I want to get this game, but if it's really that long per game there's no way my group would want to play.
What's a realistic play length for 2-player once both know what they're doing. And same for 4-player?

Is there any way of customising game length like there is in Dinosaur Island?

Thanks!

I’d say 90 minutes to 120 is pretty accurate, particularly for 4 players. No way to shorten like in Dinosaur Island.

Without setup, I would say about An hour for a 2 player game with 2 experienced players.

Our three player games have clocked in at around 90 minutes.

Two player can be done in an hour. Our 4 player games tend to be almost exactly 90 minutes. Don't think I have ever hit 2 hours even with rules explanations.

Your comments lead me to believe, OP that your group thinks 90-120 is unreasonably long for a single game. Even though I love this one, if that’s the case, I’d skip it.

2 players wet play in under 45 minutes now. But yeah it's correct for more players.

Correct! 60 mins is absolute max for the attention span of my hubby!
Hmm 45 mins would be ok for 2 player but I thought I’d read this was better with more than 2...

Keep in mind that’s after quite a bit of practice too. Even with only 2, your first few games will run 90-120.

We just played our first 5-player game last night and it was just over 2 hours including rules explanation. I feel like after a couple plays we could get under 90 minutes.

Every game I've played (6 games) with various player counts 2-4. No game has lasted more than 90 minutes. Most games are just over the 60 minute count
