    Is the 20th March included as a day for submission? Got my laptop stolen midgame which kinda slowed me down a tad :sad:

    If I rush the end I can probs finish on the 20th

    Ooof, hopefully you mean temporarily occupied and not of the "somebody nicked it on the train" type of stealing, because that would probably invalidate any game you had going anyway. To be on point, however, the countdown here looks pretty accurate: http://gotm.civfanatics.net/submit/civ-gotm-new.php

    Trying to get to the end myself, and I'm slow as hell, so it's not a sure thing. We'll see... For some reason I kinda forgot about this game for 3 weeks or whatever.

    You have until the end of the day at the international date line to finish a gotm.
    This page shows how much time is left http://gotm.civfanatics.net/ [as I'm posting this 2 days, 19 hours]

    And there is slightly more time as the minutes aren't listed but the time listed is rounded down. So many games I've checked and rechecked that countdown as I've rushed to finish. :)
    And what Pangaea said, restarting the game is not allowed. Major sympathy for loss of laptop. :(

    Same game, 2 different laptops. Does that invalidate?

    If you had to start over then yeah, but it's not really for me to say as I'm not part of the staff. If it's the exact same game and you simply continued it on another laptop (the save stored on cloud or dropbox or whatever), I would imagine it's okay, but I have no idea what BUFFY does in the background or what decision the staff will take on the matter.

    Looks like I'll be able to finish my game, which is nice. At least two days left still :)

    Edit: Very off-topic, but who is that guy playing guitar?

    Don't know to what extent this applies in this case, but I found these rules from the Intro GOTM page.

    That should be ok, but I will leave the decision up to AlanH.

    After a long time I'm back to a bit of CIV4 (Getting a real job and moving in with your girlfriend kills your gaming time :D)
    I was confused with the error that I need Buffy .005 and on the download site it was still .003. But downloaded the new version and now I'm going for a real quick game before the deadline ends. I was on monarch/Emperor level before, but let's see if I can still beat this GotM with fun
