Turn advantage is a term describing an advantage for a player based on turn order. Usually, the first player has an advantage, but occasionally the second (or last) player has an advantage, depending on the kingdom. If the first player ends the game, he will have taken one more turn than the second player (and all others), which is a huge advantage, remedied in part by the fact that if the game ends on a tie, the player with the fewest number of turns is the winner.

Some cards that players consider giving the second player an advantage include:
