When I conquered a city state I chose to turn it into a puppet. The dialogue promised that I'd be able to annex it at any point. How do I do so?

Just left click it =)

  • That brings up the city screen, but it's still in a puppet state - I can't change production. Nov 23, 2010 at 10:37
  • Hmm.. this always asked me if I wanted to annex the city now. Strange.

  • Solved! See my comment to CJM's answer. Nov 23, 2010 at 11:43
  • @Tommy, if a city is still in a state of revolt, it won't be able to produce anything. This doesn't sound like your problem, but maybe.

As Jens says, if you click on the city name, a dialog box should pop up asking if you want to annex the city, or if you want to leave it as a puppet (and it should indicate the Happiness impact of such a decision).

Is this not the case for you?

    Aha! I've been playing using the strategic view because my computer can't really handle the graphics. Clicking on the city in the normal view does what you say. Thanks. Nov 23, 2010 at 11:42
