The 90 minute playing time....is that based on the short or the long game?

Most games, Long or Short Dungeon are 75 - 90 minutes. It is the number of players that drive the playing time for the most part - 3 players games less than 60 minutes usually, 4 and 5 players 75 - 90 minutes in the many games I have played. I do not believe I have ever had a game run 120 minutes, but I assume a game could, especially with new players.

Our 5p learning game tonight took 130 minutes, after setup/rules. We played the short version, and on the final turn if the dragon had not been killed, the game would have ended on an escape. If the exit hadn't been blocked for 2 turns in a row before that, the game would have ended sooner.

Clearly it would go faster now that we know the game.

Hello,

New to the game, just picked it up on Friday and got in a play last night. I am curious - how was your exit 'blocked'?

I don't know the proper terminology, but the special event (dragon damage) card said "Nobody can run" two rounds in a row.

Ah, well that makes sense then. Obviously not a card I had come up in my single play through! I was worried that I had misread a rule on movement or something.

Thanks for clearing that up.
