In Civilization 5, how may turns are there for each Game Pace setting?



  • I'm about to start a new game, and I'm using the Advanced Setup to customize the game a little. Does anyone know the number of turns for each of the 4 Game Pace settings to get to 2050?

    • Marathon = ?
    • Epic = ?
    • Standard = 500 turns
    • Quick = ?

    Or is it not that simple?

    More generally, is there a detailed guide anywhere to what all the settings on the Advanced Setup screen affect? Some have explanatory tooltips but some don't!



  • CIV5GameSpeeds.xml has all the information about what the different game speeds do. Adding up the number of turns for each speed gives us:

    • Marathon = 1500 turns
    • Epic = 750 turns
    • Standard = 500 turns
    • Quick = 330 turns

    You can also disable time victory, in which case there is an unlimited number of turns. I'm not aware of a guide to all the advanced setup options. Most of them I think affect the random generation of the world. If you have questions about a specific one, feel free to create another question.
