Gary used to run it in a single session and was still running it as late asbut he used the original version, which was likely shorter than the published version – possibly including only the core encounters and not any of the red-herrings, which would definitely make it quicker, but would also lose some of the charm a lot of the red-herring rooms are really fun!

On the one hand it allowed the adventure to be published in its full “funhouse” glory instead of attempting to water it down to conform to then-contemporary tastes, but on the other it caused them to exaggerate the old-fashionedness and “wackiness” in a way that feels like they were making excuses, that kinv were trying to create an ironic distance from the material as a defense against criticism.
