is there any rule about who is the starting player in BGA Pandemic games? Last role picked? Some ELO-related way to determine who starts? Table-starter?
And if not, if it is truly random, how about adding a note in Log about who is to be starting player - either before picking roles, either after all picked roles, and they need to see initial diseases, so other players are "waiting for other players". That would allow to start thinking about the moves efficiently, instead "if X starts, then... if Y starts, then...".
