So how long does this game last realistically. I'm looking for it as a possible alternative to Twilight Struggle because my wife loves it but we have yet to finish a game. Just was wondering if this was equally as long.

Compared to Twilight Struggle, this game is a quicky! Roughly an hour to two to play; generally closer to the one hour.

That is great news. That makes it pretty much a must-have for me.

That does sound awesome. I'm definitely going to look more into this one. Thanks for such a quick response. This community is THE best online community I've ever been a part of.

First game two hours , second game an hour but no sieges . I reckon 60-90 minutes is spot on.

I really think I must be playing this wrong. My first game was nearly 4 and my second nearly 3. Frankly it's hard to see it ever getting as short as 60-90 minutes and I don't think we're THAT slow.

Play such that your deck is never above 12 cards. It'll speed right up!
