And we are already at the 2nd Civ6 GOTM of the year 2023! Since we released this GOTM before the latest leader pack, it does not feature the new Chinese leaders.

You need to go for a science victory, and prevent that any other civ reaches another victory type. You have until February 16 to dominate the planet with pure knowledge.
