So, now that it's been out a few months, what timeframe are most of y'all completing your games in. I game on weeknights so 2-4 hours is the perfect range. Can the new Bobby Lee play within that range?

Jeff,

I think that you should be able to finish any of the yearly scenarios in that time frame without too much trouble. 1862 is my personal favorite.

Is it realistic to play a yearly scenario faster than 2-4 hours?
I have just bought the game and was kinda hoping to be able to play the full campaign in around 4-5 hours.

BTW it is correctly understood that the yearly scenarios are not balanced?
It seems that victory is determined by having your side end the year with a better VP score than you started with, and that doesn´t (given my very limited knowledge of the ACW) sound as both sides have a roughly 50% chance to do.
For example I would expect that it would be easier for the USA to gain territory in the 1864 scenario than the CSA (even including their one bonus VP for holding out). Is this correctly understood?
