Thanks for this answer. Playing "Outspell", I'm a pretty good player without any aids, and was wondering about those ultra-high scores. Now I know how it happens.

I was pretty specific in the first post.

 

If you have a great game going and the page suddenly burps and wants to start over, hit the refresh page thing fast, then go back and continue the game.

 

That's one more tip I wish I realized before. 

 

You can also use that "tip" to cheat, but cheating kind of spoils the game for me.  Basically, if you make a bad shot, losing that 5000 point bonus for a perfect game?  You CAN hit refresh as long as the ball is still moving, and then load game and "continue" in order to try the shot again. 

 

If you do this often enough it would be possible to have a "perfect" game, but it's not much of a game if you have to cheat to play good pool.

If you don't sink at least one ball with break shot quit game and start over. If you miss a shot after break so you won't run the table quit and start over (you just lost 5000 points). When you quit and play again computer will ask if you want to continue game in progress. Hit NO. Try to win the first 2 games and run the table except for the 9 ball on third game so your score at that point is over 70,000. Always line up your shot and use english to place que ball at end of shot, this takes practice. Don't use full power when shooting. You will notice the computer uses just enough power to sink the target ball. I figured out the disappearing 9 ball problem. As soon as the 9 ball disappears from the table quit the game. When you hit the 'play again' the computer will ask if you want to continue with game in progress hit yes. The 9 ball will be back on the table.

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.

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!
