Hello guys,

I'm considering buying this game and the thing that has been putting me off the most is the game length (which I know that can vary with the amount of investigators in play).

I plan to play exclusively two player games with each controlling one investigator only (I know that most people recommend two investigators each for better scaling but we don't like to control multiple characters).

What do you guys think it would be the average game length after we are decently comfortable with the rules considering we would use only one investigator each and we would use the companion app (in order to cut down setup time)?

Best regards

The average is 108 minutes, so more like 1 hour 48 minutes

I was under impression that starting the number with "About" denotes approximation or rounding.

and I was under the impression that when it comes to time, rounding is usually to the next quarter hour. Well, no need to dwell on ^^

Certainly, "about an hour and a half" is within the 1-σ reported limits of 1.8 ± 0.8 hrs.

But the upper limit on 1-σ is 2.6 hours, and that's noteworthy.
