Hey guys,

I try not to take playing time from the creator at face value, and it is one of the more important aspects of a game for me, as I usually have ~90 minute game sessions.

So, my question: is the 30 minute per player accurate?

Thanks

Probably once everyone knows what they're doing. In the learning phase, not even remotely.

Even if you knw the game, you will still find that one guy thats "hmmm.. Wonder what im going to do now" at every dwarf placement just min/max the most.

My group(3 players) spendt 2:30 hours last round, and i felt most of it went on rails without much waiting. So probably 45ish minutes per player if they halfy knows what to do?

45 minutes per player is realistic.

I'd say 40 min/player is reasonable. I played a 5 player game last week and we were on a deadline (my smoked brisket wasn't going to eat itself, plus other stuff); we pushed through the second half of the game not allowing anyone take more than 3-4 min/move (most moves took 1 minute), and we ended up with a 3 hour game.

I play 2p in about 45-50 minutes, and most 3p games take about 1 hour 30-45 minutes. I haven't tried 4+ yet. Setup and teardown takes a while.

But I'm a very fast player so ymmmv.

I like to budget 60 min. base + 30 per player.
