Beat the 1,640 game.

1,656 pts - 277 wds

I realize that you really have to wait for the right puzzle to get that super high score. Some may have more words but they're still harder.

Very close on this game. It's encouraging to break two all time records this month already. With perseverance I'm sure I can break some more. Takes a lot of energy though, but I've nothing else to spend it on.

I switched back to sitting in my chair in front of the window with the laptop resting upon my Monopoly board game box on my lap; think it has helped my speed and efficiency in typing. Looking outside while I play helps me relax. The bed, floor, table, or recliner just don't work as well for me. On a side note; when I play Wordtwist my wrists don't rest on the laptop as I've seen others do.

Every time you post a video I learn dozens of new words, then I go and find them on my own, to make the connection in memory stronger. Thanks for the videos, MegaWord, they are certainly helpful.

Thank you Lefting and Zolorbowl, I have some more improvements.

4x4 - 243 wds - 1,293 pts - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G15__HqGJo4

5x5 - 299 wds / 1,783 pts - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-V7xQmdyyE

5x5 - 289 wds / 1,721 pts - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=maS3-SoaeaY

I was so brutally close to breaking 300 words. Kind of heartbreaking, but I know I will do it if I want it enough.

There are a few more players you need to beat their high scores on

I think 1956 was the highest score I've seen from a legitimate player on 5x5.

Good luck!

Default Explanation

I see Kozyol had 345 words and 1953 points for the all time high on 5x5. They played over 10,000 games. I don't necessarily believe that's legit, because there's was no posts made about their achievements, their average scores where never over 700, quite easy on 5x5. If someone was capable of that they would be averaging very high, even higher than I am currently (227 words, 5x5). I believe it's most likely that they played a game years back when the game would lag sometimes and you could keep playing the game for an indefinite amount of time. I personally don't believe that is their truthful high score. The same thing is probably the case with Kirajstorm who had 240 words and 1226 points on 4x4. This may sound arrogant, but this is what I believe to be the truth in light of my experience with this game. That's why I'm glad to make videos so people will not doubt my scores, which I believe are the highest legitimate scores to date. So, yes I may need some luck to beat my own scores again.

Yeah, I believe that to be the case, too. Though, I think rafael's score in 4x4 is almost legit, but I still think you can beat his score, even if it isn't a legit score 1369 isn't that much higher than your current score

I wish I could see some of those kinds of boards you've been seeing, though I had a few boards with over 300 ultra rare and common (300+ in the common words row and 300+ words in the ultra rare row), but I haven't had anything close to that lately. Also, trying to get a 24 letter word board is making me crazy XD

I won't intrude any further in this thread now that I've said what I needed to say

Well, didn't beat 1,369 pts, but got an improvement.

4x4 - 1,333 pts / 211 wds - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNgXtzu2fUg

One of the best puzzles for points.
