    Civilization VI - Game of the Month 80
    Welcome to the 80th 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:

    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 March 1 2020.

    Small copy/paste error, under map above spoiler tag it says "Eleanor's..."

    Domination on a continents/islands map... I'd guess the best strategy would be to clear the start continent and then head to sea. Maybe keep one weak ally around for trading and such, even if Prince level AI tend not to be much help at anything?

    I've never been a fan of Hoplites, but probably because I've used them wrong. If you only have one, it may as well be a spearman. It doesn't give +10 combat to any adjacent unit, just adjacent Hoplites, right?

    Different strategy if we are isolated... scouting to determine that is a top early priority, as usual. Good luck and have fun!

    right, a 35 strength city buster before swords is really what it is.
    Build one for era points and eureka, build 2 for an early rush with no iron present... or none.

    Bring the ones you do build along behind your front lines. AC at rank two get double support bonus so +4 from a r2 hoplite to adjacent units.

    I prefer the L4 promotion. The L2 one is a bit of a trap, you really need to up your strength against melee or swords waste you. GorgO is my 2nd most played civ and getting 2 hoplites into support positions is a bit of a waste. If they were affected by a GG then that makes them more useful, but they are not. Played about 5 games with pure hoplite armies... just meh.
    Right I’m gonna play the first 20 turns now, so cannot respond more here.

    Curious how Continents and Islands differs from regular continents? Just adding some extra small islands?

    Ooh, I still needed a Gorgo win after the HOF came into the game. :)
