    Civilization 5 - Game of the Month Training Series Game 211
    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\//////////////////////////////////////////
    Welcome to the 211th game in the GOTM V Training Series! This Series will allow new and old GOTM fans to try out these features from Civ5's expansions and DLCs in a friendly environment. Participants are encouraged to post questions, stories, advice, tricks and failures in the dedicated game threads (described below). Each game will specify the Civ you will play and the Victory Condition to strive for. You can read more about the GOTM and Training Series concept in this thread.

    Must Read!

    Civ V BNW - TSG211 Details:
    Maya's Unique Abilities:


    Spoiler :
    UA: The Long Count - After researching Theology, receive a bonus Great Person at the end of every Maya Long Count calendar cycle (every 394 years). Each bonus person can only be chosen once.

    UU: Atlatlist - This is a ranged unit available earlier than the Archer which it replaces. It is stronger and does not require Archery to build.

    UI: Pyramids - The Pyramid replaces the Shrine and provides +2 Science in addition to the faith that a shrine normally provides.


    Here is where you will start:

    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.
    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 31 March 2022.

    You're welcome. I hope y'all enjoy it. If I recall correctly, there are 7 civs and 16 city-states, not 8, (I reduced the AIs by one to give more elbow room) and raging barbs is enabled. No other weird settings.

    What’s the difference between Great Plains and Great Plains Plus?

    Edit: Just opened and it is Great Plains Plus

    Plus has I think 2 more luxuries. Other than that they seem to be the same, which is why I didn't mention it in my last post. It's mostly a distinction without a difference. :)

    GP+ has Salt and Copper, and always the same 3 natural wonders: Old Faithful, Barringer Crater and Grand Mesa. Normal GP has fewer luxuries, but the NWs are random and their number depends on map size.

    Assuming this still ended 3/31? I was giving it a shot and unsure if can get victory, but was close to end....but had to retire last night before finishing.

    Have grave doubts as AI civ has 300 lead on me for on C/S....that's way more cash than I own to buy them out.

    This is a quote from a spoiler thread - so don't go to it unless you've finished the game!

    Guys, as this is a Training Serie, where can I find the non-training GoTM? :)

    It was called the training series because a proper GotM competition could not be run due to lack of a mod to secure the save.

    Civ4 GotM is a non-training GotM because we have BUFFY. This does not exist for Civ5 or Civ6.
