    Information about threads associated with each individual TSG -- 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.

    TSG 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 (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
    We have a game file upload system you can find here. Please use it to upload your completed first attempt by saving the game on the turn after your victory or defeat. (by using the "lemme play one more turn" feature) Please note: you must submit your game on the turn following Victory. If you continue to play, the game overwrites the data and your submission could be rejected by the submission system.

    This game runs for a month and ends January 1st, 2017.

    Start is nice and craggy! SIP, try and be peaceful. I will build Maori Warrior instead of Scouts.

    I'm going to do Sacred Sites. Never tried it before and Polynesia on King seems like a good time for it. Just hope there's more stone or Gems and Pearls out there.

    I don't think I've ever played Polynesia, except in the scenarios. SIP looks pretty good, or maybe on the cocoa. Will have to play a practice game before starting this one.

    I've been playing a lot of Korea lately; that usually end in a violent culture victory (start a world war about the time I research Refrigeration, beeline Internet, build Sydney Opera House, NVC, and CN Tower)

    Bummer, game ends at T300. That is faster than I can get to CV, especially without advance warning, and I was not ahead on score.

    Please adjust OP to mention the time victory constraint. Also, could we have an AAR thread please?
