I can't figure out how to score higher than getting all my pips off while the computer hasn't reached home base. My highest score is something like 53, and that with a gammon. So how are people scoring 151? I have no timer to indicate that I must play faster. There are no doubling options. What's there to do differently?

Your score is the amout of pips the computer has left over once you are home minus the amount of unused moves you have.

The idea is to throw off stones closest to their home base. EG the game starts with 2 stones on pips (point) 8. If you throw those off, the computer has to re-enter the stones on pips 24 thru 18. If you beat him then, your score can go over 167 (the amount of pips to play at the beginning of the game).
