Twisted logic

Every now and then I'm reminded that I tend to have my own personal logic that isn't quite the same logic someone else might follow.

Playing a game of Scene it: Television Edition a couple of nights ago for the first time, I was reading the rules allowed:

" It says "We roll the dice to see who goes first". I really don't see the point in that". I said.
"What do you mean?" Replied Ms. Allclick.
"Well how do we decide who rolls first to see who goes first in the game? Why doesn't whoever was going to roll first, just roll first for real and start the game?"
"You do see why that makes no sense?".

She ended up going first.

And winning.

I would agree with your logic. It's probably more fair to flip a coin or say "the youngest goes first" or something like that.

Youngest goes first is fair. Except when I play games with my brothers.

We also used to have this stupid thing were as soon as the game was over you yell "Winner packs up/Loser packs up" depending on how you did :-p

I guess it partly depends on whether going first gives you an advantage in a particular game. At my house it's youngest goes first.

Regardless, your conversations seem less confusing than mine.

Wife: Which one do you like, A or B?
Me: I like A.
Wife: Hmm. /chooses B
