Try this: Whoever starts the game in last place begins the game with the wood Blimp piece. This way they can turn it in for a +1 when they start the game. Of course in the unlikely event a previous player builds a blimp, it has to be turned over, but this is not likely in the very first turn of the game and at least the person in last place gets a little extra help. This may be best useful in 4 player games.

Just to note, you don't actually turn in the wooden blimp to get a +1 bonus. You just get a +1 bonus to each roll as long as you've got it. So doing this would give the player in last place a +1 bonus until someone else built an airship.

Unless the variant is that they have to turn it in when they use it. Just the 4th player, and just the first time they use it (if they use it before it gets stolen).

All other play is normal in that you keep it once you've earned it until someone else takes it.

Hmm, maybe you are right for the intent. And I guess they mean it to be on their first turn ONLY. So I guess not quite as good as getting an extra +1 token.
