Brilliance Point Formula
For a 6-letter wheel, 4x(words found)-6 = BP
For a 7-letter wheel
5x(words found)-8= BP
Thanks. Want to do a zoom somtime?
Love life, be kind to others, and thanks for the memories! It’s been a fun ride.
PS. The scoring of brilliance is rather straight forward. Because it is partly based on the longest word in the puzzle, at first glance the scoring looks more complicated than it really is.
I’ve tried solving puzzles using lots of hints. This solved the puzzles very quickly, but the speed had no effect on the brilliance score.
In addition, there is a consistent linear relationship between brilliance score and words solved. The relationship holds true regardless of player ability. I would not expect this to be true if player speed affected the score.
I think the evidence is pretty clear about this—speed has no effect on the brilliance score.
Brilliance score should be viewed as an overall player score giving one a rough idea about how many puzzle levels a player has completed. The magic of brilliance scoring might be gone, but you’re still “brilliant”, Jillian!
Jillian, brilliance score is not affected by the speed in solving a puzzle or the number of wrong guesses. It is based solely on the words in the puzzle; it is a set value for each puzzle.
I’ve read ppls opinions about how brilliance is scored elsewhere. Some believe the speed at which you complete a puzzle factors into the brilliance score for that puzzle. What’s your opinion on this extra layer of brilliance mystery? Ty in advance! Have a great week!
Apolakay, brilliance is based on the number of words and length of words in a puzzle. The game developers have not divulged the formula, but some players have worked it out empirically.
Suffice to say, puzzles with the shortest and fewest words will have the lowest brilliance score, while puzzles with longer words and/or more words will have a higher brilliance score.
For example, if two puzzles have the same total number of words but the longest word for each puzzle is different, the puzzle that has a longer word in it will have a higher brilliance score.
The brilliance score DOES NOT include bonus words not found in the puzzle. So, each puzzle level essentially has a preset brilliance level, regardless of the number of bonus words found.
Empirically, I have found that a brillance score has a roughly 3:1 ratio relationship to overall words solved. Because this relationship is based on empirical data that includes bonus words and does not take into account word length, the 3:1 relationship is not an exact one and only serves as a rough conversion factor.
I have been playing Wordscape for some time and I have been wondering how each game is scored. Some games only have a few words and gives you a high score, some games have many words but a lower score. Does anybody have an idea why? I would appreciate your responses.
We’re good now—keep enjoying the game 😊
Tippytoes, you are correct. That was a terrible thing for me to do. Please forgive me.
Should not have said that. I am sorry
FYI, I’m on a great team of wonderful people. The quote which you’ve taken out of context was regarding tournament scoring; so no, my team is not a high scoring super team.
You’ve obviously done that for negative effect. Thanks a lot.
I initially responded to your idea in good faith. I guess that was a mistake now.
Ok. Here’s what I have.
Tippytoes has made a LOT of Threads.

What do you know? Post here.
No idea. Just hoping that everyone will have a great time.
Annabelke/Dave. How do you change your name on the chat?
Tiptoes, love reading your comments on forums! You are concise, clear and I like your style!
With 1500...my best score is 2850 and I still got 11 place.
And I started as soon as it popped up just saying.
On my first tourney I placed 11th I was just barely away from 10th placed.
