Not as extreme as bwt's game, but probably a top 5 for me on this odd metric of word/point discrepancies. In this case, I was ahead 85 on points but missed setting a new mark for Most Words by 4. I scored a really high (for me) average word score of not quite 5.1, whereas the record holder for words was right around 4.0.

Latest oddball result - minus 107 on points while plus 1 on words. My points per word was a pretty typical (for me) 4.6, whereas Samwise the Brave averaged 5.7. In other words, he found as many words as I did, but trounced me by finding the rarer words.

I just played a game that had 4 different highscore holders after 35 plays. I managed to get all 4 high scores with a new best/longest word, and I found just 68 words, which was still 4 more than the previous record, and I bettered the points record by 71 points.

Here's my latest oddball result, and perhaps the most extreme of any game I've played. I scored 90 fewer points than the points leader on a 4x4 board, while besting his/her word total by at least 11 words (as you can see, the former words leader was not the points leader, leading to the possibility that they had even fewer words than the words leader).

Anyway, I managed not even quite 3.7 points per word. For me and my play style, 4.0 points per word would be really low, so 3.7 is extraordinarily how. Meanwhile, the points leader scored at least 5.4 points per word, so the difference in points per word was a full 1.7. I looked back through the thread, and bwt posted an even more extreme instance where they set the point record while besting the individual with the previous records for points and words by scoring 1.8 more points per word.
