Hello,

How long does a 2-player game take? when you first play, and then after a few games (how many?)? I am mostly interested in the game length for players who like to take enough time to think (without analysis paralysis, though).

I could only find one thread that mentioned this, where a poster said that the first game takes about 1h30, and that you can reach 30 minutes (I don't know how many games he played before reaching this playing time). Is this your experience too?

Any information would be appreciated!

90 mins sounds about right if you are both taking "reasonable" consideration of the moves, i.e. no major analysis paralysis. 30 mins?! Seems too quick, RE is a bit chess like in its play with 2. I mean that in a good way though.

I tend to agree. As you get more experienced, the "automatic" moves become quicker, but some moves become slower as you appreciate the strategic alternatives and start planning further ahead.
I wouldn't try to fit a game in a 1-hour lunchbreak.

The 2-player game does take us about 40 minutes. but we are fast players.
