I' sure they are in the rulebook somewhere really obvious, but I can't seem to find the references to what certain counters are for.
I mean the counters with a black picture of a factory and the word industry. Are these simply to indicate where the Soviet, German and French cities are that can be captured reducing NARFs?
Also, the counters with a red picture of a factory and numbers? Are they used to indicate extra NARFs gained through conquest and alliances?
Thanks in advance.
Hi Alasdair - In order:
1) No, French and Soviet industry markers are used as memory aids for those countries' industrial hexes, each worth a specific number of NARFs. France and the Soviet Union each have markers with specific #'s of NARFs printed on them. The black and white "Industry" markers are for use w/optional rule 29.10;
2) well, you can use them that way as a memory aid - not a bad idea, really - but I use red and white NARF markers with the industry symbol to make a note of NARF grants - like when Germany grants NARFs to Italy. For US Lend-Lease grants, one can use either the specific Lend-Lease markers or the generic NARF/industry markers.
Hope this helps,
