HUGE Score

Written by bloggermark

I don’t think I’ve seen a single game score as high as flawles$gal’s game 3. Now that’s one gameboard I’d like to see! What kind of strategy does it take to score that high? Especially against someone who posts 400? And don’t bother posting comments that accuse of cheating. I really am interested in seeing how the board is stacked, how TW/TL combinations are utilized, and yes, how exotic the words are.

Update @ 10:07 PM Pacific – Here’s the famous board. (Thanks, flawles$gal!)

Commentary from flawles$gal,

“the reason behind the high score is pure luck. My opponent was a very good player & as u can see from the 1st & 2nd games our scores were very close but on the 3rd game I just got the best tiles at the right time. Most of my words played were scored between 80-143!!! So I guess it was very difficult for my opponent to catch up.”

      There are lots of words that are not acceptable – they just aren’t in the dictionary. It’s frustrating, but it’s the way it is.

    I’ve been working my butt off on increasing my all-time average. It’s approaching 40. But yeah when I look at the global leaderboard it’s just aggravating… I want more actual score to compare mine to.. Not made up ones.

    I’ve even made a few friends who I play frequently. They rarely beat me. But all of the sudden they’ll out-score me by 5000-10000 points overnight! There is no one who can score that many points in a night and still have a low average word score.
    So yeah there are definitely exploits out there.

    My highest score so far was 552. My opponent was oblivious to the TW and TL’s she left open. I average between 20-25. I’ve been curious about the global leaderboard with 999 averages and what a true high average for a regular player would look like. There are a few on my personal leaderboard with averages of 60, but that’s because they only play one-two words a week.

    I am disappointed that the leaderboard option seems to have all but disappeared. The high global scores are incorrect though! No one can average 999 per move!

    How did a person get 65 points from the word REFS?

    • Ian says:

      It depends on the spots the tiles were placed on. For example, if placed on the TW, the score could have jumped from 7 to 21 and added with the connecting word’s points adding up to a total of 65

  6. Daniel says:

    The simple short answer is that they have found bugs to exploit. There is no feasible manner in normal play to average triple digits, let alone high double digit, words in every game. Scoring 400-600 words in a game is well within the grasp of anyone with a reasonable vocabulary and an eye for grabbing the bonus tiles while preventing their opponent from taking advantage of them. But word averages much above 20-30 are a sign of game manipulation; the math simply does not work out.

    Ignore the global leaderboard because it is obviously flawed. Use the avg words score among only your trusted friends if you desire a means for comparison. Or just have fun playing.

      My sentiments entirely. REALLY, what game are all those global leader board cheats playing? I’m glad that you’ve cited 20-30 averages as normal. Although I’ve not yet reached 30 (currently averaging 24 this week).

    • daniel S says:

      i average 42 right now and i Don’t cheat but the game allows you to play around with the board. often times i just arrange the consonants and vowels in an order that sounds like a dictionary word and often time it works. other times if your good enough you can set yourself up for tw tl tl scors or even dw tw. i got 114 off of the word junk before

    • Youngconnolly says:

      I have a 39 point word average and I don’t cheat. If you get a few 100+ words combined with not playing very many games per week (I have 2 kids) then your average word point figure goes up.

    • Sky says:

      I’m pushing myself hard to increase my word average without cheating. This moment at 31.5. One way that has helped: one of my opponents doesn’t seem to care and frequently leaves openings to TW. The other thing is that I’m not worrying so much about winning. I play my highest scoring word and relax about strategy – within reason. It’s only a phase for now. I’ll go back to concentrate on winning again soon, and my points average will drop – because winning involves playing low scoring words that block my opponent.
