Hello,

First poll... Just seeing the average game time for Forbidden Stars, please. Might be a little too long for my weekly game group. We sporadically meet for longer sessions - but not sure if it sporadically, sporadically hitting the table is worth the outlay!!!

Your votes are greatly appreciated

Wrong forum, and also there is no poll.
Welcome to BGG, the most complicated forum for new people in the world!

Can't get it to work...

Average 3/4 player game? More than 3.5 hours?


Cheers
Brad

Use the search box.

Enter the game you want.

Go to that game's general forum and post there.

Check out Clockwork Wars. It's a pretty darn good dudes on a hex map Euro'ish steampunk game. Quick and fun.

I put up a thread for you in the Forbidden Stars forums.

It's this one: What's your average playtime for 4 player Forbidden Stars? [Poll]

We had a six hour 4-player game last week ,with an hour of teaching for the three new players on top. I typically expect a 4-player to take 5 hours. A 3-player I'd expect 3-4 hours, depending on how familiar players are.

If you used a bracket, BGG uses those for commands, so it may have confused something.

Or did you use an emoji from your keyboard? I don't know if that works. Use the old fashioned keystroke emoticons, or the shortcut smileyfaces above. Just don't forget to click off the "Disable emoticons" down below. (And you are welcome!)

Emoji was from the keyboard. Guess I'll stick to the ones BGG supply.

Thanks for the poll, definitely answered my question!

And thank you for the tip on how to get stuff in the right place!

The reason I couldn't get the poll to work: it doesn't like 'more than' or 'less than' symbols < > and instead of saying that, it just kept telling me the whole box was empty, even though it clearly wasn't. I'm sure the forums idiosyncrasies are charming once you've discovered them all Dp

So even the emojis they supply don't work! Charming. It's all very charming

What saves Forbidden stars is two players, I would never play it with more. It is quite fast and there is no downtime during combat. I'd say it's 90-120 minutes.
