Re: Daily Crossword

Nope. That's what I scored. I do 2 or three crosswords every day... that's prob why I did alright on this.

I just did it again to watch the points tally, and this is what I found:

It is partially based on the amount of time you take to finish it. As soon as you enter a correct letter, you earn points, but every second-or-so that you don't enter another correct letter, you are loosing points. Enter an incorrect letter, and you loose even more points. The tally stops when the last square is filled in.

Thanks, that explains why my score was so low. I don't do crossword either. My mom would have loved this.

Re: Daily Crossword

I've been doing this crossword every day for about a month now, but I never knew there were points involved, I never noticed the score line above the puzzle. How is the score calculated? Is it degree of difficulty? I actually think this puzzle is too easy, I wish it was a little more challenging.

Still, I enjoy doing it, it's good exercise for my brain.

Edit: Never mind, I see it's timed. I just scored 1483 this morning.
