Most games have a player who plays the first turn or who starts the game. So how do you choose that player from the many eligible candidates hovering around the board in anticipation? Some games specify a method, others leave it up to you. So what's your favourite method - either specified or a house rule?
To get the ball rolling ones I've come across recently that tickled my fancy:
- Ticket To Ride: Who is the most widely travelled player?
- Kreta: Who is the youngest player?
- Timbuktu (this may be a house rule ;-) ) Who has ridden a camel most recently?
- We often use: Who's birthday is next?
If you've a favourite, post it in the comments.
