Since the land tiles are random for each game, it has infinite replayability. Knowing which tiles are still left in the "deck" is a bit like counting cards in blackjack - the skilled player will beat the luck of the draw every time. Therefore one-to-one games play quite differently than with 4 or 5 players.
The game is playable with 4 players on the same console on one TV in roughly 15 minutes and also with 5 players via Xbox Live. Next to the base game it also includes the "The River" expansion by default. It builds a river of 12 extra tiles before each game, dividing the land in halves.
