How long does this take to explain
- Eddie B(burrie)United States
I love playing games, but it seems I am always the one explaining how it works. My wife and new gamers usualy have a limited attention span for new rules. I have noticed that if you can't explain a game to a newbie (or my wife) in less than 10 minutes they start to lose interest. However, I like to explain the rules well. I recently bought a bunch of games and want to know what you guys (and girls) think. I have also put in a few examples to see if you agree with me or not.Recommend
Help me out here, how long do you think it will take me to explain the following games using the "burrie scale". The "burrie scale works as follows.
1- Explanation that takes less than 1 minute
2- Explanation that takes anywhere between 1 and 2 minutes
3- Explanation that takes anywhere between 2 and 5 minutes
4- Explanation that takes anywhere between 5 and 10 minutes
5- Explanation that takes anywhere between 10 and 15 minutes
6- Explanation that takes anywhere between 15 and 30 minutes
7- Explanation that takes more than 30 minutes
Please keep adding to the list I would like to have an overview of how long it would take to explain a game. Let's assume we are explaining the rules to age 14 and over with a normal IQ.
