Hello,

I know the playtime for this game is listed at 120 minutes, but I was wondering about how long typical 3 player games take? Assume that everyone has played the game before.


Thanks.

Number of players doesn't really affect game time as much as cube distribution. In a game where a lot of cities have neighboring cities with similar cube colors, the game can drag while the players take the time to turn a 1 point delivery into a 5+ point delivery. When the cubes aren't as close to the delivery cities, they tend to be taken for 3 and 4 point deliveries quickly and that shortens the game considerably if cities are being emptied.
