I wonder what the highest possible score is, if you could place the 20 numbers in any order.

My attempt: 198 pts. I'm sure, you can come up with a better result.

The 4-tile at 3rd level cannot be there as it has only the 9-tile below it.

No wait, it did work. Flip the 7 7 4 180degrees, it overlaps the four and two then.

I must have rotated the layer when I took it apart for the photo.

There seems to be wrong placement on 2nd level though. One of the 1s only lays on just one 3 below, isn't it? Anyway, other than that, great structure!

Ah yes. You are correct.

Rearranged... Basically swapping out a zero and two. Loses me two points but now at 207.

Here is the Rearranged part and then the whole thing.
207 is the best I can figure!

216 points

0 * 14 = 0
1 * 24 = 24
2 * 7 = 14
3 * 18 = 54
4 * 12 = 48
5 * 14 = 70
6 * 1 = 6
Total: 216


Squeezes out an extra layer, with a mesmerizing symmetry.

I just discovered the game and really wanted to see how high I could go. Following the model of the high score one, I got the score to 221, squeezing out a few more points by cutting one level but sticking super-close to the rectangular shape. The squarer base allows layer 3 to score higher, which improves the score.

Layer 0 (0 points): 2x 4 ; 2x 3 ; 2x 0 1x 1
Layer 1 (13 points): 2x 5 ; 1x 2, 1x 1
Layer 2 (36 points): 2x 8 ; 1x 2
Layer 3 (54 points): 2x 9
Layer 4 (48 points): 2x 6
Layer 5 (70 points): 2x 7

13+36+54+48+70= 221 total.




Excuse the fur; I was playing on the ottoman that my cat pretty much lives on. And no, I absolutely will not admit how many hours this took me to come up with.

Hello everybody!

Nice game this one, I just discovered it. I tried and got 2 more points, that is a total of 226, by switching a 4 with a 2 in layers 0-1.

Now trying to get some more points...

I found 3 more points putting a 1 on top in level 6. So this is a total of 229 points. Wondering how to still increase the total...
