In the manual: "Give the play who last destroyed a civilization the Starting Player token..."

How on earth can we resolve this rule? Curious....

We're gamers. Many of us destroy civilizations on a regular basis...

Just do what it says.

However, if none of you have as of lately destroyed a civilization (is that even possible? what have you been doing?), just give the starting player token to a random player.

No, before playong the game, all players must go out to destroy a civilization. Afterward you can give start player token to the one who accomplished this task last. The slowest one?

Technically you only need to have one player who has destroyed a civilization, and it need not be immediately before the game. If only one player has destroyed a civilization then it doesn't matter when that occurred -- even if the player was a baby when they destroyed the civilization! (Serious gas, maybe?)

But why take chances? If you're a serious Gentes player, you should make a point of destroying civilizations at every opportunity. And in particular, you should schedule time to do so just before playing in a Gentes tournament!

That's the spirit! Nuke 'em 'til they glow! Then nuke 'em some more for good measure!

I just colonized the stuffing out of several continents last night in Endeavor. Don't have my copy of Gentes yet, though, so I guess I'll have to refresh when I get it...

We just normally roll a 20 sided die to determine starting player.
