There are two game types: Journey, and Gauntlet.
Play the Journey mode at your own pace without time pressure.
The Gauntlet mode is a speed game where then Danger Bar fills up at a constant rate - when it hits the top, you get a Numbskull. Every time you make a match, the Danger Bar speeds up a tiny amount-- BUT, whenever you fill the board with all gold, it slows down a little. So, the key to doing well at Gauntlet is to have a low Snood Ratio.
