From the perspective of playing by email, it makes some sense to move first then move the board. This allows a player to move on the board as he sees it, since the Game Courier has no facility for updating the board before the players moves. But moving the board first is virtually logically equivalent to moving it last. Moving the board first can be simulated by changing the starting position to the first rotation, then rotating the board at the end of every move.
