    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.
    Spoiler :

    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. Please don’t post any game-related info once you open and play the save. 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.
    Spoiler :

    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 earliest date and highest score ). We will issue a medal to the top winners (based on earliest date finished for each VC). There are no long-term records kept for these results, they are just given out to top finishers to reward their efforts.[/COLOR]

    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 October 15th, 2018.

    Looks great, thanks! I never know if I should run Liberty or not for extra GMoV, but I think I will. Seems like the play that the developers want you do.

    Warrior to his hill to the left, but unless that reveals more Fish, settler is moving 1 hex to the right and I will try for Dessert Folklore, Petra, and Solar Plant.

    Another civ I've never played, cool! If this were a lower level I might try Piety or Liberty and then Patronage. But since its Immortal I better stick with Tradition.

    I think I'll settle in place. I'll move the warrior NE to see what's there but unless there's something amazing I'll stay where I am. It would be awesome to try for DF and Petra but its risky. If that Gems weren't out there on that point of land I'd consider settling there too.

    I've played a lot of Venice lately (not sure why, except I haven't played Enrico much) and won what I think was my first Immortal victory on a random map.

    On a lower difficulty I might move one tile to the east and beeline Petra. But I think I'll move my warrior to the west, then either settle in place or go west. Settling on the gems might be good; it depends whether there are any fish (etc) in the coastal tiles still in the fog. Tradition, Commerce, Rationalism, Freedom. That's the plan anyway, it might change ;)

    Is this a large map or medium? Nevermind, I just checked: large map. (and quick pace, that's a little weird)
