As turn order is clearly a big factor in Hansa (having just suffered through several games where I played after a dominant player), it would be nice if there was an option to have this not be random. Being the second player puts you at a big disadvantage, I feel.

I think that in the vast majority of cases players would choose to go for random order, so I doubt I will ever implement this, but how would you propose to determine it?
(Maybe an auction, where the player offering the most money to the site admin can decide the turn order... yes this could work very well :)).

i would _love_ to be able to choose turn order in richelieu and samurai (2p).

in 2p games it could be a creator option: random (default), creator first, guest first.

Yes, this could work for 2p games, and I can definitely see the issue in Samurai (I'm to the point that I don't think I can lose a 2p game if I go first, short of some very unlucky draws). I will think about it, though I would prefer a more general solution that works for multiplayer games too.

For hansa, I would just request that the game creator be able to assign turn order. Maybe all participants would have to agree to this? I see how it is complicated, but it seems that in most cases the player going first has a big advantage.

I really don't see the point of getting to choose the play order ...

1) If it was so usefull/mandatory to the balance of the game, it would be proposed in the boardgame (or as a know variant) like in tikal ...

2) Random means ... random! Sometimes you are lucky, sometimes not ... like the setup of cards in richelieu or the order of scoring cards in Kreta ...

3) If there is an absolute edge of playing first or second (like Mabi says about samurai) then we certainly don't want the creator to ensure him the best place !!! (who wants to plays agains me and be certain of loosing 8) )

So basically ... I could say I don't see any interrest in this :wink:
