My post, WOTC Discovers Typical D&D Players Like Short Combats, a few days ago generated a lot of discussion both here and on Google+. I thought it might be interesting to see how long readers think the average combat in a D&D session should last. Note that I’m talking an average combat encounter in a dungeon room or wilderness area. I’m not asking how long a so-called “boss encounter” (a major combat with big villain the at the end of a series of adventures) should last. If you use minis and grids, please include the minis and grids setup time in the length you select. Make your opinion known by voting in the following poll. Please comment on why you believe the length you selected is optimal if you are so moved.
