Hi - According to the rules "The last person on the passing scale becomes the first player of next season." I don't think that happened in the game i'm in.

Regards,
John

Why do you think so? According to the game log WizKid was the last to pass in season 1 and the first player in season 2. What's wrong?

As you quoted, the rulebook says "The last person on the passing scale becomes the first player of next season", and that's all. As I understand it, just the starting player changes, turn-order remains the same and is not rearranged according to the passing-scale (and if the starting player is the last to pass then nothing changes at all, like it happened in your game).

Edit: just checked on BGG and this thread seems to confirm my interpretation of the rules http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/129675
As some people think, it may well be that the "variant" is better but I really prefer to stick to the official rules, unless the change is approved by the designer.

you are correct the rules state to only to switch the order for the 1st person to go. and i assumed it was a switch for everyone on the passing order.

however it might be worded incorrectly. the 1st person to pass gets the advantage of all ties but the price is equally brutal - going last in the next phase.

i think passing 1st and having a scenario where they can also go second in the next phase isn't what the designer intended. no way to know.

but I agree. your code should follow the official wording.
