My 13 year old son and I have played this after first introducing him to Star Fleet Battles. We had a great time, had 5 ships vs 6, and were done in about 4 hours including looking up a lof of rules for our first play. I feel the time will cut in half moving forward.
The rules are elegant, if a little confusing until you play it through for a couple of rounds. The ability to play multiple ships is really fun, and the movement turned out to make the game a lot more fun by adding strategy and uncertainty.
