Ok, thanks. Just wanted to make sure as it seems at times you may want to go earlier (through change of first player in a "round") if you want to occupy a certain region first. Of course your card draw makes this nearly impossible, but it could seem like the 1st player is always getting 1st dibs at occupying regions.
There are no real "rounds," per se. Turns just keep going until the game is over. After it starts, there is no "going first" ever again.
