Amazing.  I had a group of people aged 8 to well over 60 and the only reason
the game ended was that the feast servers scraped the pieces off the table
and put the board away while the dice were still being rolled.  7 players at
the highest, but the minimum during the 3+ hour game run was 4.

The In and Inn game was the only other one that went that long, and we just
picked up the dice and pot and moved to a corner on the floor.  :)
