There are six difficulties, known as job rosters. Each difficulty has 11 jobs, then unlocking a twelfth. Most jobs are based on picking up and delivering loads via freight and passenger cars. Other jobs involve moving numbered freight cars to make valid addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division equations at kindergarten through fifth grade difficulty levels. There are memory-matching, pick-up sticks, hangman, Tower of Hanoi, and anagram scramble jobs with set time limits. The game has seven different play environments including a desert, the arctic, a living room, and the moon.[citation needed]
