mini crossword scoring

Just finished a mini crossword in under 50 seconds, every answer was correct, no help was used, and I received the lowest score I've ever had on this game (210).  Would like to know how the mini crossword game is scored.

Hi, @BarbaraC606176, is there anything I can do to help? I played the Aug. 4 puzzle to completion and didn't run into any issues.

I'm curious about it also, it seems the faster I solve it the lower the score.

I've found this, too, on all the crosswords. The faster I solve, the lower my score. I can't figure out what they are scoring.

According to AARP: "In Daily Crosswordscoring is calculated at game end with this formula: Score = Number of cells completed without help x 10. Bigger puzzles will have a higher total score."  No extra points for solving it quickly!! 😞
