Was George Orwell an Optimist?

I have two doubts:
How much time costs play a "Abaddon" game? Real time, not the indicated in the box...
It says 45 minutes on the game page here, and I think that's a good estimate once you have the rules down. Your first game or two may run longer. Also, it will vary a bit from mission to mission depending on number units and number of turns.
Also, how do you play a game with 3/4 players? 2 vs. 2, all vs. all?
The mission briefings for the individual scenarios all tell you how many players they are recommended for. Two-player missions have very few units, three-player missions assign three factions during setup, etc.
