I know the page says 100 minutes, but for anyone who has played this what were your approximate play time and for how many nights?

I'm looking to get this to the table with my group but we usually only have about 90min to play. And if it plays longer I may have to plan accordingly. Also play time estimates on the box always seem off to me.

It is between what you have on the box up to 30 min longer (depending how lucky are you with dice/cards and of course how effective you are in the combat).

That sounds about right.

Id suggest playing a solo game or two to make sure you have everything down pack.
Helps lower down time for rule hunting.

That said, first game with me and the little brother, 2 nights, took a bit over an hour?

The GF, lil bro, and I did a 4 night and a 7 night game.
The 7 night lasted a few hours but was a blast.
The 4 night lasted about 1-1/2 hours.
We didnt make it all the way thru the 4th night though.
We discovered we were playing smarts wrong the first couple games.
Adding it all together instead of the highest.
Made it more in line with how difficult it should be.
Got gutted on night 4 about 4 rounds in.

One thing we did not do was change our starting base unless we pulled the card that says too.
I know youre supposed to do it every couple night.
I think this was as much for game play as it was table space.
We elected to keep the tiles in play and not start fresh.
I feel this cut down on the time in the longer night games.
As we werent packing all the tiles and bit back up and redealing tiles.
