The box says the game length is 10-30 minutes. This is a simplification and part of the issue is how many players there are, and if everyone needs to read all the cards. Once people are familiar with all the card abilities, they tend to play a lot faster.
My current general estimation is the following:
- 2 players: 5-10 minutes.
- 3 players: 10-20 minutes.
- 4 players: 15-30 minutes.
- 5 players: 20-40 minutes.
- 6 players: 30-60 minutes.
- 7 players: 40-100 minutes.
- 8 players: 50-120 minutes.
