Thank you for doing this poll. If I remember correctly, then the average time for solo play during our external playtesting was a wee bit below an hour.

All of these "real playtime" polls have always been like this. I'd rather have all of them follow the same structure.

Besides: Having a game take exact 90 minutes, 0 seconds, 0 tenths of a second, and 0 hundreds of a second is scientifically very improbable.

And most important, my teacher at marketing school taught me that forcing people to choose (instead of simply allowing them to choose the easy answer - in this case 90m) gives you more valuable information.

My average solo game is about 50 min.
Whenever I play, I figure out my turn, and then rapid-fire play the Automa, so it is always "my turn" (if I get distracted and leave the table, no confusion about the Automa having done its thing already).

Rarely, if I paint myself into a corner (with some of the odder board/faction combos) 60m.
