Competitive Games

The idea here is similar to the Game of the Month posted on other sites except I will probably only post a game every 2 months.  To explain, I have created a game and saved it at the first turn.  I will at least play 5 turns to make sure the starting location is not awful.  The object is for all of us to play the same game and post our scores.  This gives us an accurate comparison against each other.  It's all for fun and trash talking.  It also gives us better discussions when talking about your game to others because we all know the game.

Some Ground Rules (enforced on the honor system):

  1. You may not reload previous turns.  Which means, you can reload your current turn only.
  2. You must complete the game and turn in your score before you restart.
  3. All scores should be turned in, with a saved game from that turn (so turn on auto save) emailed to me.
  4. You must not discuss future parts of the game with someone who has not reached that point yet.

NOTE: you can download the game any where but the best location is XXX\Civilization\Conquests\Saves, where XXX is the root path of where Civilization 3 is installed.  By Default XXX is C:\Program Files\Infrogames Interactive.  The reason this is the best location is because this is the default location of the load file dialog.
