Vista Home Prem. I looked at my statistics and couldn't believe it.
My top score is 1275! I know there must be a glitch from lots of "undo", maybe in conjunction with a "saved game". I know I never won in 25 moves ;). Anyone else have this happen?

Hi Si,

I mostly play beginner, that's where the weird score is from.

Opu,
You have me beat, my new top score is only 1338. I don't know if my high scores involve undo or not. There certainly must be a glitch in the scoring.

I've had maybe a dozen high scores 1260-1289 range. Using beginner level with 'real' top score of 1211. The bug seems to involve the undo's after the option is given to quit or continue and undo. If I continue and undo a 100 point scoring option in the process, the points get stuck somewhere. Can't reproduce it yet but am observing to see if I can make it happen at will. running Vista Home Premuim 2007, since May 2009

I too have a question about a very high score of 1910.

It is easy to get caught up in the game and ignore the scoring if you are not playing towards a high score rather than win percentage. At the intermediate level the scoring allows only up to 1300 points as far as I can tell. You begin with 500 points and points are deducted for each move or undo you play. You are awarded 100 points for each suit stack” that is completed (8 are available) for a total of 800 added to your score at the bottom to reach your final score in a successfully played game. At any point your moves and your score will equal 500 points plus 100 point for any suit stack completed. A good score seems to be anything around 1250 meaning it took 50 moves to win the game. Once you have played over 500 moves things are not so straight forward. Beyond 500 moves you get into negative points that are, for some reason, reset to zero when you place your next undo move. You also are given your beginning score of 500 points back at some point in all this mess. I have never played past 1300 moves that I have made a note of but I am sure I have done so at some point. Somehow I have a high score of 1910 which I did not catch when I scored it and I don’t see how this can be. I have played some very, very long games and have noticed at some point you get your beginning score-count of 500 back. Could that be it? Is it possible I was awarded extra points for an unusually “short move” game won? I would really like to understand this. Can anyone tell me why or a present a maybe why?
Using the unlimited undo function I have found I can win 98% of up to around 400 games. If you are willing to play any game for quite a while practically every game can be won if you don’t have a life. I've averaged 100% of 100 games played just for grins with no re-deals. Took a picture of my statistics box with my phone and sent it to my friends who could not have cared less and pondered an intervention. Screw them. Right now I am 563 out of 610 for a 92% win ratio but I have not been trying very hard for the last 75 games or so. I do not select the hands I play. I play every deal. A good way to increase your average is to be selective about which deals you play.

Another note: the cards do not seem to show the statistical spread expected. If you deal a hand with a lot of 3s and 7s you would not expect to see any more for a while but the opposite seems to be the case. Play a hand with a lot of any card in the beginning deal and you will see an unusual number of that same card in the first quarter of the game. I have not done the math but this does not make sense to me. Is there anyone else who has noticed this? If so, any insight?
