The red dots on the map are 'supply centers' (I think that's the name...) and, if you have a supply center, it can support one army or fleet. Each unit (fleet or army) needs the support of another unit to 'push' another country's units out of the space. This support can come from your own guys OR the guys of another power, if you can convince them to help you. The centers are added up every other turn so if you gain or lose them, your army will get bigger (and more overstretched) or smaller (and more compact...).
I would think that a separate thread for each game might work a bit better to keep them straight.
