You will need a winning condition because England, Ireland and Schotland can not be assaulted from the mainland. For example Berlin, Moscow, Paris, Athens and Bucharest?

Can you organize the map to look more like Napoleon Europe? Might be easier to understand. At the moment all the colors are same tone and everything kind of blends in together. Also, is this the small map or large?

no problem to add more colours to the map.

it is small one. I always start with small one to see how much space I will have.

I'm really struggling to read things in the legend, and I have a nice, large monitor.
