Hello,

During the setup, the first player has less cards than the second one, who has less than the third one, etc.
However it seems strange: there is no clear advantage in moving first, while less cards in hand means less choices... Why is this? Did we make a mistake?

I haven't played for a while, but my memory is that this rule made sense to me at the time. My best guess: Since the game ends immediately when triggered, it is likely that the first player will get one more turn than the last player.

Or just start with the same n° of cards and make the game end when everyone has made the same amount of turns AFTER the end gets triggered.
