If you feel you’ve discovered the solution but need some input, ask your group mates for their thoughts. Otherwise, you will failure upon your group, while engaging with one another can make you all so much smarter than before.

These are some of the most important ways to boost your chances of a victory.

Don’t shy away from asking for hints.

For some people, this request for help is synonymous with defeat. But defeat is only when time has actually run out. So, throw that your pride away and ask for that hint if it will help you reach the goal.
