Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

Yes, I've finished games in 30 minutes before due to coincidental card draws. won't ever go over 2 hours unless you make it do so from AP etc.

Big? It's kinda normal sized big box game. As much table spaces as TTR or similar. Box is about a 1/3 longer but 1/4 narrower.

Very rarely will a game go over 1 1/2 hours. The game will be shorter with 2 players than with 4. But by how much, depends on the players.

For the physical size, I suggest browsing the image library for a good idea of how much space the game takes up on an average DR table (I'm also including a picture of mine, below). If space is really tight, I also suggest keeping the cubes in sauce cups (the plastic kind made by Dimond, found in just about any grocery store and Walmart). The lids for the cups also make storage and setup a snap.

Here's a picture I took last year of a game setup on a dining room table covered with black fabric. Note the sauce cups. Also, both of us sat on the same side of the table, which actually required more space, due to the way we had to slant our card holders. If the two players were to sit on opposite sides of the table, the card holders would not need to be slanted, which would save room.

Box size in inches: 13 3/4 long, 9 7/8 wide, 2 3/4 high.

I'd say 2 hours max. Can be played in less than that.
