Default Question of Epic Newb-ness

I've recently picked up Munchkin and expansions 2 - 5 and all three boosters (Monster Buffs, Marked for Death and Reloaded). How long should a game of EPIC MUNCHKIN take, roughly?

That depends on several factors:
  • How many players there are
  • How familiar with the game everyone is (less familiarity takes longer since people need more time to read the cards, debate what they mean, etc.)
  • How fast your players are in general at taking their turn and deciding what to do

It's been my experience that a game of Epic Munchkin with 3 players takes about as long as a game of non-Epic Munchkin with 5. And your results may vary. But I'd give yourself at least 3 hours, with wiggle room for 4. :)

With 4 new players... 2 to 3 hours.
With 2 experienced and 2 newbies 2 hours
With 1 experienced and 3 newbies 1 hour.

YMMV
