Oh. Missed that.

<me>so whoever gets to go first will force the other

Yeah, but the point of my example was that your other skills aren't so good.

Well, anyway, if you act first, either your opponent will have to use his best skill at an improv penalty, or he'll have to use one of his other skills which may be far from the best.

Either way, acting first is going to make all the difference between two people with markedly different skills.
