Civilization 5 - Game of the Month Training Series Game 39
Welcome to the thirty-ninth game in the GOTM V Training Series! There are plenty of new features in Civilization 5 to explore and the Training Series games will allow new and old GOTM fans to try out these new 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.
In this game, the designated VC is Diplomatic. You may win by any VC you wish, as all VC's are enabled, but the results will be posted with fastest finish by Diplomatic victory and then all other VC listed below by fastest time.
In this game you will play as Ramesses II and lead The Egyptian civilization to victory. It's a standard-sized mystery map played at Emperor difficulty and at standard pace. Diplomatic victory is the designated VC for this game, all victory conditions are enabled. You will have until August 1st to complete the game and submit.
Very happy to have out Mac players back with us, hope you enjoy the game.
Please note that you are only allowed to build Oxford University one time.

You can train the War Chariot, which replaces the Chariot Archer. The War Chariot is faster than the standard Chariot Archer and can be built without the horse resource. As a mounted unit, it is vulnerable to Spearman. You must discover the technology of The Wheel and you do not need a resource to build it.
You can build the Burial Tomb, which replaces the Temple. The Burial Tomb increases the city's output of happiness and costs no maintenance for the city. If the city is captured, the capturing civilization will gain twice as much gold as would be the case in a city without a Burial Tomb. You must discover the technology of Philosophy and you need a Monument in the city to build it.

Information about threads associated with TSG
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 information from a game you have started. Instead use the next thread.
Game In Progress thread. This thread is used to discuss the game once it's on the way. There are no reading or posting restrictions as such (apart from normal decency), although we encourage players to use the spoiler tags for screenshots. Here you can post questions related to the game and share your achievements/anger/frustration/victories while you play.
After Action Report thread. In this thread you can post the results of your game. Please state (preferably in the post title) your victory date and score, as recorded in the Hall of Fame, and the most important: your path to glory! , We will create a separate thread with the results at the end of the two week period (sorted by date and score). 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 two weeks, the results will be compiled, and will not necessarily be updated with reports coming in after the finish date.
