Thanks!

Word is about an hour per player, plus a little longer if anyone is learning the game.

We had our first play last night with 3 players, with rules explanation it was about 3 hours.

i feel its generally slightly less than an hour per player.

the rules arent overly difficult so once you get going it plays quite fast.

Also don't forget the play rules on page 26 for accelerated gameplay. I think any group who has played the game once can implement the first rule of "simultaneous first turns" without any issue.

Easier Ascension also has decent merit (i.e.: 4 culture = 1 ascension, instead of 5 culture).

Those alone probably will drop the game's time by maybe 20-30 minutes, making a 3 player game finishable in 2.5 hours.

However this comes PURELY from a theoretic standpoint. I just ordered the game yesterday and am annoyed how long I'm going to have to WAIT FOR IT TO ARRIVEEE!! KLINGON RAGE!!! KLLLLIIIIGGGOOONNN RRRAAAAAAGGGEEEE!!!
