From the other thread:
Nice review. Glad you enjoyed the 2p rules.
In earlier versions of the game the order of player was determined by company performance. This led to two problems, a) companies deliberately underperforming to guarantee first place in the ensuing order of play, and b) perfect information aboutthe performance potential for the following turn. This made the game far too dry. In reality stocks are not predictable, otherwise some brokers would be a lot richer than they already are. All you can do is invest in companies where turn order is not so crucial, or you can take a chance.
I sure would like to know what the rules were for company performance turn order? Just in order of performance (best to worst) during the round? I would rather give the "far too dry" game a try rather than give the "random order nonsense" game another try.
