What purpose does the generation marker server in a 2+ player game? Are there cards that reference where it currently is on the track?

I have been wondering the same thing. Have not seen any cards that reference it. Only reason I have run into is if you are doing the draft variant it keeps track of what direction to pass (even left, odd right).

Knowing how long the game will last on average (10 generations in a 4p game) allows you to evaluate income cards. Yes it serves no purpose other than thematically counting generations, no cards interact with it.
