we played a couple of test games and they seem to drag out  bit (we were playing with the base set)

it seemed like early on the dragons never really moved off the center (win one loss on deal)

even at the end games when one deck started to put its foot down it was hard to get and keep 2 dragons.

 

Is this how the gameis supposed to play?

 

aldo, the card intice holy dragon (might have name wrong) which lets you get a dragon on your side, can that take a dragon from another player? does using that to get the 3rd dragon end the game if you use up all your cards even in the middle of a fight?

It counts like a one dragon win. So if the enemy is in lead, you take on of his dragons and return it to the middle of the table. If it is a draw or you are in lead you get one dragon from the middle of the table.

Yes and no. You need a 4th dragon to end the game. And yes, if you get that one in the middle of a fight it is instantly over.

It's not uncommon for a game to end with someone going through their deck (in which case whoever has dragons wins).  However, even in this case, it shouldn't take all that long, as the decks aren't huge.  

 

The game ending with someone going through their deck is sort of the "standard end."  I think of winning by attracting a fourth dragon as the "mercy win," just sort of ending the game because it would be difficult to come back at that point.

good to know. I come from a CCG background, so getting through my whole deck scares me

Once you get into deck building with Blue Moon you won't see it happening that often either. At least in my experience.
