Just played our first game of Watson & Homes last night and we really enjoyed it! I do have one question regarding the first player though. Does the first player stay the same each round or change? I may have missed it in the rule book but I didn't see anything about it changing at any point in the game. If so it seems like it is a disadvantage to go first because all other players have the chance to outbid your location. Maybe there is a clear advantage of going first that i'm not seeing. If someone can explain why this is or just tell me I'm a dummy cause I missed the rule about the first player changing each round I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

During this stage, the turn continues passing from player to player until everyone has placed his pawn on one of the Location Cards. At this moment, the last player who placed his pawn takes the Start Player Token (the Diary) and players move on to The Investigation Phase.


Emphasis mine

Looks like I'm just a dummy and missed it. Thanks Carlo for the clarification!
