What is with suggested play times?!?!

Okay, so last night we played Thurn and Taxis. Box says 60 minutes, we take 2.5 hours. This seems to happen all the time. I think part of it is the wine that flows while the cards get played. I dunno. But even Stone Age, a game that should take 45 minutes (supposedly), takes us at least two hours. Maybe it's just my game group...


  1. I would think publishers post duration times based on their playtests with experienced players . . . which isn't very reflective for those of us playing the game the first few times.
    Having said that, I don't think Thurn and Taxis should take two hours. Hope it was a good game!
