A friend picked this up recently at the local scifi convention.

More of a collector's item than a game really, but I'm not going to hold too much against it.

But 30 minute playtime? Well you might get 30 minutes each time you pull it out, but that's 2+ plays easily.

One last tour here on the Death Star and I can retire. What was that noise?!

I had this game a million years ago when it first came out and at the time I and my brother and friends who I played with were middle school kids and younger. With short attention spans and more going on in the room than just the game a play could fill 30 minutes without any problems.

Certainly, now that I am older and my ability to focus has improved the very light game will go very quickly, but for the intended audience at the time the game was produced 30 minutes is a reasonable number.

I must agree with you, that now it would be more for my collection than to ever hit the table, but way back when, it was great fun.

I recently found a copy at a thrift store, then had to figure out how to play it with no rules and some of the pieces missing. Gotta say, it has an interesting use for a spinner, but...

Yeah, it's a lot like those old games where you roll dice and run around the board. Sure there's a few fun wrinkles, but it doesn't have a lot of depth. Playing it once a year or so would be a fun diversion, but no more than that.
