Using random seat order

By default the players are seated in the following order (from top to bottom): Jack (defensive player), Helen (expert player) and Tim (limit maker). The default seat order is beneficial to human player, since Tim, as a limit maker, is not particularly careful with discards, so the human player is likely to get from Tim tiles that he can claim for a Chow (remember, normally tiles for a Chow can be claimed only from the previous player).

Four Winds 2 lets you use random seat order, in which case the computer players' seats are determined randomly when you start a new game.

To enable the use of random seat order:

  1. Choose Preferences on the File menu.
  2. Choose Players from the category tree of the Preferences dialog box.
  3. Check the Random seat order box.
