    My personal Favorite is domination. The only problem is that they usuall spring it on you rather suddenly. Its not like space race or diplomatic where you have total control over when you win. I would say that i would like diplo. the best if afterwrds, it actually gave you control over the world.

    Time (or cultural). A fair change to win for all.

    Of course domination and conquest are also fair.

    The space race and diplomatic are always out in my games.

    Cultural. The fairest way.
    I like conquering lands without armies.. with cities around 100-600 cultures/turns (those Buddhist stupas, Cunfucian Academys and these others are good choices) ;)

    Conquering everyone is sometimes fun, and I'd enjoy diplomacy if they didn't shanghai us into becoming the United States during the end-game (yes, I am a US citizen, but I STILL think that's lame, cultural imperialism anyone?), but I have to be honest, if you haven't conquered everyone then the only way to "win" is to have the highest score in the time victory.

    So what if you flee my super advanced highest all around score culture in a space ship? In a little bit I'll follow you and still be better than you. So what if you have three great cities if my whole civ is beating you to death in general? Eventually I'll take your three legendary cities because I'm just that good. If I'm still around, and I'm still all around better have you really won anything?

    So when I win those ways it's cool, but I still don't feel like I've really won the game, unless I also have the highest score, in which case I might as well play on and see if I can KEEP it until 2050 anyhow. Of course I understand a lot of other people feel otherwise. My best friend thinks winning by score is weak, for about the opposite reasons.

    Conquest/domination is probably the most satisfying, however for the sheer effectiveness/surprise factor (especially in MP games) I like Cultural Victory the most, especially as it fits my gameplay style a good deal (I like cultural expansion, wonder races and industrious leaders). That's also why I'm looking forward to playing as Ramesses (Spiritual, Industrious).
