    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 (dont be afraid to ask questions). Its also used to discuss the game before you start, and post problems with opening the save. Please dont 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 earliest date and highest score ). We will issue a medal to the top winner (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.

    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 April 15th, 2019.

    Nice starting location, nice UA for the first war or two, nice UB for the start...and that might be helpful regarding the huge map...

    I guess, this one suits my skills better than the last one ;-)

    I want to get that Copper in range and also unlock Stoneworks. So I think settle T1 on the dessert hill two hexes to NE. At Prince, I should be able to make HCA work.

    Note: Raging Barbs / No Ruins

    Hmmm, settle in place and get another settler to that copper as quick as I can, or move to that other river-desert hill just to the north? Will probably SIP. I wonder what the turn limit is... Huge maps are huge.

    @beetle, what is HCA?

    Whats the catch? Domination win on Prince should be doable without too many obstacles, even on a huge map. Though Ethiopia wouldn't be my first pick, it's not bad either due to their UA.
    I'm still pondering on the game plan. Take down your enemies as early as possible or run ahead in science and then strike with a massive army from the future? The last option seems more logical to me with Ethiopia.

    Sorry, I must have missed the notification. Honor / Commerce / Autocracy (for the synergy).
