Welcome to Librarium Online!
I started playing Apocalypse a few months ago and never finished a game so far!
I am curious on how much time you take to play a game.
2000 points (Usually takes me 3 hours)
10000 points (In 5 hours we managed to get to turn 3)
Any tips and tricks are welcome
Usually I play 1,500-1,750pts games, I'm not a fan of larger points. I play on a Monday evening, start about 19.30, usually wrapped up for about 22.00.
It takes how long it takes, right? I find that the play times will go down the more you know your own rules, the main rules and opponent's rules.
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

As Zemaphore said people knowing the rules and the army well helps, for me it is generally about 45-60 minutes per 1000 points so 2000 point game around 1.5-2.0 hours. Apocolypse is a bit harder, did a 6k per side in about 6 hours but a 5k per side was done in about 3 hours.
I agree with nakaruru. per thousand points takes about 45-60 minutes it all depends on the turn (toward the end of the games there may not be many models left), how many models in the army, and how well everyone knows the rules. Sadly the time frame is a blessing for me as I normally play at my friends house because he has more room to play but with 60 inch TV everyone but me gets distracted so turns can last 80-90 minutes and sometimes setting up can take 45 minutes!!!!
Repainting Orks not sure how many points yet
Warriors of Chaos shelved until further notice
I had played a 10,000 apocalypse battle with 20 people and it lasted more than six hours. the next day i couldn't stand up my legs were so soar.
I usually play 1500 pts and it usually takes 1.5 hours.

I can play 2K in 2 hours, which includes deciding terrain, rolling for sides, deploying my army, and actually getting to the nitty-gritty. However, casual games usually take a lot longer. We usually get sidetracked talking and joking, or making food/drink runs. We also use friendly games as our time to make sure we're absolutely sharp on everything, so we look up any rule that we're not 100% sure of.
I can usually get a 1000-1500 point game wrapped up in a couple of hours if it's a one on one. All depends on how well everyone knows the rules.
If you factor in additional players then silly rules debates pop up and can make the game a whole lot longer.
