You rocked the first few trivia questions and you’re feeling pretty smug, now are you ready to take it to the next level? The A game has 2 multiplayer modes that not only add a whole new dimension of excitement to the game, but allow you to earn double or triple points towards the weekly contest!

The first multiplayer mode of the A game is called Random Challenger (RC). Just like it sounds, the A game will match you up against another user that the system picks at random to really test your skills! To start, click on the Random Challenger button at the bottom right of the screen.

This tells you how far into the round you and your opponent are, your respective answer speeds, and how many questions each player has answered correctly.
