This is a list of all games that are rather long, but can be played in numerous intervals of time. I bring this up because I am planning on doing this a lot in the upcoming summer months, where I want to set up and play a game, but only in half and hour to hour intervals, not all at once. Feel free to add games to the list which are games that are not only fun, but can be drawn out over periods of time.

This is, of course, you have basically an entire room to yourself which can be devoted to board games for a week or two without interruption. I am lucky to say I have this

Everyone knocks this game, but during the school year my sisters and I would set up this game, then do a turn a day, more if we had the time. We'd finish in a week or week and half, and it was actually enjoyable. In my opinion it's the only good way to play (not to mention some home rules!)

Another game I couldn't see sitting down and playing through. Do a whole round (three months and a production round) per sitting, and it's about 30-45 minutes a day. A nice break from things and very amusing.

Here's my first one where it's not NECESSARY to do it in multiple sittings, but I am wondering from others who own the game if it's still possible to enjoy it if it's played in multiple sittings, or does it just get to be a chore? I am considering buying it, but I think I will. Any opinions on this would be nice!

Another game I don't own but want to (I mean... it's SO BIG!) and also would look good as a nice play-in-intervals game. Not that I know. Any comments?

Not to say I wouldn't want to just sit and play this big... beautiful... lovely game...

The entire European Theatre of World War II. This would work extremely well, just don't peak at your opponent's blocks when you're not playing!

You can play Diplomacy a turn at a time and even keep the board on your wall, saving table space.

Since this one supports solataire play, you could drift into the room from time to time and take a turn. Of course, it's better with more players, but the Solataire game is fun as well.

The original of the two "Civilization" games, and the better of the two by far.

I'm currently in a game of this. We've played two sessions of about 4 hours each and we're a little over halfway through. GREAT game!

We played this game in college in the early 80s. It was played on a large table that we left over a number of days. We often used multiple players per side to take the roles of different leaders for both the empire and rebels. Each player was responsible for moving his leaders and units around the galaxy.

Thought I'd chime in with an ASL plug...a good campaign game of any HASL module can go on for days. Allocate several hours to looking up rules and placing pieces along the way.

Beware of cats, strong breeze, small children, or earthquake that could knock over stacks an ruin hours of play.

The group I used to play BT with did it in a semi-roleplaying campaign. Now, those are normally ongoing events anyway, but the individual battles often would take several sundays to play out (40+ 'Mechs in play during one ambush - quite the epic scenario). It was great fun... until college began to devour my time.

Here ya go.....add all the expansions on to this puppy and you have one MONSTER game. Columbia will be reprinting the maps so they fit together better and should be GREAT. The game play is very rewarding and worth the investment in my mind!!!!!

This one can be played forever The cyclic scenario allows you to join the game mid-way through, and leave whenever you want to. Basically you start as a Barbarian, convert to a Kingdom, become an Empire and then collapse when corruption gets to high - ready to restart as a Barbarian ...

Really needs a re-release with upgraded components
