There was some mystery regarding the turn order track (the one with 5
circles). From quickly reading through BoardGameGeek, it would seem
that this track was added at the playtest stage in response to
playtesters that wanted to use their own auction mechanism for turn
order. It was left on there when in game went into production for the
benefit of anyone that wants to use it, but rules for its use were not
included in the rules booklet. The way most people would use it is
that the first person to "pass" in an auction occupies the last
position and the winner of the auction occupies the first position.
The other players occupy the other positions. I guess that would be in
the order in which they dropped out of the auction. Something we could
maybe try the next time it gets played.
Anyway, I hope that clears things up a bit.
