Although I gather in the later DG edition every player got an event card once per turn or something like that, the SPI rules (i.e., those of the edition I own) seem pretty clearly to say that in each round the player who has chosen to go first draws an event card.

Am I understanding that correctly?

No, Each person draws an event at the start of their turn.

Round or turn? I.e., every 5 in game years or every 25? I presume the former.

Also thanks!

Every Round sorry. Each player's round consists of drawing an event and then playing their year cards.

Thank you. I don't see how to get that out of the wording of the rules but it simply makes more sense.

In answer to your question, on page 5 of the SPI rules in the Sequence of Play, part III. The Rounds, section A. The First Round, step 7. First Player Turn, the first line reads: 'The player who has chosen to go first begins their player turn by drawing a card from the event deck.'

Man, that read like a legal reference...

Anyway, there's where it's stated. It is also stated again under the Procedure part of rules section [19.0] Event Cards: 'At the beginning of the game, the Event Card deck is shuffled. At the beginning of each Player’s turn during each Round, the Player draws one Card from the top of the deck.'
