Timing For Death on the Gambia

can you advise approx how long the Death on the Gambia game takes?

We have a 3 hour limit in the venue.....Thanks

My response:

Death on the Gambia takes about 2.5 hours to play through, so you have enough time.

However, you will need everyone to be prepared to play when they arrive, though. I find there's often a bit of time as people gather and read through their characters. So if you're time limited, I would send out characters in advance, and stress the importance of arriving on time.

You may also lose some of the wind-down time at the end, where people informally swap stories with each other. But there's no reason that can't happen somewhere else - in a cafe or somewhere else.

I hope that helps.
