I think you are on to part of the scoring.  It's a plus and minus; each time you use a card at the bottom, it's a minus,  and each pair you make is a plus.  So, the fewer cards you use does affect the score.  But you also have to clear the pyramid.  All the same, it does not appear to be at all consistent and not alot of fun.

Does playing faster count that much? I thought that using fewer letters from the bottom more  from the pyramid is important.  What is your opinion?

I have taught myself to play Pyramid Solitaire much faster. Now, I score in the 1800's once in about five games. Still something is wrong with game be cause I have never scored higher than 1846.

But one wonders how do they get these scores day after day?

Same people, same scores every day. Very poorly designed site. Play "Pyramid" and finish get "Play Again", "Play Now", and finally "Play". How many times do you need to ask? Think I will stick to playing Microsoft games. Much better site and no commercials.

I see the same names day after day "bonnie" is always at the top in the 1850's   I think I play reasonably well. Ages ago I got 1838.  I can usually get into the 1800's but never high. Have you any ideas how these same people make high scores daily?  Thanks.

I've had questions about the scoring in Pyramid Solitaire for some time now.  It seems every day ten players get their 1800+ high scores and I can never even get close, even when clearing all cards with good times.  I don't have a gaming laptop (meaning fast), but still who are these privileged people?   FYI, I think each card turned without making a pair will cost you though, so subtracting from the score is possible.

I agree! The scoring in this game is a problem.
