My wife and I play games for fun - and though we have a few friends who also like games, we mostly enjoy the two player experience. From time to time, I'm also producing walkthrough videos of our favorite games.

-- Start Player

Credit for this goes to clearclaw, but I like this so much, I use it almost exclusively now. It's the Remainder Game.

Give each of the players a number in rotation starting with 0. Then have each player stick out some number of fingers on the count of three, using one hand and zero to five fingers. Add up the fingers and get the modulo of the total number of fingers divided by the number of players (ie. use the remainder after division). The player with that number is the start player. The requirements that drive use of the remainder game are:

a) Efficient and quick
b) Deterministic results
c) Actually random
d) Short execution time (linear with the number of players)
e) Works with any number of players in any situation
f) Works with any game in any situation
g) Is clearly auditable by all concerned
