Hi,

yesterday I played my first two-player game, we alternated the start player each round because that felt like the right thing to do, yet I could not find it anywhere in the rules?

Do you need to alternate start-player in a 3-4 player game? And why?
It's not that it matters right? Maybe if you have to draw cards in turn order?

Thanks meeple

We also do this in the two player games, since one player having the first choice from the initial set of revealed tiles in all seasons seems to be a big advantage.

When you are drafting in 3-4, it does not seem to matter much.
If two players want to do the same thing, though, it might matter - but I can't think of anything at the top of my head right now

At the end of the Harvest phase the first player token gets passed, I assume it's the same for the 2 player game

The first player token passes to the next player (clock-wise) at the end of every round. It is written on page 7 on the rulebook (bottom of the page).

The same applies to both 2-player games and 3-4 player games.
