Both Tom Vassel's review and a google translate of the italian rule "Il giocatore in ultima posizione nella plancia" says the last player rolls the dice, not the first player.

Is it an advantage or a disadvantage to be the one who rolls in a memory game? Any ideas which way it should be?

For the record, the English rules say the last player rolls to. I'm not sure if that was in question or not.

I think being the one to roll is helpful. Its easy to get sidetracked and miss a few seconds at the start of the roll, if you are chatting, or glancing at the board, or reaching over to steal your opponent's munchies while she's focused on the game. If you are the one rolling, you are focused on the roll and know exactly when its hitting the box.

Yes, the last player rolls the dice.
I think this is because WWW is a family game and so a kid which is at the last position may at least roll the dice - as I have experienced, they love to do so.
