How long does this game take to play? The back of the game says 3.5 hours. But the VP website says 1 hour.

Some scenarios could certainly be played in one hour, but the whole shebang is at least three and a half. It takes me four or so, but I'm not the swiftest boat in the current.

When you say the whole shebang, do you mean all the scenarios?

Sort of -- I mean the "campaign game", 1941 to 1944.

This is definitely a game where your first game will take much longer than subsequent games. Different way of thinking. Our first game we played the first scenario in about three hours - I think it would take half that now, at the most.

I'm not convinced I could play the whole game in four hours, but I'm not a fast player, I admit. Maybe five or six.
