      From the rules:
      "Players should keep their game's final save file. Although file submission is not standard for Epics games, the game's Sponsor or an Epics organizer may request files from players for verification purposes. In addition to the final saves, players may want to keep save files from earlier points in the game to enhance discussion. Sponsors may choose to require saves at particular points in the game, although this is not standard for every event. If earlier saves are necessary, this information will be provided when the game is announced."

      Translation- Most of the time, all you need to do is keep a copy of your final save file, but don't submit it unless you're asked to. I think we've had a "pop quiz" file submission for one Epic in the past, and we certainly reserve the right to ask for them in the future if that seems to be indicated.

      I also personally find it interesting to be able to check my own saves during the discussion to compare my game to others'. YMMV as far as that goes, especially if your notes make more sense than mine usually do.

      Tourney Mission Statement:
    Existing Civ III tournaments, contests and group events are universally plagued by elements or shortcomings that lead often to compartmentalized results. Spoilers and privileged info is readily made available while games are still in progress. The game itself remains in flux through a patching process. The scoring system measures only a few elements of the gameplay. We at Realms Beyond are not satisfied to settle for these conditions and compromises.

    The Realms Beyond is home to gamers who go beyond the norm, who creatively add depth to good games to make them better, who choose to set our own added limits to gameplay for the purpose of increasing challenge, varying gameplay flavor, and getting more out of the games we love. We discard the usual standards and venture into realms beyond, where we share our passion for gaming with one another, and with those who are like-minded.

    We develop and refine our tournament as we go, with the help of the players. Each game is subject to rules, but we keep the framework light, the emphasis on excellence, the focus on the spirit of the game. Come and play. Share, compare, teach, and learn.
