One element folks seem to really like in EH is the ability to choose the first player rather than do a straight rotate left. Has anyone tried this with AH, and if so, how did it play? I would think it might make the game a bit easier, just not sure how much.

I wouldn't do it, simply because the Stopped Clocks environment card already does it. It would feel less special.

Ah, that's a good enough reason right there not to do. Don't want to nullify a Mythos card.

I think it's a great variant as it adds strategy and reduces chances of wasted and boring player turns (eg. allowing someone to kill monsters so someone else can get out). I wouldn't let a single Mythos card in the final expansion (meaning your mythos deck is probably a foot high) stop you from using it. In any case, Stopped Clocks still provides a benefit since you can choose any turn order in any phase.
