Help with Tilt Game

I am trying to add code which says that if you leave the board flat (un-tilted) more than 1 second the it’s game over; this is because left flat, the game just keeps adding lives and points. { Ignore the middle 128 number: that is for future light level on hardware like PyGamer or Kittenbot to make it more interesting where you have to shine a flashlight on the board PLUS tilt it to score points. } When I pull the if/then block into “on game update 1000 ms” it shows “lose” immediately ; not one second later. So I want to stop the cheaters who just leave the board flat without trying to score between -5 and +5 and so rack up points and lives by not playing. Any ideas ? (happy to explain more if this is not clear)
