**NEW** The tables now include play counts, average length in minutes and an average number of time triggers per playing. These stats are based on plays entered by all users.

* The Min/Max Time columns are to provide some sense of the length of the scenario relavtive to other scenarios. Of course, multiple Time Events may occur in quick succession, or may be spaced far appart. This does not consider possible Surrender/Attrition game end conditions, which could potentially occur prior to the Min Time Event number.
