Hi all,
Just got the notice that this is coming in the mail yeah. I mostly play games 2 player with my wife. What are your thoughts on the long versus short game for two players? What are the play times for each?

Any suggestions for getting started.

I don't play short games of any game. That said, I enjoyed the 2 player long game.

Short is quite a relative term when it comes to OeL...I have enjoyed the shorter version quite a bit

Thanks for the responses. How long does the short game take? how long does the long game take?

FedEx says tomorrow delivery, yeah.

My wife and I have just played the long game. We played twice, the first time - including the rules explanation - took 3 hours, but we were both amazed at this, as the time just seemed to fly by. The next game took just 2 hours, and I suspect this would be typical for the future. We both love the game! Hope this helps.

For me it's the same, mostly 2p with the wife. Since she isn't to keen on long games, we only played the "short version" so far, which takes us about 60-90 minutes now that we have the rules down.

We were not too happy with the open ending, where the game can take a lot longer; that is easily houseruled, however.

I read a lot of different times for the length of the game for 2p.
i)I heard 2h is minimum.
ii) Then someone say 60-90 for the short game and 2h for the long game.

The second statement would be ok for me, but what is correct now. It depends on the group, but me and my GF should be mid-fast gamers.
