Here are some important things to know about this game:
1. Again, please note that currently, the Play the World files are for version 1.14, not the latest 1.21. See above for details.
2. Remember to cover the lower right-hand corner of your screen when loading this game in Play the World, so as not to see a minimap of the entire world before you even begin.
3. There appears to be a bug in the civ selection screen, where you can change the preset civs. You can also dictate which civ a spot marked as "Random" will occupy. I highly suggest you do not play with any of these things, and just leave the upper right-hand corner of this screen alone.
Here is a screenshot of the start location:
