I don't remember what I ate last night
but I can spout off obscure rules to all sorts of game like nobody's business!
So you have 4 persons. Player A wins turn order tile 1,
Player B earns tile 2, Player C earns 3+ with purple meeple.
Player D didn't bid or win a bid.
So A chooses a boat & contents 1st,
Then B chooses, then C.
Player C also gets the purple 1st turn marker.
Player C takes his turn 1st on next round. Then
who goes next ? Go clockwise ? Maintain previous
turn order for remaining 3 ? Or ?
Play goes clockwise from the purple guy. This is described at the bottom of page 3 in the rulebook.
