    I tend to play 2 player Civ (two humans, bunch of AIs). My housemate tends to host (better computer) but this meant he was always going first, so lately we've tried "Shuffle Teams". And indeed, this does move around who goes when, but it does so in a broken fashion.
    What it seems to do is randomize the play order... but then still start with the hosting player! I just started a game a few minutes ago, and watched as the hosting player took his turn on game Turn 0, and I didn't get my first turn until Turn 1. It's minor but I do doubt that it is the intention of this option to cost some of the players a turn.

    Is this something that can have anything be done with it in a mod?

    If I understand correctly, it's just the very first turn where this goes wrong, so if there are seven players and the host is randomly placed in slot 4, then players 1-3 get skipped in turn 0 but afterwards everything plays normally?

    I can definitely see how this could happen given what I understand about how turns work.

    Yup, that's exactly what appears to be happening. Which is in its way minor but I did get beaten to Buddhism by one turn. :p
