So I was reading the in-game help on how to achieve a domination victory, and I got a little confused.
It said something about the last civilization possessing their original capital is the winner. Something about "if you capture 3 of your enemies capitals, and the 5th player sneaks in and captures your capital while you're not looking, they are the winner and not you."
This makes sense except it counteracts what I thought I had learned from playing the game. I thought that you couldn't capture a civilization's capital unless you had captured all their cities first? But maybe it's that you can't capture their LAST capital unless you had captured all their cities first?
Kind of a civ newb, thanks for the help.
