Anyone on the forums have experience with Seventh Continent?

It's going through a second round of KS funding (first big expansion) and I was thinking of buying in but wanted to get some 1st person accounts if possible.

False alarm, turns out the level I pledged at gets me the box as a stretch goal anyway.

I played it at a recent gaming weekend. We played for like 8 hours and we didn't finish the scenario. Nobody had played before, so we were learning as we went a bit, but we are all experienced gamers, so we got it in hand fairly quickly. I don't know what the expected length of a scenario is supposed to be, but one of the players said they thought it was intended to be played over multiple sessions. I enjoyed it while I played it, but it went on way too long for me. The way the scenario played out, I thought we were getting close to the end about 6 hours or so in, so I pushed to keep going, but then there was essentially a whole other area that opened up, and I had to throw in the towel. Mechanically, I think it works, but you probably need a solid group that can commit to playing multiple sessions per scenario and is willing to keep that going.

That sounds insane?! Thanks for the report!
