I see the entry has a 60 minute game length... but I see others claiming much longer.

How long does one race take with 4-5 players, on say the basic set up?

Thanks!

About an hour; allow an hour and a half just to be sure. The basic setup's pretty quick, though. If you play with four, use just two riders each; use one rider each if playing with five. It's not a particularly long game, but the first game might see people dithering about when to break away; byyour second game, asking everyone around the table if they are breaking away will take mere moments.

It took us 3 1/2 hours for the 1st race. Of coarse we always double the required time due to strong drink and a couple of slow players. It also dodn't help 3 people broke away from the start so most of the race was working out the mechanics of moving riders, They all realized the mistake so should stay in the peleton longer next game.

Wow. I'm staggered you managed to take that long - though I can see how very early breakaways would lead to a longer game. How many players did you have and how many riders each?

Anywhere from 20 minutes (2 players, 4-5 tiles) to 4 hours (4-5 players, 21 tiles, early breakaway).
