Played 3 games this year.
- First game was an 8-player one on a preset map. 7 newbs and 1 that already played three or four times. Lasted 8 hours! Everybody had read the rules prior to this game and we have lots of printed helps like teck trees, FAQ, etc. Was epic and awesomely fun!
- Second game was with 5 players on a preset map. 1 newb and 4 that already played once in the 8-player game. Lasted 5 hours. We were supposed to be 6 but one bailed out 30 minutes before the game. Was still a blast but i'm sure it would have been a lot better with 6. But we don't havethe will to say no to TI3.
- Third game with 5 players, same group as the other 5-player game and on a preset map again. Lasted 4.5 hours. Same good ol fun.
Hope to try this one with 6 players. I think it's the sweet spot of player count for the interaction, strategy cards rotation and overall length.
One of the best game in this genre.
