Melee Initiative

- - - - - melee initiative plot phase

Best Answer istaril , 07 April 2016 - 07:46 PM

Sorry if this has been posted/answered already.  New to the game, and I've searched all pages of this forum and some of the links in the forum guidelines, but couldn't find (or overlooked) the answer.

 

I've been playing melee with 3 to 4 players.  We have been playing (incorrectly, I think) with the player with the highest initiative pick whether he wants to 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc...   However, I notice the rule reads...

 

The player with the highest initiative value wins initiative, and chooses which player is the “first player” until a new first player is chosen.

 

The rules also state that the only difference in Melee is the selection of titles.  My question is...

 

If the first player selects who goes first, how are other slots determined in Melee? Does the first player also select who goes 2nd, 3rd, etc...  or does initiative move to the left of the first player?

 

TIA.

 

Play proceeds in player order; First player, then the player to his or her left, and so on until all players have had a chance to act. 

 

Given this, the player who wins initiative *does* get to choose whether they goes 1st, 2nd, 3rd ... by picking the right player to go first.

Thanks!  We've been doing it all wrong.  Highest initiative picking his spot, 2nd highest picking his spot, etc...
