Hi,

How would you estimate the playing time with the following criteria?

- 4-player game, 4 new players
- All players have carefully read the rules beforehand
- Most of the setup done in advance
- 15 influence per player
- All elements of For The Glory expansion except the king variant
- All players are experienced gamers

Between 4 and 5 hours, I'd say.

No sense in rushing through a game like this. Crack open some beers and give yourself a long afternoon at it.

I found the best thing to do with experienced gamers was to play up to and including the first Assembly as a learning experience, and then re-set and play for real. It took us a shade over 5 hours.

I'd say about 4 hours too. If players turtle it'll be more, if it's battle heavy it could even finish in less time.

Under 6 hours would be good, so 4-5 hours is just great.

Agreed. Would normally be 4ish hours but if everyone's new you're going to be checking rules a lot, so 5ish hours.
Let us know how it went!

Sure. I'll probably write a session report.
