Please note, that's not a guarantee.
Start out small
When you start up the game, you'll be thrown into an arena with several other players. How close they are to you - and how much time they've already had to start claiming territory - seems to largely be up to chance. When you first arrive, then, start out by coloring in small pieces of the world until you get a feel for things, and figure out where your opponents are.
Watch and wait
When it comes to the other players, it's best to avoid them until you have some territory claimed. Crossing another player's unfinished line will cause you to die, and while it might also take them out, that won't help you win any more ground. As your area grows larger you can try to manipulate your opponents into crossing your line by drawing in front of them, but you'll want to make sure they don't try to do the same to you.
Nibble it up
While you want to be careful about crossing the lines of your opponents, you shouldn't hesitate to take a bite out of their territory in order to add to your own. In fact, you'll likely have to in order to keep adding to your score, especially as the game progresses. Again, it's easiest to take little pieces at first, but if you realize your opponent is far away - or not paying attention - that's your chance to take a sizeable piece of their claim.
The only transaction in the game is a purchase to remove ads, and if you really want to rise to the top, you might consider forking over the cash. The ads are frustratingly intrusive, playing after almost every round, and it can be hard to get into the flow of the game when you're constantly interrupted by them. Removing them lets you get rounds in quicker, and get more practice -but how worthwhile it is to have the extra time is up to you.
