This game claims it lasts 120 minutes. But a lot of comments say "LOOOONG Playing time"

Does this game usually take much longer than 2 hours? Does it play well with 2 players? And how long does a game usally last? Thanks again geeks.

Playing time
In my experience it takes around 2 hours per age with 4 or 5 players. So we normally play a two age game which is more than enough for us.

Don't know how well it playes with 2, I'd try to get at least 3 players though.

Btw, I should say at least 2 hours per age, sometimes it takes way longer depending on number of conflicts and such. That combat system is so bad that it brings tears to my eyes. cry

The combat system isn't that bad. It is a bid fiddly, but it can make for some interesting decisions in large battles. The problem is that big combats can really slow the game down. But many battles can be resolved even without drawing a card, when one side clearly outclasses another.

2 players
It plays rather well with two players, and is a much different game as it increases the time (or rather turns) it takes to develop your empires.

I found it to be a very good 2 player game, but prefer to play with 5.
