Evo has seasons, though in keeping with an unstable climate of early Earth they don't necessarily go in order.

There's an expansion for Agricola that incorporates seasons, but I don't know that it specifically uses it to denote turns.

We'll toss the dice however they fall, And snuggle the girls be they short or tall, Then follow young Mat whenever he calls, To dance with Jak o' the Shadows.

Not a turn mechanic per se, but more of a trump mechanic by seasons that determines play order, can be found in Thunder:

A Castle for All Seasons doesn't actually use the seasons as a turn mechanic, though. You just get to choose which season you play the game in; the board has a winter side and a summer side. The season stays the same throughout the game.

About a hundred wargames have seasonal turns.

Just saw Pint Craft mentioned in another thread and you can download it as a free print-n-play right now.

Good luck!

Would make a good geeklist. I'm mildly surprised there isn't one already (at least, not that I could find).
