I think the replayablity is pretty high. There are about 35 tiles of each of the three phases, A, B, C... you use about 1/2 of them each game randomly making the stacks. (just estimating I didn't check the actual counts).

The same goals for the goals... there are about 20-30 goals and each game you use 4 as public goals and each player gets 2 and chooses one as their private goal.

I absolutely love this game. I've played it several times and each game has been different from the last. I've played two player and four player games and it plays beautifully both ways. The component quality is fantastic as well.

The game is very replayable due to the large numbers of available tiles. The components are good -- with the caveat that you need to pay close attention when punching the tiles, and you may want to have a utility knife close by. This printing has had issues with the punch sheets not always being cut all the way through. I wrote a thread about this issue, but on my set, I found that certain tiles had about a 1/8" strip that wasn't totally cut through. If you are careful when punching, you should be able to identify those tiles and use a utility knife to make a clean cut out of the punch sheets.

Even with that issue, this is a fantastic game that I am sure you will enjoy.

Thanks for the help, It looks like a great game, I have been watching videos of it, Im just trying to get the feel for it.. I dont want to buy it and then only play it a couple times because no one has any interest in..

I watched several videos before playing it myself. Honestly, I found the explanations in the videos made the game seem way more complicated than it really is. The rule book is only a couple of pages long. Once you get the flow, the game moves along rather smoothly.

As others have mentioned, there's quite a bit of variety in the game as each playthrough requires that you randomly remove a certain amount of tiles and then dish out a few at a time. The possible combinations make the game highly replayable. This is honestly one of my current favorite games.

For me it was "meh". It'll be a great IOS app, but as a boardgame, too many combos and missed scoring because of too many tile combos occurring during scoring.
