I've got the nagging feeling that I'm playing the first round slightly wrong, so I'm handing my anxiety over to the BGG community!

My interpretation of the rules is that each player starts their turn by drawing one cube at a time THEMSELVES until they have a line of four patients outside of THEIR OWN hospital. Placing any graysles in the stock, of course.

Okay, so the places this could falter:

1. Do all players do this simultaneously? I have each player doing it separately at the beginning of their turns.

2. Is it more like subsequent rounds in that you're getting the cubes from another player and can place them in any other players' hospitals with the only difference being that there will be no gray cubes?

Thanks for your help! And to the design team of this game: I was really surprised by the fun and elegance of this game on my first playthrough. Great job!

I read it as it's always the player to the left that takes them from the bag. For the first round, any grays are thrown into the stock and another is pulled from the bag to replace it.

I read it the same as Mr. Bread; player to the left draws until they get four patient cubes; all graysles drawn that first round go into the pot.

Agreed.
