I thought I understood how this game was scored -- evidently, I'm wrong.

How does one play this such that you can AVERAGE 13.5 points per word spelled correctly?

I see someone's score of 3160 points awarded for spelling correctly 234 words, over the "last 5 days" (neuron summary).

Hello.... Anyone there?

Which feature of the game allows a person to average 13.5 points per word?

Hello, first of all, 3160/234 = 12.4, it is not 13.5.

You get 15 points for 30 expert level words a day in Spelling bee, every word above 30 scores 1 point. So it is very well possible to average 12.44 points per word in 5 days. What is interesting though is that 3160 is a very high score, when you take into account the way I described you can score 5x30x15 = 2250 points, plus some 1 point words (234-5*30=234-150 words, i.e. 84 words in this case). My summary is a good example, because I play the game every day - I won 161 times and got 2247 points in the last 5 days (that is an average 13.96 per word).

Are you sure it was 3160 points in 5 days?

Oh, well, the difference between 12.X and 13.X makes all the difference. I retract the question.

If the maximum neuron points on "expert" is 15, then surely an average greater than this is impossible isn't it? I only ever do 30 correct answers, as the drop down to 1 thereafter is too severe!

I guess it is. I've just checked my Neurons summary - last 5 days:

3177 neurons / 237 times = 13.405
