This is 1BC's official Beyond the Sword Game of the Month for May 2009. BTS version 3.17 is required for play.

The settings:



Note: Advanced start is ON!

The random civ ended up being Winston Churchill. His traits are:


Your starting area:


Highest Normalized Score with ANY victory condition will be declared BTS GOTM Champion for May.

When you complete the game, take a screenshot of the Victory screen where it lists your leadership counterpart in history. You may post the screenshot in the GOTM thread and then Email your final save (hopefully one turn just before victory) to gotm@1bcciv.com. Saves should be named as follows: [username]May09BTS.CivBeyondSwordSave

Submissions will be accepted until June 1st

What are the rules?
The rules are fairly simple: Play fairly.

This means that you play within the spirit of the competition. As it is a friendly competition, we like to believe that there is no real incentive to cheat - but unfortunately, people do. Any persons found to be cheating will have their games removed, and there is a strong possibility that they will be banned from participating in the future.

Cheating includes (and is not limited to):

1. Playing the game multiple times and submitting the best effort (or even playing to get knowledge of the map, the replaying then starting the game again).
2. Using any sort of programs to edit the game or save files.
3. Altering the XML or using other mods that give you an unfair advantage.
4. Reloading an earlier save-file and replaying turns in a different way. The only time you may reload a save file is to start a new play session, and you must use the save file from the end of your previous session.

Also, if in doubt, ask. If you think you have found a new loop-hole or exploit, then we strongly suggest that you ask as to its legallity before you use it. The aim of the competition is not to see who can exploit the rules, and as such, we reserve the right to disqualify submissions based on exploits that are discovered later.

Good luck and Enjoy!!

I avoided any special victory conditions this month since last month had such specific ones.

This was about the 5th version of this GOTM. I had some bizarre maps that were generated before this one, including one where we were the Mongols, but had no one else on our roughly Australia-sized continent. Others, were small, or we were cut off from other people, on a tiny peninsula with another civ on the base of it, etc. I played this one a little bit last night and was relatively pleased with the map and decided this was the one.

This game is probably not a huge warmonger one, but I suppose you can always make it that way.

As always, I think its fair that since I created this game, I declare myself ineligible from winning it.

Here is my lackluster score:

If you guys want a nation-building game, this is a good one.  Since I declared myself ineligible from winning, I didn't go warmongering except for the immediate island.  Oops.  Am I giving anything away?

Frankly, once I had the immediate island, it was a bit boring of a game.  I hope you guys have a little more excitement than I did.  Maybe someone will pick a fight with you, unlike me.  I won via Spacerace.

If you want a high score, I think you pretty much HAVE to go beat people down.
