The players all play as a team. There are no individual turns. All available resources, Items, Starting Equipment and special card effects can be used by any player, regardless of which character acquired them. All decisions which arise during the game are made by the players as a group.
However, each round one player is designated the First Player (designated by a token). The First Player is responsible for doing certain tasks and making some decisions during the round. Also, some penalties and benefits are applied to the First Player only.
In the first round, the youngest player is the First Player. The token then passes clockwise at the end of each round, during the Night Phase.
If you play alone, then you are always the First Player. Friday and Dog can never be the First Player.
