I got Ovid as a great person. The game tells me that Ovid "must occupy a district or wonder with a free slot of the proper Great Work type".

What are those?


Ovid is a Great Writer, which means he produces works of writing.

The simplest solution is to send him to your capital, as the Palace has 1 slot for any kind of great work. If your palace is full, your next best bet is to build an Amphitheatre in a Theatre District, and activate him there. (Amphitheatres have 2 slots for Great Writings).

Beyond that, some wonders also have slots for Great Works of Writing: Bolshoi Theatre, Broadway, The Great Library, and Oxford University.

  • Won't work in my capital, even though he is my first great person (?). Silly me - I tried campus & library. I will try an amphitheatre & get back to you – Mawg says reinstate Monica Jan 29 '17 at 14:37

    @Mawg It's possible you have a relic (from a goodie hut or an apostle) in your capital. – Raven Dreamer Jan 31 '17 at 1:04
  • Not that I am aware of. But this is my first game of 6, so I still have a lot to learn - and this seems to be the place to do it (I can remember getting a reasonably thick paper booklet with a previous version) – Mawg says reinstate Monica Jan 31 '17 at 21:01

    @Mawg: You can check the art slots (and art pieces) in one of the menus in the top left. The button that looks like a framed painting. – Flater Feb 20 '18 at 13:01
