How long do games last?
I am interested in The Last Gasp, Casino Fatale, and The Immortal Murders. My time cap for a murder mystery is about 3.5 hours. Would these ones fit within that time limit?
The short answer is, yes, you can run these games in 3.5 hours.
The longer answer is that the games themselves typically take 2-2.5 hours to play out, depending a bit on how experienced your players are (experienced players tend to be quicker) and how many players you have (if you have only a few players then the game will be quicker).
The rest of the time is taken up with introductions, reading character sheets and a debrief and wind down afterwards - and you can take as long (or as little) as you want over those.
You can speed up reading character sheets by sending them out a couple of days in advance.
I hope that helps.
