What variant is recommended for a not overly long winning time?

So, just to clarify, what I'm asking over here is not what variant is easier or such, but which one, in a winning run, offers a smaller amount of time.

For instance, Angband with it's 100 levels takes about 30 or so hours, I reckon. Even though I like the gameplay it offers a lot, I always get a bit tired when I'm about DLVL 30 or so, and end up losing interest in the run.

So, something that would offer a winning run of 10 hours max would be great for me. Is there any (preferably more than one ) variant that offers this kind of experience?

Thanks for the recommendations! Do you know if any of them offers some kind of dungeon branches?

Neither. Adding extra dungeons is for variants which are longer than V, not variants which are shorter.

It may not be kosher to say so but I think the game you want might be DCSS

Yup, especially since even a durdly player like me only needs 8 hours to beat DCSS (about the same amount of time I take to beat Quickband, lol)

Heckz, even V doesn't take all that long.

Poscheng and its predecessors are generally longish games, but picking Berserker makes them much, much shorter. Android Berserker is especially cute in this regard.

I know you didn't ask for something easier, but in line with what debo was saying, if you play an Android Berserker on Munchkin mode in one of the Hengband variants, a 4-hour victory can be quite satisfying :-)

Yeah, it's possible to win V in well under 24 hours. (I've never timed it, so I can't be more precise.)
