Endeavor, At First Glance - Fun, But It is a Flawed Game

During BubbaGeek Con, we were introduced to Endeavor. Generally speaking, I love games were we are building something. In this game, you are building a commerce engine. I have played it three times, and have noticed several trends. All three plays were 5 player. All three games had a brand new player winning with a 30 pt spread such as 65-28. The game flaw is in the start player mechanic. The mechanic is not really a mechanic, who ever goes first, the next first player moves clockwise. Thus in a five player, the first player is 1st player twice and only 5th player once. While the fifth player is fifth twice, and only 1st player once. The game is a respond game as opposed to a grand stratagey. Thus, going first and fifth, are a disadvantage. In addition, by the end of turn #2, each player is already on top of each other. I need to play this as a three player. Maybe 4 player?? Pat is focused.
