Ok. I'm just wondering how it's done. How in the world can you get so many points? I checked out the profiles of you folks in the top 5. You've only authored a few, some zero quizzes and you've hardly taken any! Share your secret! I could use some points.

Oh, and yay for me! I just broke top 500!

I'm guessing the points are from huge wagering in showdown and TQOTD wagers. oogie

My guess is that these people are geniuses at answering the question of the day (did you check their levels?) AND they wager whenever possible!

Probably won a few showdowns along the way too!

I am not top 5, but I am top 20, and have been top 10 except I lost 14 million this year.
For me it is QOD's wager, a few quizzes written and taken, wagering and showdowning. I know some people get loads of points on word rounds and word puzzles...but i think that once you get a few million that way, a few good wagers and showdowns can really vault you up there

though a mosquito by comparison to the likes of machiabelly, I'll confirm that its true that once you get past 2 million a single wager can bump you up to 3 and then you're a space probe with a gravity boost. I was under a million for 5 months, then once I broke a million made 3 million in a coupla weeks, literally.

Well, I'm not top 5, but I am #7. When I first started I took and wrote a lot more quizzes as well as did a TON of word rounds. I don't have quite as much free time to be doing all of those now.

What has been said so far is correct. Once you get into the millions you can get lots of points fast by using showdown tokens and wager tokens. My last 2 showdowns (which I won - yay!) earned around 20 million points each. The key is using the showdown tokens (many don't because they are afraid of losing) and always wagering the maximum with a wager token.
Also use you showdown tokens wisely. If you are close to passing someone and the next guy up has considerably more points, wait until you're beneath the guy with the tons of points before using the showdown tokens. If you're close to getting your next wager token, wait to use that showdown token until after you have used (and hopefully won) the wager token because you'll probably be higher up on the board then.

Just click on "Leaderboards" - it's in yellow at the top of most every page! Then select which leaderboard you want to see...the monthly scores are listed for each type of event.
