    Use safeties to your advantage.

    In season 1, a skip simply preserved your streak without adding to it. Now, these safeties give you an automatic correct answer which DOES add to your streak. That being the case, once you get to 9 questions on your own, with three safeties saved, you are guaranteed to get to 12 by using said safeties.

    There are of course a multitude of other mathematical combinations for this - use a safety one question before earning another one to keep yourself going (in this example, you would have used 4 safeties to get to 12, only requiring 8 correct answers on your part), and so on.

    A little bit of math goes a long way, especially considering the (apparently) raised difficulty of this season's questions.

    SpeckObstThe math question are the easiest but hold on to your jokers one fucked up ones. I play the German version and we had a question yesterady with a false answer. The game was trying to tell me that 2.2+2.3+0.5=5.1. And they are also not that great at math rules. Example: 8+2*4=40??? You have to do 2*4 first before you add the 8. But yeah, I was late to the game and had those two wrong and broke my streak at 10 and 9 >.<

    MustangNoxI can confirm these 2.2+2.3+0.5=5.1 and 8+2*4=40 questions, at the first one I was like wtf? I choose 5,1 than immediatly skipped it, I skipped the other one as well, so I managed to get 37 streak.

    As Andaley said, those safeties are critical. Following on:

    - Try to get this at the start of an Extended Play Session. I find that the questions at the start of a game are easier than in the later regions of the 30 minutes.

    - Also recommend playing during a 'Figure Me Out' Game Session on a Wednesday, those Maths questions are ridiculously easy most of the time.
