Civilization 5 - Game of the Month Training Series Game 82 \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\////////////////////////////////////////// Welcome to the Eighty-second game in the GOTM V Training Series! There are plenty of features in Civilization 5 Brave New World to explore and the Training Series games will allow new and old GOTM fans to try out these 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: don’t 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. Please note: 1) 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. 2) As of TSG82 we are banning the intentional use of the Beaker Overflow exploit. Submissions using this will be excluded from results. In this game, the designated VC is Science. All VCs are enabled but results will be published by fastest Science victory turn. In this game you will play as America and lead the American Empire to victory. It's a standard-sized map played at Prince difficulty and at standard pace. Science is the designated VC for this game, all victory conditions are enabled. You will have until April 15th to complete the game and submit.

Your cities receive a 50% discount when purchasing tiles. You can train Minutemen, a powerful melee unit that replaces the Musket. Only America may build it. This Unit may move through rough ground as though it were flat, receives a bonus when fighting in rough terrain, and earns points toward a Golden Age when it defeats an enemy. You can also build the B17, a Unique air unit that replaces the bomber. This Unit has a chance of evading interception, and does additional damage to Cities compared to the Bomber, which it replaces. This is where you will start: 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 (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 information from a game you have started. Instead use the next thread. Opening Actions 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. 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 (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 one month submission 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 one month, the results will be compiled, and will not necessarily be updated with reports coming in after the finish date. File Upload System We now 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 Tuesday, 15 April 2014. The Save can be found here.
