The player who goes first rule has become more of a personality play than anything else. Since it often doesn't matter, and people are going to choose who starts how they are going to choose it, for years it has become about standing out. With some board games, they opt for the player who goes first to be something easy like age, but some have blown people away with their creativity or how well they work into the game's theme.
