I couldn't find this in the rulebook. What is the order of anteing with more than two players? The section on the ante phase only refers to duels and the multiplayer section in turn doesn't mention antes. This seems like an oversight.

Isn't it just "turn order from the previous beat"? That's how it works with two players; I don't think it had occurred to me to wonder if it was different in multiplayer.

I'm not sure, but I guess, you'll go by the previous beat's priority order. Just extrapolating from what's in the rulebook...

Sure, that's a possibility. I didn't think of it mainly because the rules don't actually state this—they only say that the player with the highest priority goes first. It also leaves open the question of what to do on the first turn.

I don't think it does the last: it says on p. 20 that on the first turn, order is decided randomly...

Another thing not stated explicitly : presumably ante ends when all players pass in a row.

To be clear, it does end when all players pass in a row.
