What are lifelines and how do I use them?
Lifelines are strategic elements that can be earned or purchased from the Store. Depending on the board game you are playing, a lifeline can be a hint, an extra dice roll, or a roll over. You get one Lifeline per game to help get you out of sticky situations. Make sure you use it because the free lifeline per game does not carry over to your other games. Visit the Store if you need more. Lifelines purchased from the Store never expire and can be used more than once per game!
