So after my first game, in regards to me probably not reading the rules correctly

The Old Ones - If we have an Old One that has a recurring icon, does that mean it happens at the end of each persons turn, or the actual end of everyone's turn for that round?

Which Old One(s) are you thinking of? I didn't think there were "recurring" effects. Either they are one-shot, or are continuous effects that last throughout everyone's turns and all phases of the round.

that may answer my question then, i was asking in regards to the one with the swirly icon on them

managed to get the 'take 3 cultists out' one on my first ever go, it ended the game pretty quickly

i wasn't sure if that happened at the end of each players turn, or the rounds turn end

The reason Azathoth has the persistent icon is so that you can use the Seal of Leng relic to undo his effect and return the three removed cultists to the supply.

This. The reason it has the persistent symbol is because once he awakens, you must play the rest of the game with 3 less cultists than you would normally have.

i totally didn't read it right then

i was under the impression that those with the 'swirly' icon meant that you had to do that at the end of everyone's turn...every time!!

we took 3 cultists each turn after he was awoken
