There are 2 modes for each topic. One is infinite time but you have to know or guess all the words, and the other has time limit but you don’t need to know all the words (because most likely you’ll run out of time before you get through it all), but this one holds back some of the critical elements until you complete a few obvious words first.....
When you are familiar with the topic, the game session can be easy, but unfamiliar ones are very challenging to near impossible. I try not to use the hints when I really should know the answers, and I get mad at myself if I use the hint and it shows me something I already know.
I like that by repeating the same topic, I learn some new related words I didn’t know before and improve my score, and when curious, I look them up to find out more about them. At first I couldn’t get through Egyptian Mythology at all, but I’m finally able to finish after playing the topic off and on for about a week.
