1) Spread the shuffled deck FACE UP so that players can see in advance
which players will get to move on all future turns. As you approach the 52
move, reshuffle the used cards and spread them again.

2) Each card tells you which player will move first in a pair of moves --
so that if the first 4 cards are 2S, 2C, 2H, 3S -- the move order would be
BWBWWBBW. No one ever gets more than 2 consecutive moves.
