GOTM 71 Pre-Game Discussion
Well, I'm out of town for 2 days, so I better put a pre-game discussion thread up for GOTM71 ... a little bit early! We've never played the Mongols straight from the box for PTW because the movement abilities of the Keshik couldn't be recreated in Vanilla Civ (back when Vanilla and PTW were run as one competition.) There was a very enjoyable Mongols game back in GOTM25, but which used special unique units that required additional installs. Here is your chance to play Mongols in the PTW GOTM as provided straight from the game. That's fairly special, but this is our quarterly big game, so the map is a Large, Deity Pangaea with 13 AI civs - extra special . And you'll have an additional week to enjoy this bloodba ... er, GOTM. Have fun!
Land Form: Pangaea, 60% ocean, Large map.
Geology: 3 billion years old, Wet, Temperate
Expansionistic Bonus: Some of the closer Goody Huts will be eliminated to reduce the random effect of the Expansionistic trait, BUT I will leave in more huts than I normally do so feel free to explore widely. Conquest and Open levels will get a bonus Scout and 50 Gold.
- Start with Deity Level AI Bonus Units!!!
- Start with an Extra 150 Gold (in part to support the extra units)
- Start with knowledge of The Wheel
- Start without Pottery
- Do not get Expansionistic Bonus
- Your UU will not start your Golden Age
A reminder: do not post any game information to this thread after you have downloaded the save file. Absolutely no spoiler information for this or any GOTM is to be posted in this thread!
