    Welcome to the fourth quarter of the new format of the friendly Civilization III Game of the Month competition!

    Changes to Thread Structure

    We have established a new thread structure. The spoiler threads will be published at once, and all game discussion will take place there. This thread is only of discussion about the game as such, not about its content: technical problems, planning and other meta issues. I will publish a note in each thread as the game proceeds allowing ever more spoiler information to be published and discussed.

    I started COTM-149 & accidentally found a technical problem, to my benefit. The info is a spoiler, can discuss via PM. Not sure if I should disqualify myself from the COTM
