I am also sad to see all time high scores go away; they give you something to shoot for!

 

And there is still something wrong with the leaderboards shown.  I just had a good game of "Ice Cream Blast" - it says my score is the 2nd best of the day, 3rd best of the week, and BEST OVERALL of the month - what kind of sense does that make?

My guess is that they are eliminating the ALL TIME HIGH SCORES because there was a security breach in that part of the games platform several months ago.

 

Scores were posted to the ALL TIME HIGH SCORES that were impossible to score through the play of the game. Sort of like saying you bowled a 420 when 300 is the maximum you can score in bowling.

 

Complaints about these BOGUS scores fell on deaf ears........ and now they are getting rid of something the gamers liked......... to cover for the security breach.... IMO.

I object to the removal of the all time best scores from the games pages.  You should eliminate the obviously bogus values and reinstate this column.  If you want to keep the monthly scores (a dubious addition at best), then go to four columns.  I agree with other players that the all time score rankings are a very desirable feature.  In the new system, you can see your own all time best scores, but you cannot compare them to other players' values.  This is definitely a step in the wrong direction!

I have sent AARP the same info.  Scores that are showing up Mahjong Toys are impossible to get.

Hello @kz6763, there's two ways to access your personal game high scores.

 

First, your personal game high score appears after game play and after you choose to Play Again. You'll see the Daily Top Score and Your Top Score.

 

Second, click the v (down arrow) next to your name in the upper right of the site toolbar. 

 

In the example below, click the down arrow next to “Hi, Sandra” which reveals additional options. Please select the “My Account” link.  You will be prompted to login again. This additional login is in place to protect your information.

From the My Account area, you’ll need to access the “View and Edit My Account” link/button which is available from the left rail of the page.  Here's a screen capture below for reference.

Within the left rail you should see your game scores.  This widget gives you the name of the game you your personal high score.
