Should You Go First or Last?

Players in the upcoming game must select a numbered vest that will determine their playing order. Initially, players pick numbers in the middle of the order because it isn’t clear whether it’s beneficial to go first or last. When there are only two players left who haven’t selected a number, their choices are to go first or last. Eventually, we learn it’s better to go last in this game, but the players don’t know that when selecting the numbers.
