Is there any variant in the rulebook or something for making the game a bit shorter? For a 4-player game, 2 hours may be too long for me. If there is any trick to make it shorter (maybe starting with a boosted deck?) would be nice

Simple solution would probably be not to defeat all 3 of the royalty cards. For a short game try doing just the Jack and Queen, or just the Jack on its own.

I would guess the Jack takes the longest, as you need to build up your deck, so just doing the Jack may be about half the regular playtime?

Yep, Jack takes up half of the time. Speed for Queen and King ramps up as player's deck become fine-tuned. The final rulebook will have a section recommending first-timers to play only up to Jack to get a good feel for the game before jumping into a full game.
