Pyramid Scoring

All scoring in Pyramid revolves around the Bonus, the value of which is displayed constantly. The game starts with the Bonus at 100 points and is counted down at a rate of 1 point every 3 seconds.

The Bad Points

Every time Undo is used-100 Points

Scoring Strategy

To achieve the big scores, you need to increase the Bonus to a nice respectable level as soon as possible by clearing out the pyramid and reserve quickly. This will result in you being awarded more points for all further pairs. As Kings are worth double, it is worth leaving any in the reserve until the Bonus has been cranked up nice and high.
