I need to watch this. For such a simple game it sound insane that there would be over 30 minutes of game play explanation or what 40 or 50 to make it "well under" an hour?
He explains almost every decision he makes during the game and intersperses that with rules clarifications and/or restatements. This inflates the play time quite a bit, but is necessary given his playthrough format, which is somewhat similar to the Rahdo format where a single person is playing for multiple players.
I just saw the official play-through, with only 3 players, and it goes over 90 minutes. Can a 4 player game reasonably be expected to play in under 60 minutes? (15 minutes per player.)
What makes you think the JonGetsGames video is an official play-through?
Well it's featured on their KS as "watch this to see how it's played" type wording from the creators. Seems semi official. My disappointment in the video is the amount of rule blunders he makes. Makes me question if Jose actually does get games. He should do a 2nd without the mistakes, would serve them better or do it themselves and ditch that video.
