Can someone please explain to me how minor powers can be resurrected in a game of Versailles? I'm still a little confused by it. Thanks.

It's the PlayDip implementation of the "Liberation Rule".

Here is one explanation. There is probably another place that has the full rules someplace else on the forum.

Sock, liberation, or resurrection, happens along the following lines...

In Versailles a major cannot take over the home center of it's minor. It can travel through it, but it stays in the minor's control if you're visiting in the Fall. When a minor's home center has been taken by an enemy, it's major can later occupy the home center and reclaim the center "for" the minor. In effect it takes the center but the "ownership" of it is the minor's.

The minor's home center reverts to the minor's color, occupied by the liberating major army/fleet. The minor cannot build a unit there until after the major's unit has moved out, in a Winter build phase a year or more later. There is a caveat to this situation where the major must disband a unit in that Winter build phase. The major can disband the unit occupying the minor's resurrected home center, and the minor can build there in the same turn.

This is my understanding of the Liberation Rule.

The Playdip Versailles rules are here

Salty is correct of course :) . But one clarification; this is bidirectional. So it covers two partner countries, whether the major is liberating a minor national SC or vice versa

Now, that's interesting. I didn't realize a minor can liberate a major. Thanks, everyone for the clarification.
