No, it's not a dirty joke. I'd actually like to know how long this game typically takes for 2 players once they get the hang of it all.

My wife often selects against things with long play times (okay, that one might be a dirty joke).

Thanks.

In all honesty, this is a game you don't want to play with less than 4 players. That's what makes the tightness special.

This is a game which works so well with 3 or 4 players, that I would be looking for alternatives for 2. By the time you advance to 3 & 4 players, you start to get resource shortage, side effects of other players actions do affect your turn more and make it a true euro game in that sense. I love this game so much that I wouldn't expect the same level of challenge or attempt to ruin the experience with only 2.

Yeah, this game plays perfectly with 4 but if you insist to play it with 2, one game will take approximately 45-60 minutes to complete

Me and my wife prefer to play it with just 2, because you get to make a lot more interesting decisions (especially placing the event card every other turn). With four you wait too long for the 1st player marker and three turns in a row doing nothing except of playing/discarding 1 card feels quite dull to us.

Downtime? I've not really experienced much of that in this game. Even with teaching new players, this game rarely goes beyond 1hr 45 min. The card actions are pretty basic. There is an event and an action to do every round even when you aren't the first player, so I'm not sure what you're talking about.
