SGOTM3 Rome - Game Thread. Hi everyone, and welcome to your game thread. Here is the start position. Here are a couple of links you might find useful. The Original GOTM16 Announcement. The Draft Constitution This Months' sponsored variant is Xenophobic NOW The rules are as follows. 1. Non-Oscillating War variant. You keep a list of opponents and the order in which you meet them. 2. You must declare war on the first Civ you meet before leaving the diplomacy screen for the first time. 3. You must stay at war with that Civ until one of you have been eliminated. 4. You must declare war on the second Civ you met on the same turn that the first Civ was eliminated or 20 turns has elapsed (whichever happens sooner). This is to prevent sandbagging. 5. After each opponent is eliminated or 20 turns elapse you must declare war on the next civ in the list. 6. If you run out of opponents because you haven't met them yet and 20 turns have elapsed, you must declare war on the next opponent you meet before leaving the diplomacy screen for the first time with them The Xenophobic part of the variant runs as follows. 7. You may never own a foreign worker. You must never buy or sell one, and if you capture them they must be disbanded on the tile on which they were captured. 8. All deals must be at face value. No haggling. 9. You will not establish embassies. 10. You will never retain a town that contains foreign citizens. Such towns must be razed and any workers spawned disbanded. Also there is a puzzle involving some non-standard Barbarian Units. The puzzle is framed in the same way as it was for the original GOTM16, but the solution is different. The save will be available from >>HERE<< when the timelock is released. All of your teams save files will eventually be available from this link. When you finish your turn, you may upload your save to >>THIS<< link Have fun, and good luck everyone!
