Civilization 5 - Game of the Month Training Series Game 222
\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ //////////////////////////////////////
Welcome to the 222nd game in the GOTM V Training Series! This Series allows new and old Civilization V fans to try out many 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.

Our most sacred rule: Do not replay any turns!
If you make a mistake, accept it, and try to recover through game-play. To ensure fair play and prevent results exclusions, please set your Autosaves to "1 turn". In the event of a computer crash while playing, just reload to the previous autosave, then play on the same way you played it the first time. Please let Leif or me know (either in the forums or through Private Message) if you experienced a crash and how many turns you replayed.

Information about threads associated with each individual TSG - Must Read if you are new to the Game of the Month!

Please note:

Spoiler :

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). Its 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.
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.

File Upload System
Spoiler :

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 through June 30th 2023.

I didn´t go for it in my test run and frankly don´t remember whether an AI built it or not. However, the map has been ever so slightly modified and no other changes have been made deliberately.
I guess the only choice is to move to the marble and settle; gets you the marble and next to the desert. I better check to see if there's a downside to not having a quarry as Egypt though.

I think the same. I don't see any downsides when not having quarry, pantheon for quarry bonus will not be effective in this environment anyway.
Setting on marble + Egipt UA + Aristocracy (+ maybe respective pantheon) will give sweet bonus for WWs.
I am thinking also about Piety, but Tradition seems simpler in place when there will be plenty of food for Capital.
@Nizef upload via link will be possible after TSG221 ends?
Hi. It was my fault. I had not uploaded the game to the server as I am supposed to do. However, now it should appear as an alternative. The submitting time is still unchanged to the end of June.
