People are getting the unbelievable high scores on Backgammon the same way others are getting unbelievable high scores playing other games. They're downloading a program that aids them to cheat. They have such big egos that they get their kicks out of keeping honest players from reaching the leader board. Personally, I think only AARP Members should be able to play the games provided.

 

As for me, I get my kicks out of surpassing my own personal score.

hacking/cheating

 

In  OUTSPELL, for example, probably something like making all letters worth 10 points, and all words triple scored, or turning all tiles into blank tiles for the player.

How are people getting such high scores in Backgammon? It's unreal.

I love the AARP games.  I would like to be on the wall for high scores.  It seems like when I win a game it doesn't record my score.  Also some games i play to register played for example cross word and word find.  Any suggestions.  Thank You

     I don't have any tips to share, but I would like for others to comment if they are having any luck playing the Age of Alchemy Mahjongg game.  I keep trying, thinking the developer will update the game so it won't be so slow to respond.  However, there has been no improvement yet.  Sometimes I must click both of the matching objects two times (for a total of 6 clicks) to get the match to "take".  I am a patient person, but "this is enough", as my late mother would say, "to make a preacher cuss." 

     I tried the same game on another web site, and the game was just as klunky there so it is not AARP's fault.  I play using my laptop with Windows 10, a wireless mouse, and my Edge browser.            What results do others have playing with a touch screen or mouse pad, or on a mobile device, or using a different browser? 

     I wish we had a good version of the Momjongg game that was discontinued.  It was my favorite.

When playing Nintendo Transformer Wars with your grandkids, alternate thumbs on the trigger device and you will be able to win!

Odd to see so many views but no comments.

 

Anyway, I wish they'd fix the disappearing 9 ball on an end scratch.

 

Anyone have any tips at all on other games?
