Sometimes the designers are just lazy about that part.
The youngest starts, the oldest starts, select randomly, choose any way you like and so on.
Come on, I know that I can do that any way I like. But give me something unique, or at least connected with the game!

That is the part in the rules that I really like to look at and I almost always at least try to follow it, except maybe for a case when I teach a game and want to make the first move to show how it goes.

I will try to gather here interesting ways of choosing the first player, which I encountered.

Feel free to add the items yourself!
