    I’ve encountered the snake draft through fantasy sports (and a real sports draft one time) and I would argue that position 1 at a disadvantage because the talent difference between pick 1 and pick 4 is significantly less than pick 5 and pick 6.

    The effect in picking dice rolls is probably different because there is no inherit value, it is just what you would like.

    It can cause tactical imbalances though because players 1 and 4 at some stage will be able to draft back-to-back which may give an advantage. On the flip side, they may also have to wait for 7 drafts before getting a dice which could be a major disadvantage.
