I nearly always play games with a total of 3 players (myself included). How is this game as a 3-player game? Does the trading suffer with less than the full complement of players?

Also, do you find the listed play time of 90 minutes to be accurate for 3 players?

I found the listed play time to be pretty accurate. It oddly doesn't seem to vary a lot with the number of players, I think because you usually end up going through the deck.

I also find it works great as a 3-player game. There is less trading, but that's not really a crucial part of the game.

I play this frequently with 3. I find it works well, and the time limit is still a good estimate.
