IT takes about 3 hours to play a 5-player game.

What's the average for 3 players and 4 players?

3 hours for 5 players? Do you games regularly end early, or do they go the full term? Our games last more like 4 or 5 hours, and rarely end early. Since a lot of the actions are simultanious, there isn't a lot of time saved with fewer players.

So I'd say in your case since it seems you play pretty quickly.

2++ hours for 3 player and
22.5++ hours for 4 player

Our games last under 3 hours on average, regardless of the ammount of players. turns, at least in my playgroup. I think some of us are just I think once everyone knows what they are doing the game goes by faster. Also, it is very rare for a game to go full 10 turns. I guess some of us are a lot more blood-thrithty then others angry

Our games almost never go over 3 hours. I can't imagine taking 4-5 hours to play AGoT!

Re:how long does 3-4 players take?
Our games tend to run much longer. about 6 to 7 hours. Even our 4 player games tend to run that long.
We were surprised when recently we played a game in 2 1/2 hours. Everyone was like:"What did we do wrong?"
But there seems to be a lot of politics and diplomacy involved in our games.
Luckily I don't mind those long games.

I'll say it again, on average in my group AGoT is at least 4 hours, might even be more than 5 on average. I'll admit though that my group is more methodical than most groups. There tends to be a lot of negotiation, I mean a lot of negotiation. Framkly it isn't any shorter or longer than Diplomacy.

I should add that in my group the game has never ended early, lasting all ten rounds. We work together to stop anyone from winning early. All this takes time to coordinate.

I've bought the game a month ago and I play during lunch time with 3 of my coworkers at least 3 times a week...
We play without any diplomacy and its everyone for himself.:0
We only have an hour, so the guys play really aggressiveangry and always try different startegies:0 so everyone has fun.
It happens that our game last less than an hour, but most of the time we declare the victor with the most fortress after an hour.
These short game are lots of fun and help you find new strategies
