Prevent opponent from selecting desired play
When playing against a friend or friends, use this trick so they cannot choose a play, or more accurately, the one that they want. Make sure you select your play before your friend(s) do, then pause the game. Their play book menu will go back to the beginning, forcing them to start picking the play again. Keep doing this until the play clock runs out, and they will not be able to choose their own play.
