    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. 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.

    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 October 1st, 2017.

    A typo has slipped in the thread title. This is TSG162 while the title says TSG163.

    I haven't played a TSG since the 2nd one back in October 2010! :crazyeye:

    Picked up Civ5 again recently and I am surely going to give this one a try. Wish me luck. :lol:

    Strong start.
    Suggested move is to move warrior on sheep or silver and then decide to settle in place or on silver.
    On silver : potential for a stronger Petra city and +2GPT on turn 1
    On place : good Petra city + cargos but considering its Pangea it is not likely you ll have very good secondary locations on the coast.

    A quick question. I play my Civ5 games with the Enhanced user interface v1.28 and InfoAddict v22 DLC installed.

    Are those allowed for the TSG?

    I've read the welcome thread and it could possibly resort under the following:
    Just want to make sure before I invest quite some time in this TSG.

    Hahaha, this map could be rage quit inducing. I might go for Shrine first, if I miss Desert Folklore...

    EUI is fine as it only presents info that is already available. If you go thru the archives you will see that I use it on some of my saves. I don't have it installed on my laptop, which is what I use most of the time now to create the saves these days
