We have a yearly board gaming retreat, it lasts between 3 and 4 days. I'm wondering if a group of 3 or 4 people could get through this game in that amount of time. Given that we have probably 8-12 hours a day to do nothing but play games.

You should have no problems getting through the entire campaign in that time.

I don't want happiness by halves, nor is half of sorrow what I want. Yet there's a pillow I would share, where gently pressed against a cheek like a helpless star, a falling star, a ring glimmers on the finger of a hand.

I haven't even played Pandemic Legacy yet, but since Pandemic normally can't go very much over an hour (since you'll lose if the player card deck runs out), and you'll play at most 24 games, it seems like you'll have plenty of time.

Depending on pace of play, how quickly you get the next game going, how many players, and how well the games go, each game will take about 1 to 1.5 hours, including all of the Legacy stuff. (Super fast groups could probably do it in as little as half an hour or something; super slow groups could take 2 hours per game. Adding players will increase the length of games; my estimate assumes 4 players, so shade on the shorter side of that estimate for 2 player games.)

The campaign is a maximum of 24 games and a minimum of 12 games; my guess is that around 16 or 18 games might be average for experienced boardgamers, but that's highly speculative. So that means that you're looking at something like 12-36 hours, with maybe 24 hours of game time being about average, for a whole campaign. 3-4 days of 8-12 hours of boardgaming should be plenty, but you might end up spending almost all of the retreat on Pandemic Legacy--not that that's a bad thing.
