Additional considerations can also be made as well.
This is not a game that requires any mechanics to extend it. The beginning goes quickly, the middle gets sluggish, and the end is an amorphous solid.

Absent win conditions, each player gets to define his own goals. If I were playing, a quick end would have been my goal. Seeing this was not likely, I determined that playing would be frustrating.
