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 last in the turn order will have Round Effects occur immediately after their turn ends. (If they leave the game during their turn, the player right before them in join order will have Round Effects.)

In some ways, Round Effects functions as if part of the turn of the player who is last in the turn order.

  • If there is a Forced End during Round Effects, the player who is first in the turn order still gets their turn.
  • The player who is last in the turn order can be Hypnotized during Round Effects.
  • Pillow and Lost Memento can be used successfully by the player who is last in the turn order during Round Effects.
  • Pick Snowballs can successfully be used during the Snow round effect by the player who is last in the turn order.

However, win conditions are checked in-between the turn of the player who is last in the turn order and Round Effects, which is a way that Round Effects does not function as if part of the turn of the player who is last in the turn order.

Special traits of Round Effects are:

  • Win conditions are checked right after continuing from Round Effects.
  • There is a slight delay once Round Effects starts before players can continue from it.
  • All players are able to continue from Round Effects starting at the same time, long before the action timer runs out.



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.
