I've jotted down my scores from 15 games. I've listed them from best game to worst game.
Cards Left in Draw Pile -- Time Left -- # Cards Lost By -- Score
10 -- 4:13 -- Won -- 12656
8 -- 4:06 -- Won -- 11598
7-- 4:03 -- Won -- 10044
7 -- 4:03 -- Won -- 9744
6 -- 4:08 -- Won -- 11848
5 -- 4:08 -- Won -- 11548
5 -- 4:05 -- Won -- 9448
1 -- 4:02 -- Won - 10144
1 -- 4:01 -- Won -- 9594
0 -- 3:58 -- Won -- 12040
0 -- 4:02 -- 1 -- 9300
0 -- 3:59 -- 2 -- 7900
0 -- 4:00 -- 2 -- 13500
0 -- 4:03 -- 2 -- 7450
0 -- 4:02 -- 3 -- 6200

As you can see, I got my best score (13500) from a game I lost by 2 cards ... 844 points more than a game I won with 10 cards still in the draw pile! I think we can assume that if there's a large number in the draw pile, you've played some long strings of cards.

I sure would like an explanation of how this is scored.

I agree so I just take my good old time. Scoring in this game is stupid but if I ever figure it out I'll give everyone a heads up Rolling Eyes
I think it might have to do with how many cards on the top row you play before you have to go to the bottom cards to play though...not sure. However, it seems like when I play a few cards on top before I have to flip cards over on the bottom, I get more points/higher score

I took my time and looked at the scoring per card. The first card you play in a run is 100 pts, second card 250 and up. The longest run I got was 5 cards and the 5th was 900 pts. Suit doesn't seem to matter. Level on pile also doesn't seem to matter.

The more cards played in a run scores higher. But after looking at the all time high scores no one has ever scored max points and I don't think it is possible to do so. Treat payout should be adjusted.
