If you're looking for this phase's flavor text, see Round Effects (flavor text).

Round Effects is the first thing to occur in any Round.

When a game of BGO is started, the turn order among players is decided. The player who is first in the turn order will normally be the player that begins each Round and also be the only player to control the Round Effects page. If said player leaves the game, the person closest before them in the join order (looping back to the bottom) takes their place for this role.

Despite Round Effects being treated as part of the controller's turn when considering how a Forced End interacts with it, win conditions are checked in-between Round Effects and its controller's (assume no hypnotization) Skip Phase. This suggests that there is no clear answer as to whether or not Round Effects is itself a turn.

Round Effects is by all means a global affair with all players' things being checked. All effects in this phase occur on one page each Round.

Some effects happen here even if the phase itself is invisible.
