Hey all,

I get the chance to put my hand on a 35€ new version of this game. I love LoW and the theme looks nice on that one. I'm starting to wonder if that game isn't a little bit too long though as i can read here and there...

If you have any info about that, don't hesitate to share.

It may depend on your group. When we play two players, we are usually finished in an hour. We played three players with a new player and it took 90 minutes.

I would say 30 minutes per player.

Definitely longer than Waterdeep. There is more blocking so turns can drag a bit when that perfect action was taken. Also there is a trading phase that can drag. I'd say closer to 45 minutes per player until everyone knows all the cards.

I'd say that's pretty accurate

With rules explantions, we took about 3hours for a first 4-player game.
I was never bored so I didn't mind at all.

Our first game took a while (and we didn't complete it).

Our second game (a three player game) took about an hour and a half - with bunch of the time at the beginning remembering how to play.

If the time limit is a major issue then reduce the number of rounds you play. You likely will not do many of the Black missions but that is okay.
