Hello,
I've just played Five tribes, and idea for first player bidding for Stone Age came into my mind.
I hate that there is nothing you can do to be first player in SA, and you have to wait for it, and usually, you lose stuff you wanted.

So, Idea is to players to be able to bid with resources and food for first player, same as in Five tribes.
So you have 3x0, if you don't want to spend anything, you have 2,3,4,5,6,12,18, for instance.
So before new turn you can spend, let's say gold and 2 x wood and you are at 12.
You can spend 3 x food to go on 6 and so on...
You use values of resources as they are when you are rolling...
I'll try this tonight, but, you guys are much smarter than me, and maybe you can tell me why not to try this cause, probably, this idea is nothing but stupid.
Thanks.

I don't dislike this idea ... I'm interested in hearing how you think it worked.

I think bidding points may be a better option though - similar to Tikal's auction variant. All you'd need to do is start everyone at the same number of VP. 20 is where Tikal starts, so that might work.

I'll check Tikal rules, cause I've never played it.
Points bidding is nice idea too...
First, have to find how it works in Tikal.
Thanks

Sorry for bringing up the past, but how have you found the first turn order selection?

Sorry for not replying here.
It worked, kinda...
But as we, mostly, play it 5 player it becomes chaotic. Who is playing now?!?!?! My turn?!?! but it is group thing, not variant problem.
But with 2 or 3 I would not play without it.
We use bidding tile from five tribes with those values. And pay with resources only, so food and teeth (from expansion) can't work.
I really like it.
I think I might try it again with 5... Hmmm. Being first is really powerful thing in this game.
