How long do your games last?
« on: August 20, 2020, 12:35:06 am »

New to Dominion! Have really, really been enjoying games with friends over the past few weeks.

My simple question is: how long do everyone's IRL games usually last?

3-4 player games have been great fun, but sometimes last 75+ minutes. Side of the box reads approx. 30 minute games.

Are probably often terrible strategies from new players causing games to last much longer than they usually would? Or is the 30 minutes only really applicable to 2-player games?

Thanks a bunch!

Just played a two player and a three player IRL game tonight. Two player game was only about 20 minutes, three player game was over an hour. Mostly it comes down to what cards are in play. The three player game was slowed down a lot due to the easy availability of lots of cards that allowed a lot of actions per turn to be played, as well as the presence of Fairgrounds which caused players to not buy Provinces when they normally would.

Yeah, some games simply move more slowly than others. I play 2 and 3 player games IRL and they take probably 60 minutes, but we're often chatting at the same time and none of us are particularly great at the game.

It entirely depends on what cards are out. I've had even just two player games go from anywhere between 15 min to 1.5 hrs
