The player who has the most points goes first in the 2nd and 3rd rounds. (It's noted at the beginning of the Field Phase section of the rules) It is actually a slight disadvantage to go first, because players can steal bones out from under you. Emphasis on the "slight" because moving first is also good (but then people can steal bones before you collect them). Hope this helps. Enjoy!
D'oh! So you're right. I checked and double-checked. I guess I was looking for them at the end of the round and set up for next round part of the rules, but you're right, the rule is right there.
So I guess my wife and I played it slightly wrong as she was always behind and I let her go first every round. I ended up beating her something like 145-120. Could the wrong rule have likely contributed to such a massive lead?
It's just as well, she destroyed me at both games of Tiny Epic Western we've played so far.
