I am wondering how long it will take to play a full turn by turn game to teach my nongamer group how to play?

Its a little bit ambiguous as you could avoid each other indefinitely, but I would say 60-90 minutes.

In turn-by-turn, my games never took more than 30-45 minutes!

What I would do is use the Real-Time side, and probably 8 to 10 turns in (make sure each team has used a special or two so they know how it works), make sure everyone has their roles down, then switch into Real-Time mode from there.

It's not suffering at all! Turn by turn can be great and really tense. It's a very different experience to real time but by no means a bad one

For our first game we just played turn-by-turn until the first hit was scored and then restarted the game in real-time.

My group played for the first time last night. I taught the game and then we played 5 rounds turn by turn on the real time board. After the 5th round we had a Q/A and everyone was comfortable with their role. I gave the group a chance to start over but both teams opted to keep playing from the current board state. I don't know if I would want to play full turn by turn game with 8 players.

We played two 8-player games in a row. First game everyone was new: 10 minutes. Second game: 11 minutes.

(This was simultaneous--not sure what you mean by "turn by turn.")
