Second play for Oceania - much like the first. You can place tiles in such a way as to increase or decrease the chance that future tiles will fit, but what does it avail you if you have no control over what tiles you will be picking. Well, two things: 1) tiles surrounded on all sides by other tiles get filled in automatically, and 2) tiles you failed to place earlier can be placed instead of a random tile by sacrificing a scout. This helps, somewhat.
I am happy to play several more times - a wait and see to discover if my interest continues to wane, or if it will always remain an interesting little filler.
