    Depends what operating system you are using.

    I have Vista and mine are:

    My Documents > My Games > Sid Meier's Civilization 5 > Saves > Single
    (if other than single player game it will be under one of the other options for last choice)

    It took me a while to find it the first time so I created a shortcut on my desktop. That way whenever I download a start file I just open the shortcut and drag it right into the folder without having to find it each time.

    Excellent, thank you for that.

    For what its worth, this info should be in the introduction to the latest GOTM. Its kinda crucial to letting people take part...

    Cheers

    If you're using mods, the save game will be in Documents/My Games/Sid Meier's Civilization 5/MODDEDSAVES/single (Modded saves won't be capitalized - just wanted to emphasize that slight difference).
