I like the Empire Builder series, but usually restrict it to 3 players due to the length involved.

Can this game really play in an hour and a half with 5? 6?

I don't think so. I normally play with four and I'd estimate that it takes us around 1 & 3/4 or 2 hours. It won't take 5 or 6 a lot longer, maybe 2 & 1/4 hours, but it depends on how frequently players take part in races on 'borrowed' track.

2.5 hours is still fantastic for 4+ players. Great news, I indeed!

Thanks!

Railway Rivals is a much simpler game to play, but can still drag on towards the end during the racing phase. I think 2-3 hrs is about right for 4 players.

I think I'll look for one of those 'average die' for the racing portion. I understand the designer used one with sides such as '2-3-3-4-4-5'. I guess the idea is to keep the racing side close and competitive.
