Thanks for sharing your strategy, @smfg!

Since [10x10] is not timed, try out a block in several locations before dropping it. Clear as many lines as you can in each turn, before placing anything else; it will open up spaces and give you options. Always try to leave open space for a 4-square and a 9-square, just in case. Give yourself a hug when you top your previous high score.

I too wonder how those high scores are possible. Does anyone know how the pooints are accumlated? Do you much higher points if you clear to or three lines at a time?

The highest score I've ever gotten is about 2900 in 10x10 and that was probably a 20 minute game.  Yesterday I saw a score in excess of 197,000!  First, that score is clearly not possible and second, using 20 minutes for a 2900 game, it would take 22 HOURS to get such a score.  Obviously, I'm not trying to get such an astronomical score but I'd like to improve my score and I DO concentrate on clearing lines.  But invariably I hit that point where there are no more moves.  So I'm wondering, are there any legitimate "tricks" used in scoring well on 10x10.  I had a dream that, like Tetris, you can turn the game pieces and fit them into the grid in multiple ways.  But if that's possible, I haven't figured out how to do it.  So for those 10x10 gamers who get scores in the 10K-20K range, do you have a method you use?  Or are those scores just luck?
