The Campaign game is made up of 5 Assualt Phases. Each phase is average 12 hours long- that is a leisurely pace sometimes, other times strict game-time is closer to 15 hours. 300 minutes is definately too low, but three days would be to take the full campaign at one go- a sure way to burn your brain out.

As we get better, our games do get shorter, but I cannot deny that this one is a marathon. Months usually go by between assualt phases for us. If you want a shorter version, there is the one-phase Assault of Gallus scenario, and some other short scenarios are available online.
