The BGG pages says 120 minutes. Is this accurate? Most of my wargaming is after work, and 2 hours is about the limit that we can play.

Hello,

This time is pretty accurate

Rules are straightforward, terrain chart is down to a few movement costs and combat modifiers.

If your partner and you are accustomed to wargames you can do it

For your first game with the setup you could play up to 150mn (a few drinks, phone calls and pictures taken included )

After grasping the mechanics you could even get it down to 90 minutes. I've done it. The concepts worked so well we used them for the Battle of Belmont and are considering four more ACW battles.
