No real reason to clear the records. Some are obvious, while others not. Be too hard and complicated to go through everyone for a majorly free game. My scores are skewed since I play at work and I often stop after playing for a minute on the board because I have to alt-tab out haha. The records don't matter so much for me on this platform, as long as I have fun.

The real question is; why would anyone want to cheat at this game? This is such a soloist's game where we are forced to make ourselves better all the time. It doesn't make any sense.

From my experience, it is just to create drama among people. It is their idea of fun.

How is it that someone can have a 999.99 score in the 5X5 boards? There is a leader there who's been on these boards for the better part of the past ten years, which makes me think this person isn't cheating. However, 999.99? Really?

I noticed that too. I think the average pts/game stats max out just below 1,000. They probably never thought anyone would get to that level. JMHO fasteddieb seems legit to me but his numbers and records are mind blowing. I've never seen such a cluttered trophy rooom as his!

Welcome to 5x5 Brisul! I've seen you in the top scores in 4x4. I'm impressed. I can't play 4x4. It's too small and too short of boards. I'm no good at it. Plus I don't know the 3 letter words like I do the 4 letter words.
Here's a video on my brother's computer before they updated the algorithm that shows my fingers as well:

I've improved my vocab and pattern recognition since then plus with the new algorithm there's bigger boards.
My latest videos don't show my fingers because I haven't been back to my brother's place but they're on my same channel (videos without showing my fingers).

Just scored 820...a high for me on 5X5. It's pretty fun over here if you can get on a roll. There's always more time than I think there's going to be!

I'm realizing now that an average in the 600's on the 5x5 grids is the equivalent of an average in the 300's on the 4x4 grids. I don't really have time to practice to make the top three in average scores, so I think I may have to walk off into the sunset here on wordtwist for a while if not longer.
