Games I play seem to take forever..like 6 hours..it's rediculous..and by the time it's over I just want it to be done..
What about you guys?
It depends on the players. If two competent players who know the rules correctly and their own armies go against each other I have played 2K FB games that only lasted an hour and a half. The size of the armies play a small factor as well, it takes longer to move a goblin horde than it does an all Ogre army. On average though, I find it takes me about 2 hours to play a 2K game. Which is a nice even amount of time.
If the game drags on for you, you might want to ask yourself why does the game drag on? What is taking up so much time that you take 6 hours to finish a game.
Most important rule when facing any army with the Imperials is that you have to play like you have nothing to lose. Go big, or go home. Play like you have a pair. You cannot fight the enemy with subtlety or else you will get demolished.
Wow, are both sides using 2,000 pts worth of Gnoblars with no weapons and gum disease?
Even with the sorts of people who change their mind three times everytime they march a regiment you should be able to bang that out in 3 hours. Are you guys new and still learning the rules?
And now, I will have to find a place on one of my Exorcists to include stjohn 70's quote (included on the original post, in case it doesn't show up here! It's definitely a keeper!)
I usually play 2250 games and with a vet player I can easily knock that out in an hour and a half. If im gonna play someone I usually allow for 2 hours if it gets too long I cant take it. A lot has to do with armies as well and the tactics that people are using all shooting from the other side of the bored can make games drag on but two fast armies can make a game go by in a second.
I've noticed as a general "rule of thumb" that most GW games tend to revolve their games around 1 hour per 1000 pts.Of course it depends on who's playing and what armies.

WINDMILLS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!
I am doing lots of practice games for an upcoming GT heat which are 2000 point games. The rules there are 2 hours per game so I am trying to keep the time to that.
How big a table are you playing on if it is taking you 6 hours? I would have lost the will to live if a game took that long.
Helper monkey, bring me beer and donuts
A good idea would be to read up on all the armies you will be facing as well.I am doing lots of practice games for an upcoming GT heat which are 2000 point games. The rules there are 2 hours per game so I am trying to keep the time to that.
Its amazing how much time is taken up when your opponent doesn't know the rules for that steam tank or that warp lightning cannon or some such thing.*chuckles* had a visual of some poor sod screaming across a 10 foot table at his opponent because his stupid chaos warriors couldn't move fast enough....How big a table are you playing on if it is taking you 6 hours?
For me, it generally takes between 1 and 2 hours to complete a 2000 point game where both my opponent and i are familiar with the rules that go with both our armies.
You will still need to explain that obscure magic item now and then but it still shouldn't take you 6 hours to play....
Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes. After that, who cares, your a mile away and you have his shoes!!

Games online seem to take a lot longer than in real life. Maybe because you have to type everything you would usually say. I had a 1500 pt game last night which lasted well over 3 hours.
In real life though I'd say it usually takes around 2-3 hours for a 2000-2250 point game
Yep, 2.5 hours on average. Six is very extreme unless your constantly checking rules or stalling.

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
