Order of Players

Postby WorldCup4James on Tue Jun 22, 2010 5:58 pm

In one of my tournaments, I have 4 players playing 6 games, and I'm wondering how I should choose the order of players. I believe there is a big advantage for when a player takes his turn, in terms of spoils and initial attacking. Would the best and most fair way to choose the order be by choosing randomly, or should the best player go first, and the weakest player go last?

Here's the link if you want to see the tournament I'm talking about:

Thanks for your answers.

You can't pick who goes first in a game, only their colors/order.
