Re:Conflict between rules pdf and explanation docs
Keep in mind that there are two situations that require ordering: who becomes canal builder, and who chooses their planatation. For becoming canal builder, it is clear in the PDF that "If several players have passed, then the player who was first to pass becomes the new Canal Overseer". This is consistent with the DOC files. The statement that you quoted, that the player who passed last goes first, is in response to choosing planations. A better set of statements would be: The player who becomes the canal builder always chooses last when placing plantations. If multiple players pass, then the first player to pass becomes the canal builder, while the last player to pass selects and places a planation before all others who have passed.
