Stairway scare, Dan Dare, who's there!
I love the game, it is compact, simple, quick and fun. I play it with my wife almost every day now.

There is one problem though and that problem is being the Starting Player.
Out games usually end during the third week, by filling two locations with houses. I find it a great advantage to be the Second Player right before the influence check.
You can do all nasty things right before the influence check and the Starting Player can just look as he cannot react.

This being said, during our games, the player who is the Starting Player at the start of the game gets this advantage 2x (two scorings during the second week), while the second player 3-4x (depending when the game ends during the third week).

Do you guys also find this unbalanced? Did you for example try to change the starting player every day instead of every week?
