    I'd change #2.

     

    "When should you enter the party? There’s no absolute correct answer here, but here are some tips to help you make your mind:"

     

    The best time to enter party mode is EXACTLY when it starts.  Since NO games are EVER against LIVE players, you can take advantage of this.  When the game FIRST starts, there is no way for the game to put you up against any PRESET scores (which is the ONLY way party mode works).  So for a BRIEF but sometimes longer amount of time (all depends on how soon other people start playing) you will have ZERO opponents, and regardless of how quickly you answer or your score, you will by default be in first place and get the 1000 bonus points.

    I do agree. Personally I do start sometimes at the second the party starts for the reason you mentioned, although this means you will probably face the strongest players and the contest will last 24 hours which can lead to a very high score for the first place. If you wait for 12 hours (or a couple of minutes before the halfway mark to be accurate) you'll have a chance to make it to a "friendlier" party. This is the only way I was able to win some of the harder badges like reggae, country and new age.

    I think if you start early and get a large break on the field you will discourage a lot of people from trying to catch you.  It will take a lot of tickets though to win.  In some ways its like an Ebay auction.  The early bids just tend to push up the final price so the seller (or the house) wins.  In SP the house wins because people have to spend a lot of tickets as a result.  Personally I've never had a problem blowing by the players in the early matches by at least tripling their score.  Usually I don't play to win the badge as the number of tickets required is out of reach.  I do try to make a profit on the tickets where I can, by winning as many as possible for the least outlay.  First thing to do when you finish the first match in a party is check the score of #1 on the leader board.  If its ridiculously high then forget that party and try another one with a lower score for the lead.
