I guess I missed the time it takes to play this game when I bought it.....does it really take 5 to 10 hours to play?

What makes the game so long?

Are there anyways to shorten it?

Yes, easy. Plan a 3 turn scenario and set each player a time limit on their turn. In a 3 turn (5 player) game there will be about 65-70 chits pulled. Divide you desired time between that.
