TBH The Isles doesn't take that long to submit a turn - It takes a while to read the turn results but they're written in a story-like way so similar to reading a chapter of a book. And because the game is very rules-lite you don't have to refer to a rulebook to say 'Go to the Inn and speak to the Innkeeper about x' or 'Go the Market, buy a pair of good boots, and set light to a bale of wool to see if the Guards at the Tower leave their post to help'  - Some people spend hours on their turn, but a number spend about 10 minutes
OK, you got me! Smile where do I sign up?
