How is it possible to have 13,305 points after 2 WordPuzzles?
Surely the most you could have right now would be 11,000

I would like to understand that too. I got wrong-footed somehow at the start of last month and never could make it up.

5,000 points for completeing it and bonus points for finishing either 1st 2nd or 3rd.

I am pretty sure that top finish gets 1,500 bonus points (or is it 2,000) I can't remember

Top 5 get an extra 1000, 6-10 get an extra 500 and it gets regressively more piddley from there down; but something other happens depending which side of midnight you do the last puzzle of the previous month. Apparently I keep getting it wrong.

I'm always getting caught by this 'cos I usually do the WP soon after it goes live each time!

Thing is, the WP changes at 8pm, the month at midnight. So, if you do the last evening WP of the month in its first four hours the 5,000 points go to the last month - after that the 5,000 points go onto the new month's score.

So by doing that WP late (and the one at the other end of the month early) you can actually get yourself one more set of 5,000 points in that month than those who didn't plan so carefully!

Of course you'll be one short the following month, but that's the price you pay for your four week's fame ...

Smoke is right..... top 5 get a bonus of 1,000 points and 6-10 get a bonus of 500.

So lets do the math here.....Mar31st WP (done after midnight) could get you at the most 6,000 points..... Apr.1st WP could get you at the most 5,000 points (bonus is not added until after 8pm)
That's a TOTAL of 11,000 points!!

Something is amiss
