If you are playing with the proper number of board sections and tokens then the board will be filled up when you run out of tiles. The game is over - follow the rules for determining the level of influence each player has achieved and award the honor of Samurai!

Are you playing Reiner Knizia's Samurai?

If so, you need to make sure the board is composed of only the right number of sections for the number of players you have. If this is done right you won't run out of tiles before the game is over.

In other words, you won't have the need to resupply anyone with tiles (you leave the tiles on the board even after the bits are captured) throughout the entire game.

Remember that the game ends when all of one type of figure has been removed from the board. So if all the Rice Field figures have been captured, the game ends. You don't keep going and wait until everything else is captured. You shouldn't ever run out of figured. Also, as people have pointed out, if you are playing with 3 players, only use 3 pieces of the board, and if you're playing with 2 player, only use 2 pieces of the board (which pieces are specified in the rules). Finally, you do NOT get tiles back after they capture figures, the tiles stay there until the end of the game (or until you use "tile swap").

I guess to be clearer, I think it's impossible to run out of tiles if you have the right number of board sections.

Correct - the rules state you remove the figure (High Helmut, Buddha, Rice) but not the tiles. Which makes sense as almost all the tiles impact 2 cities. So if you are removing the tiles after capturing one city - you are removing influence from adjoining cities also - making for a longer fight (and more tiles) to control.

As others have stated, if you don't remove the tiles and you play with the correct number of map sections - you won't run out of tiles.
