The way it works: You pick a category you want to compete in (from more than 250 options) and a challenger (it connects you with your Facebook friends), and the game finds out if the person you want to play against is online. Even if they’re not, you can still play against them, and find out your results later on. You can even opt to play against challengers who aren’t in your friend circle, to up your scores.
