I nearly always play with a total of 3 players (including myself). How is this game as a 3-player game?

Also, do you find the 20-25 minutes per player listed on the box to be accurate?

It plays fine as a three-player game.

As with most games, the time estimate is accurate when playing with experienced players. With first-time players I would expect it to be at least 30 minutes per player.

It's probably best with three players. The four player game is quite brutal and tight game.

We've played seven 3-player games so far and really enjoy it. Time for the last two games was a little over an hour each. Closer to two hours for the first couple of games while we were still getting used to the rules.
