Can they still conduct attacks on other nations?

Yes they can. The problem, in particular for France, of running out of control markers can be resolved by placing a single control marker on the captured capital of a major country when all of its areas are controled by a single country. That frees up control markers to be placed elsewhere.

Okay. Thanks. So you do have to free up control markers to proceed? Can a nation remove a marker at the moment they need to?

Spain and Russia are severely limited in how far they can expand, based on the limited number of control markers.

If the solution I recommended earlier does not solve the problem then a player can make hand made control markers. The important point here is a country is not resticted in continuing to conquer areas because there are not enough control markers. The current players control markers are an artifical limit created by how many the game publisher put on a counter sheet.

This is the heart of the matter. The rulebook is explicit on the subject of miniatures being limited depending on nation, but does not cover national limitation regarding control markers.

Thanks, Michael.

In general, if a rulebook is specific about one thing and not another the specific case only applies where specified. So only the miniatures were limited.

It is entirely possible that the designer or editor or publisher missed this, however.

I'm sure worthington wouldn't mind you photo copying your existing markers for yourself if you ask them nicely.
Whatever you use something flat is good as space in the territories get pretty limited anyway.
Took mea while to get into this but a very fun slick world dominator with a few twists.
Very enjoyable for its type of game.
