Godzilla Blitz suggested in the Civ VI topic that we try something we'd attempted before, but not with this version of Civ. We're all going to start with the same save and see where it takes us. All are welcome to join! There is no time limit. We're just going to see how this goes.
I disabled all add-ons except the Rise & Fall expansion. I chose Prince difficulty, Small Continents map, Standard speed, and the standard number of civs and city states, all random with no duplicates. All the settings are default. You can see the settings screen here.
I believe you can turn on some add-ons after starting a game, but please don't enable anything that might affect game mechanics. Personally, I plan on turning on this one (Alternative Fog of War). I much prefer the look of this fog of war to the color-mangling parchment fog of war (Is that desert or grassland or plains under there? Who knows!).
You can download the turn 1 save here. Put it in your [Documents]\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization VI\Saves\Single directory for easy loading. No idea where that is on a Mac.
The game gave us Chandragupta (Indian). He is a middle-of-the-road leader, no victory-specific strengths, but his special ability that gives bonuses for each religion in a city means a religious victory might be a challenge. The early War of Territorial Expansion ability might be good for going wide, but probably won't help much with a domination victory.
I have not played ahead to look at at the area surrounding the starting position to see if it is good or bad, but the "settle in place" spot looks pretty good:
Please post progress in this thread, but spoiler tag anything that might give away map layout or enemy locations.
