    Both GOTM40 and GOTM41 are supposed to be played at King level, nicht wahr ?
    Playing GOTM40 I had 1 turn = 10 years after 1AD (which is what happens usually at King level IIRC).
    Playing GOTM41 I have 1 turn = 20 years after 1AD.

    Is this specific to my game ? or has anyone else noticed that ?
    Any idea about the reason why ?

    I think I heard somewhere the size of the map can affect how many years a turn is, as well as the level you're playing at.

    Iirc, Duke of M came back with a similar reply about a year ago -- about the same question, about the same answer.

    Yes, map size is a factor in the number of turns that are in a game.

    Interesting....I was wondering why the years were moving so quickly.
