Inspired by this very interesting blog post: Level 9 - the perfect fit
and due to my experience with first time players during playtesting or at conventions, I want to share my ideas about calculating your score as easily as possible.

I played a quick solo game this morning and this is what it looked like in the end:


Don't ask me about the zero on the 2nd level. I thought it could add just the surface I need to put s.th. on top later – well it didn't

How to proceed:

1 Don't take the tiles bit by bit putting them on just one pile while summing up the points at the same time. It is quite a lot of calculating and if you make a mistake, it is hard to remember the level of the tiles.

2 Instead, from top to bottom, take all the tiles of a level and put them aside. Keep the different levels in ascending order and separate from each other. Ignore the base (level 0) as it always scores 0 points.

3 Then, starting with level 1, sum up the numbers on that level and multiply the sum with the number of the level (of course you can skip multiplying by 1 on level 1 ninja). Memorize the result and move on to the next level. Add the results per level on your way to the top level.



Of course this is not the ONE way to calculate your score, but maybe this can be helpful. Enjoy!

Looks like a very simple and logical thing to do! Thanks. (My copy arrives today - hopefully in the next couple of hours.)

This is perfect! My copy's due any day now and this would not have been entirely an intuitive solution to me so I'm grateful for your post!

I take the number so from the lowest level before calculating and put down the sum with the numbers . Then next with adding etc. looks nice but needs more time for calculating
