Right now me and my wife only play involved games after our kids are in bed. Which typically only gives us 1-1.5 hours to play. The description says 90-180 min. But the games effectively come in two halves. Are the halves equal? Do they each take 1.5 hours to complete?

Yes, each half takes about 90 minutes.

It took us about an hour for Part 1 and an hour and a half for Part 2. Three Nazgul players. Experienced players, but not in HftR.

With two or three players, I think 60 minutes per half is likely.

My family and I are slow players - Part 1 takes maybe 2 hours.

It really does depend how long you both spend analysing the position. There's a reason serious chess games use clocks.

I would not reccommend to have too many Nazgul players. 2 is the sweet spot.

I like as 1 Nazgul player also, becouse then you can make up evert move and choose which nazgul to use dice. But you miss out on the discussion.

2-3 players is sweet spot, 90 min per part is what you can expect. probobly closer to 2h if you ad more nazguls players.

I played it 2 player with my wife. We are not fast players; each part took about 2 hours, maybe a bit less.
