How can we improve Scattergories?

Scoring

I don't understand why when it's a tie I always loose? Like just in a recent game I had - I gained a score of 40 and my opponent gained the same score and yet I lost. And it's like this every single time it's a tie. Explain please? Thank you

    A tie always goes to the player who submitted his or her set of responses in the least amount of time. If you and I play a match together and tie, but it took you only 30 seconds to submit all of your answers and took me 35, you’ll be awarded the win.

    Hope that clears things up! We’ve included a notification screen in the game to help communicate this to players.

        Hey there! This is a common question, and we've added a notification screen in-game to explain: a tie goes to the person who answered fastest. Therefore, if you and I are playing and we both scored 60 points but it took you 40 seconds to answer and took me 45, you will be awarded the win because you were faster. Thanks!
