View Full Version : How long to allow for BBDBA ?????

Can any of the BBDBA regulars give me a clue on how long you expect a 'typical' BBDBA to last for ???
May be doing a few games next weekend, and could do with a time plan for the day.........

Running a BBDBA tournament, 2/3 of the games finish up in two hours or 2:15; with 2.5 hour timeslots (what we use if we can) there are less than 10% unfinished games (every Game Director's Objective).
It can vary widely according to what armies are used, of course. Friendly games are sometimes much faster (less microthinking) but also can be significantly longer (more talking, less focus).

OK..... It had been suggested that 1 1/2 hr would be enough, but I seem to remember that the two or three BBDBA I've played, over a year ago, with lots of refering to the rules, took about 2:15-2:30.
Needed a bit of expert advice, so many thanks !!

That would be ... incorrect.
