Hi all,

We're doing a playthrough with some newcomers and we're confused about activating minors. If you can control the minor, can you activate it even if you don't have points on the minor? If so, how can you accumulate points on a minor if other countries can activate your minors and waste many of your points?

As long as your MP is allowed to control the minor and you have played an option that allows activation, you can activate that minor. This means it is an entirely viable (in fact essential) strategy to activate minors to "burn off" your opponents points and prevent them moving that minor towards them.

You will find that, unless you get very few options played each turn due to low die rolls ending the political phase early, that the points will quickly build up. Remember that your opponents also want to move minors towards them so they cannot spend all their time frustrating your plans.
