From: Charleston, SC. USA
Zeta16 and I were able to get through an entire game, which ended in October 1945, in about 8 months. I have found that if you move along rather quickly, you rember much more about your forces from turn to turn and don't have to do the long "look at every unit" stuff each turn. As Japan, I did a typical one hour turn once about every ten turns, and a big logistics turn every 30 game days. The rest of my daily turns only took about 15 - 20 minutes. Sometimes I wanted to slow the train down a bit, but the rewarding feeling of having a good flow to a game without having pages of notes to review, and actually completing a game and using those units, planes, and ships, was terrific!
