Hello this game is on my radar but something off putting is the play time. Does it really take 90 minutes? I hope it flies by if thats the case because i think id rather wits & wagers. Any experience of play time folks? shorter? longer? miss out the last round?

I have only played the base game, but that takes around 30-45 minutes.

Round 1 can take a long time if players are not familiar with the titles. maybe 30 minutes for round 1.

Round 2 and Round 3 are really fast. About 15 minutes each.

But you'll be laughing the whole time, so it's worth the 60-90 minutes. Easily.

NOTE: We find Title Recall easier (and therefore faster) than the basic game.

I've play many games of Time's Up (all versions), and I couldn't tell you how long it takes. We're always having so much fun, we're not paying attention to the time.

I only started timing games about 3 years ago, but my three logged plays with times (of Celebrities, from whence this game came) are 77, 88, and 74 minutes from start of the first round to end.

My one play of Title Recall (untimed) at a convention was pretty painfully long. I'd say 90 minutes is closer than 60 for that particular variety, simply because so many titles are unfamiliar to others.
