For you experienced RRT players:

What would you say is the average number of turns you play before the game comes to an end? (I understand it is probably a function of the number of players--or at least a step function from 3 to 4 players--so feel free to treat it as such.)

I would do all the things I have ever dreamed of doing. I would love to become a professional whistler.I'm pretty amazing at it now, but I wanna get, like, even better. Make my living out of it.

I've never counted the number of turns. I'll try to remember next time we play.

It's difficult to say. The game can have a very different number of turns if the gamers choose different strategies (for exemple, one or two players can extend the game creating new cities). I think 10-12 turns is the usual number for 3-4 players.

I have kept stats in 33 games.
Out of 21 - six(6)player games, 16 have ended in 11 turns
out of 7- five (5) player games, 3 have ended on 9 turns, 2 on 10
The 4 player games were the shortest, 7 , 8, 8 and 9
I have never played 2 or 3 player

Thanks for the data; I admit not owning the game (yet...maybe for Christmas?), but it seems to me that after the first 2-3 turns in a 4-player game, Shares then only have 1 drawback: -1 VP. The -$1K/turn is compensated by the +$5K. Just an observation...
