A turn is a time unit given to every player in the game at the rate of 1 turn every five minutes (December 2011). These turns may be spent by the player in various game related actions. Sorcery Quest even gives the possibility to the player of buying new turns with Tokens. A Player can buy turns when propmted when their turns run out, or anytime by double clicking the clock icon on the left top corner of the game. You can buy 5 turns for 10 tokens, 15 turns for 20 tokens, and 30 turns for 25 tokens. you can also get 10 turns for recomending a friend, using the referal program. Maximum number of turns a player can have is 30. More than 30 can be reached if turns are gifted or purchased via the starter chest.
As of July 2012 the turn system was abandoned.
