What if I can't avoid landing on a Wedge HQ?

In going for Maxed Out and You Know Too Much, wanting to answer every question before capturing the wedges, what am I supposed to do if a roll can only send me to a Wedge HQ before I am ready to capture it? Do I just have to start a new game? I've gotten near the end of 2 CTB games with perfect answers then lost a multiplier because I wasn't ready to capture a wedge.

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

Hi Doc.

Just roll the die, and if you find that you would be forced to land on a Wedge HQ... exit to Dashboard. Then fire the game up again, and load your last save from that game. I used this method last night to get the two achievements of which you speak, works like a charm. I did take the added precaution of turning auto-save off before rolling. If you see that you can land on a 'safe' spot, then turn the autosave back on, so that it saves when you answer the question. Then turn it back off again. To be honest, I am not sure if it matters whether auto-save is on or not, as it only saves after a question. But it is good to turn it off before tricky catergories in case you should get a question wrong!

It does seem to be near impossible to avoid the Wedge HQs when you near the end of the multiplier building... think I had to quit to dashboard something like 5 times! Hope this helps!

I'm having the same problem, I landed on a roll again, which then made me roll a 2, which was unsafe. I went to dash and tried again, still 2. I did this about 4 more times and I keep rolling a 2, does anyone know if the "roll again" spaces are scripted to specific amounts? I hope I'm not stuck in a roll 2 loop I cannot escape...

Edit: Never Mind, pressed up on the left stick instead of clicking A twice and it gave me a 6, FINALLY
