During yesterday's game we saw that the player sitted on the right side of the last player in VPs has a tremendous disadvantage because if the player with less VPs doesn't abandon the last position, the one to his right has the most disadvantegous position of all and not because of his own actions so we are thinking in including a turn order track with the game so that not only the start player but all players are ordered in VPs ascendant order.

In fact, the player who was the last for most of the game had chances to win only because the one before him (me!!!!) screwed things up too many times... After that play I reaaaaaaally love the game as it punishes just the simplest bad action as it was yesterday to give away the last factory token for using the last work space... No money from that moment on

After the first trial game using the original rules, we also figured the First Player issue. We also changed the game such that every position (not just the start player position) are determined according to VPs. Ties were broken by previous turn order. It worked excellently! You just only need to present something to indicate the turn order of each player. The game is so much better, and makes better sense.

I'm thinking about something simple, a card with four positions numbered 1 through 4 in which you put one of the action pawns.

In fact, Netrunner's runner's action card fits with that idea:

I think this is the way to play. Curious why this isn't the official rule. Any thoughts?
