I know that a soldier cannot capture an elephant but can a soldier in a chariot or on another elephant capture an elephant? also: can a soldier take over a ship or galleon with an elephant on it?
I don't have my game rules in front of me... but:
A lone soldier cannot capture an elephant (once he moves off a chariot or elephant he is a lone soldier)
A chariot w/rider can capture an elephant
An elephant w/rider can capture an elephant
Can a soldier take over a ship or galleon with an elephant on it?
No, because a lone soldier cannot capture an elephant
You could maybe house rule the ship and elephant are destroyed... but I would stick with no.
