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?

  • Are puppet cities counted towards the limit of 3 imposed by the “Bollywood” achievement in Civilization V?
  • Should I stop building a wonder if I find a rival is likely to beat me to it?
  • How can I improve or work a resource that is more than three tiles from land?
  • What are the effects of Civilization V responses to other leaders?
  • Do I need to rebuild a courthouse if I re-conquer a city I have captured in the past?
  • How do I play the “Cradle of Civilization” DLC?
  • 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!

  • What happens with research when there is a 2 vs 1 game in Civilization 5?
  • What changes have been made from Civilization 4 to 5?
  • What determines the gain from the Honor policy and Aztec unique ability?
  • What bonuses does a “deity” level AI get and how do I deal with them?
  • Can I play hotseat with mods?
  • When are submarines visible?

    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, there is a 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.
