I'm thinking about running Mid-East Peace at a convention, but I need to know a reasonable playing time. The BGG entry lists 120 minutes for playing time. That seems a little short for a diplomatic game. I would have guessed closer to 4 hours. What has been your experience? Fudge on the high side as I'll have to teach rules in the time period as well. I plan to limit the negotiation phase.

Hi Kent:

Played this a bunch long ago. IIRC playing time was highly variable with 2 hours a very rough average.

Playing time depends on:

- How many players there are,
- How much they get into diplomacy,
- Whether the game ends in war or peace (war = longer game).

My quickest game of this was a blow out victory (about 45 minutes). My longest game was also the last I ever played -- well over 4 hours (ugh!).

I'd suggest limiting diplomacy time as a way to keep playing time down without warping play.

Hope this helps.
