So the game takes 135 minutes? Not two hours, or 120 minutes, but 135. No less, no more.

As beautiful as it is unlikely.

If you're getting a finish around the "Spaceport Victory" space on the Initiative Track, 90 minutes is very doable, even for "slowpokes" . Especially Scenario 1, which is a fixed setup, the early game tends to follow a pattern for the initial turns, so they just whizz by.

The "official" time is 90-180 minutes, but you can only have one number on BGG, and not a range, so the average was chosen.

Me and my oponent play most games under 120 min, including setup. The longest part for us (scénario 6) is initial unit placement, then we watch our plans unveil.

Somehow everyone so far seems to have missed the point. Its not that I do not believe that the game might play in 120 min or whatever time you state. Its the number "135" that I find ridiculous. Why not make that "120", "130", "140" any other round number? Why the 5 minutes at the end?

135 isn't as odd a number as it may seem on the surface It's 2 hours 15 minutes, and quarter-hour increments aren't really that unusual
