I was curious how much time the expansions add to the base game's length.

Also, how much setup time is added?


Poll: Play time of Jambo plus BOTH expansions.
Please answer both questions below regarding play time. Thank you.
How long does it take you to play...
  < 20 min 20 min 30 min 40 min 50 min 60 min 70 min > 70 min
Just the base game of Jambo?
Jambo plus BOTH expansions?

I've only played it once but

1) The setup time is however long it takes you to shuffle base game, exp 1, and exp2 together

2) The game ends at 60 coins. Give yourself an hour

Maybe 20 seconds extra setup time and the games take about same time (except first game or two since you have to learn new cards and stuff).

For us it's maybe 30 minutes per game with or without expansions. As mentioned above, the setup time is slightly longer with expansions but definitely worth it!

Actually with expansions the game often feels faster as it doesn't stall so easily as base game alone as there are more options (huts and carpets if you take them to game and ware cards with 2 wares).

The 2 expansions maybe add a couple of minutes to setup (distribute huts, magic carpet, relics, and shuffle a BIG deck of cards). But as stated by Sassin, I feel the game is faster because it "doesn't stall" as easily as the base game. I will ALWAYS play with EVERYTHING from both expansions. Just makes for a better game.
