So the timer that came with my game is broken. I am going to request a replacement, but can someone let me know how long the timer should be running for? That way, I can play while I wait for the replacement to come. Thanks!

From reviews I've seen... 2 minutes. I'd use your device though...but to each their own i guess.

The rule book explicitly calls it a 2 minute timer.
It's within a few seconds.

This, for just about every timed game. With it now being so easy to have a phone that can count down and give an audio alert rather than the old school sand timer, I almost always use a phone. Not that I don't appreciate publishers using sand timers, but it's so easy to miss when they run out.

My timer is 3 min 10 seconds, that's not even close to being accurate.

Turns out on one side it's 2 minutes 14, the other side it's 3 min 14, as if it's busted on one end. Just use your smartphone.
