Civilization 5 - Game of the Month Training Series Game 107 \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\////////////////////////////////////////// Welcome to the One Hundred and Seventh game in the GOTM V Training Series! There are plenty of features in Civilization 5 Brave New World to explore and the Training Series games will allow new and old GOTM fans to try out these features in a friendly environment. You are all encouraged to post your questions, stories, advice, tricks and failures in the dedicated game threads described below. You can read more about the GOTM and Training Series concept in this thread. Before going into the details of this game, we would like to ask you to abide to our most sacred rule: dont replay any turns. If you make a mistake, accept it and try to recover. It's better to do the bad moves in the Training Series instead of in the actual GOTM competition, once it starts. 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. Intentional use of the Science Overflow Bug is banned. Its use will result in your game being disqualified for results. In this game, the designated VC is Diplomatic. All VCs are enabled but results will be published by fastest Diplomatic victory turn.

Museum and World Wonder theming bonuses are doubled in your capital. You can train the Musketeer, it replaces the Musketman. The Musketeer is significantly more powerful than the Musketman, making it the most powerful foot soldier unit in the game until the introduction of Industrial Era units. The Musketeer requires that you discover the technology of Gunpowder and does not require a resource to build them. You can also build the Chateau. The Chateau is a tile improvement built by a Worker. A Chateau must be built adjacent to a luxury resource and cannot be adjacent to another Chateau. It provides additional gold and +2 culture as well as the +50% defensive bonus of a Fort. When Flight is researched, its culture increases its yield by +1 and its gold output increases by +2. It must be built in French territory. The Chateau requires that you discover the technology of Chivalry and you do not need a resource to build them.

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.
