The region of Europe has 7 territories and gives the player that holds it an additional 5 reinforcements per turn.
Europe is perhaps the second most difficult region to conquer and hold after Asia. The region has four points to defend from as opposed to North America, which has only three points to defend from and also gives an additional 5 reinforcements. The only advantage that Europe has over North America is its smaller size, making it slightly easier to conquer. The most effective way to conquer Europe is to do so quickly, preferrably before Africa or North America is taken by an opposing player.
