What's the actual playing time on this, for the short game and the campaign game? Could I cram it into an evening after dinner?

I have seen a wide variance in times it takes to play...but certainly, if you haven't played it before, you'll need more than an evening...

I've heard 4 hours for the short game, with experienced players -- does that sound right?

I hesitate to say - it is a highly analytical game and you can take a lot more than that...so it depends on the players...

4 hours I can do...but you can't go by that...and I have played dozens of games and know the game cold...

More than an evening for a while...but you can get a good chunk done in 4 hours and I think still have a great time playing out the Japanese high tide.

It really depends upon how much deep thought is going to be allowed,sort of like chess to some extent. If you have an extremely slow player, you may need a chess clock timer....
