I'm looking at getting this game but the long play times worry me. Can one just play less rounds? How long does an average 2p session last?

I haven't played 2p, but the designer suggests playing only 4 decades with 2p. The game really shines with 4p tho.

Considering we mainly play with two that's not relevant. I don't know how long a decade takes either

Screw the playing time. It's a brilliant game. If it goes a little long, it's still worth it.

I'm not sure I've played enough to give a "typical" session length... and I've only played four and five player counts, so my typical length won't mean anything relative to a two player game. It takes a while at four, but I'd imagine that a two player game is much much quicker. The game box says 120 I think? I'd guess that once you know the game you should be able to play faster than that with only two.

1P game is around 1 hour. i've only played 2P game once and it's below 2 hours, including setup. i think 90 minutes is possible if we played faster

Most of my 2p games go about 2 hours. Longer when you are first learning the game.
