I would like to see Versailles supported for escalation.

In order to overcome the second power secrecy issue it would work as flows:

Major powers allocation phase works exactly the same as for other maps. That should keep any code changes to a minimum.

For Versailles add a new phase to follow that randomly allocates the minor power home centers from the unallocated SC's and links each of them to a major power.

Because the minor power allocation is unknown during the escalation phase this does not affect the secrecy.

The big benefit of this approach is that it overcomes the lopsided differences in power between the minors (compare Spain to Greece, for example).
