead, if not 2. I had a warrior beat a swordsman with flanking bonuses.

    They should remove the movement bonus and possibly being able to upgrade units for free because this just tilts it over the edge. You attack with saved promotions and while you lose a little XP from it, it allows some crazy steamrolls.

    If there are horses nearby, I aim for a sub T100 victory.
    No pressure.

    I've been a bit nervous to play deity single player. But if there is a civ to try it with it's got to be Gran Colombia.
