I am playing Risk: Legacy with four friends and we just opened the latest envelope.  This envelope changes the start of the game.  Now their are 5 cards in several categories that are drafted at the beginning of the game.  The order of the draft goes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5… and soon until all the cards are picked.  The card categories are start order, placement order, starting number of troops, starting number of coins.   I think this would translate well to other games.  At the beginning of each round the players would draft for resources…just another quick idea.

    Other games do this. I know that at the start of a Settlers of Catan game, the first player picks, then 2,3,4 5, then its 5, 4, 3, 2, and finally back to 1. This give the first player the best choice at the start of the game, but also the worst choice.

    It’s a great mechanic where it can be applied.

      I understand the Catan comparison but what I like about this is that there are several potential advantages…being the start player, having a resource advantage, having a financial advantage…so there are five players with play order of 1st 2nd 3rd 4th and 5th, five money cards $20, $15, $10, $10, $5, and five resource cards 2 wood, 1 wood, 2 gold, 1 ore, 1 gold. Each player can only have one of each card. What do you take? Start player and then wait another 9 turns before you get your resource or money? Think it would add another aspect to a game.
