I think a good Italy politics house rule in G40 if that Italy isn’t at war at the start of the game. Italy can declare war to any ally power at any turn. UK and France only can declare war to Italy if Paris is conquered by any Axis power.
With this rule if you conquer Paris with Germany, the game is the same, but you cannot attack Paris, giving 1 turn more to France and saving Italian fleet keeping out british attack of first turn.
What do you think?
