Tip & How-To about Games
When you play solitaire on the computer there is an almost impossible to understand system of scoring. However after many thousands of games of soliare I believe that I have figured out the system used to score a game.
The game is scored in both positive and negative points. The positive points are awarded as follows, if you move a card from the table to the foundation you receive 10 points, moving a card from the waste pile to the playing field is 5 points. Moving a card directly from the waste pile to the foundation is 10 points, however if you move th e card first to the playing field and then up to the foundation you will be awarded 15 points. Any time you flip over a card on the playing field you are awarded 5 points.
It is also possible to lose points while playing. If you move a card down from the foundation you will lose 15 points. When playing with a waste pile that only flips a single card at a time you will lose 100 points every time you start the pile over again.
When playing on the computer there are also bonus points that are awarded at the end of the game. The bonus points are awarded in the formula 700,000 / seconds to finish. If the game takes longer than 30 seconds to complete you will lose 2 points for every ten seconds of game time but will be awarded extra points, but if your game takes less than 30 seconds you will not be awarded any bonus points.
So for highest score don't play for too long after 30 seconds, never play a card directly from the waste pile into the foundation and avoid taking cards down from the foundation back into play.
