I'm itching to spring Machina Arcana on my game group, but I'm worried that it might be too long to finish in one sitting with 4 players. Our usual game nights are 3 hours (could stretch to 4).

For those who have played, what do you think? Do I need to plan a 6 hour marathon session or not?

If you are confident in your understanding of the rules (and Juraj just published a FAQ here in the forums too), then you should be able to easily complete one of the shorter quests. It really plays quite quickly once you grasp the principles.

In my first game, I played the first four chapters of the first scenario and it was a tough battle in less than 2,5 hours.

Edit: None of us played the game before and I was the only one who knew the rules so I'm sure that a second time would reduce playing-time by at least a half hour.
