Who goes first?

One way we at Double Burst determine who goes first is to roll an action die. One player names either “action” or “energy” and the other player rolls an action die. If they called it right, then that player gets to decide if they would like to go first or not. Flipping a coin or a high roll on a numeric die are also commonly used options. The important thing is both players agree on the method and the result is random.
