The target of the game is to gain control over all territories on the map. In the beginning, you get to choose how your team will look and how many players take part in the game (all are computer controlled in this version). Game starts with a randomly created map on which all units are located or choose the map of Europe to play on. Your units are always on a blue territory. Pay attention when choosing a map to play. Remember that you receive reinforcements by the amount of territories you have that are connected. If your units are in territories adjacent to each other, it is easier to win. The strategy for an attack or a defense is simple. Choose a territory of yours with two or more units on it to attack a neighboring territory. If you have an attack card you want to use, choose it and select the territory you want to use it on. If the defender placed a defense card on that territory from a previous turn of theirs, that will be played against the attack. The cards are played out (if any) and then the normal combat roll proceeds. Whoever wins the dice roll wins the territory. The more units you have the better chance you have of wining.
