Recently my Warhammering group started playing 2500 point games. Everyone seems to be hurrying more now as it's taking longer to finish a game.

How many hours does it take you all to play your games. I'm most interested in 2500 point games.

When I say how long I mean the time you show up til the time you leave. Setting up, packing up and rolling spells, terrain, all that stuff.

I would think about 2-3 hours

Depends if you have done your army lists before, agreed on missions, have tables, want to eat a bit before gaming, chat a bit, etc.

From my experience, I think it would take about 4-6 hours.;) But that's just me, old and slow sigur. Seriously, I think you can do it in about three hours.

Hmm, I do 2k in about a hour and a half. 2.5k would be a little longer, but not really more than 2 hours still. Haven't played so many of them, but thats about it.

In my experience, it takes 2-3 hours. We hold tourneys at 2500, so we finish then in 2 hours, but we play a good bit and pretty fast.

during tournaments (2250) we had to play a game in 3 hours, most of the time my opponent and i were finished during that time. friendly games usually take longer due to trash talking, rules disputes, lunch, broken models, threats, etc.

Depends on the opponent. I can finish a game that size in 2 hrs with some opponents, others take 3+ hours for a 1000 point game.

I'm really a fan of bigger games. If both players are fairly decisive and know the rules and their armies, and have their figures organized for quick set-up, 2500 or 3000 point games can be played at only a little longer than a 2000 point game.

The variables are thus:

1. How well do you both know the main rules?
2. How well do you both know your own armies' rules?
3. How much shooting is there?
4. Do you have movement trays? This is a big one if your army's skin is green or furry.

Usually it would take around 3 hours, this included as period of time discussing with your opponent if a unit can charge or not and such.

4 hours with a pizza break.

I get to my local shop around 6pm. I get home around 4am.

This isn't always playing, but we usually get our opponents picked out (we have about 20 people that show up, sometimes) and everything set up, till the tables get put away, call it anywhere from 2-4 hours. Then we BS and eat.

From arrival until they leave?? 3 1/2 to 4 (1/2) hours. That's with a magic phase. More like between 3 to 3 3/4 without a magic phase.

We do have BS time before and while sitting up. It's seems we spend about 10 minutes(plus) looking whatever up during games.

About 3 hours from start of deployment to the end of the 6th turn, on average for us (not including any breaks or anything). We play 2500 pts battles pretty much all the time, I think they are a lot more entertaining as 2000 pts battles, at it enables you to get more 'flesh' (basic troops) into your army list.
