I was reading the back of the box of the new edition of Republic of Rome at my FLGS the other day and the play time said 3-5 hours. I see the play time listed here as five hours. What are people finding the playtime to be with the new edition of Republic of Rome? I might have a hard time getting my gaming group to play a five hour game, but if it can be a 3-4 hour game I think it's something we might play from time to time.
Unless the Republic falls, 3-4 hours is unlikely.
