(Hey Poptropicans! This is a guest post written by TallMelonisCool, a Poptropica player in the community. In this post he’ll be sharing some tips for the game of Pathwise. Enjoy! –🐠)
My favorite common room game on Poptropica is Pathwise. It’s the one I’m best at, and I have some tips to share, so I thought I’d make a guest post about it. Here we go!
Tip #1: Start in the middle of the playfield.
People say that starting on your end in Pathwise makes it easier to get across to the other end.
But actually, starting right in the middle makes it easier to block the other person if they start at their end of the playfield, giving you an advantage.
Tip #2: Leave gaps in between each move.
Move in a way where you place a tile in the middle, then place your next tile not next to your first tile, but leave gaps, like you see in the picture.
Once you get all your tiles placed like this from one end to another, it is much harder for the other player to block you. Even if they block one of the two spaces that you left in the gap, there is still more space for you to form your path!
Looking at the board above, at this point, it’s like I’ve already won!
Tip #3: When trying to block the other player, do not place your tile too close to other player’s path. Instead, build a wall.
A mistake that players make is that, when they try to block their opponent, they mostly place their tile right next to the opponent’s path. Most of the time, if the opponent is smart, they will move around that and avoid the block. But it is a lot better if you place your tile as far away as you can because you can start making a wall to block your opponent.
Now get out there and win lots of Pathwise battles! 😀
