Game will start with a flip of the coin, the player winning the coin flip will get to choose who starts the game.
The ban phase is an important part of the early game. Since players will select 3 cards to place in the Sharedboard, each player will be allowed to ban one of the opposing players cards, so only 4 final cards are then placed into the Sharedboard.
Once the bans have been selected both players are presented with 4 starting cards, the players can choose any of the 4 and replace them with 4 new random cards. The cards replaced are shuffled back into the deck.
