I've now played 8 games with the same person and while we're really still learning... I feel like our games are taking way too long (45-60 minutes per game). How long are games taking for you guys?

Sometimes they are as short as 5 or 10 minutes. But most of the time they are probably 30-60 minutes. It depends a lot on the style of "deck" you play and how aggressive you are.

Twenty to thirty minutes for me, with the occasional five to ten minute game if things go really well for one and really poorly for the other.

Playing with my sons (about 30ish games so far) - depending on how aggressive I am, or how defensively they're playing I can either crush them in 10-15 minutes, or we can spend an hour to get to the end-game.

Now when we sit down to play they ask me if I'm going to be aggressive, or take it easy on them. That then changes their style of play for length of time I can expect a single game to take.

Games take about 15-20 minutes.

Maybe you guys are both playing slow decks? There are so many strong, cheap cards/dice in this game.

I found the urge to play with high cost characters is strong, simply for the cool factor, but that slowed things down as I struggled to get that much energy on the table. Once I started making sure I had a few low cost characters in the mix things went faster. Also, buying not so useful actions just for those "2"s helped.

If you are playing with Super Rares, specifically Black Widow Tsarina, a game takes about 12 minutes. My buddy and I played 6 games back to back both playing with Tsarina. The games took no more than 12 minutes each with the player going first winning every time.

If neither player is playing with Tsarina, which I would now strongly suggest for casual play, then the game can vary from 15-60 minutes depending on the decks.

5 to 45 min is my experience. It really depends on how defensive the players are being. If everyone attacks as often as possible, the game tends to be much quicker & very "swingy".

The game lends it self to being very customizable. If you want a shorter game knock off 5 points from your starting life. Or use less characters.

Or you can set a game timer & whoever deals the most damage in that time wins.

Another way to make for a quicker game; put ok'd dice in the used zone instead. This can dramatically change strategies tho.
