How do I capture cities?

  1. I cannot capture enemy cities.I take them all the way down and it is just constant hitting them.I thought i was able to annex cities once defeated?

  1. You have to make the last hit with a non-ranged unit, ranged units can't capture a city.

  1. You can only capture a city once you have it surrounded on four sides (the war minister should have told you this in one of the tutorial pop-ups when your first attack one). Once you capture it you'll have the option of completely annexing it which increases unhappiness, or installing a puppet government which will keep happiness higher but gives you less control over the city.
