Just gone through my first couple of run throughs of this (solitaire) to understand the system before trying to explain it.
I appreciate that it is a co-operative game and that various things take place simultaneously. But, is there any preference in who chooses unique specialists or special items first and then second etc? I know as a Co-op game then it could or should be discussed (but the people I play with like to score even Co-op games) but that is all going to add to the time. Been through the rulebook several times and couldn't find anything. Dice off for first choice ?
