No offense to this thread, but you still have to add, multiply, and memorize to calculate your score. There is an even easier way.

Let's use the same picture



Add the level-3 tiles -- 8

To that sum (8), add the level-2 and level-3 tiles -- 8 + 8 + 9 + 1 + 4 = 30

To that sum, add the level-1 and level-2 and level-3 tiles -- 30 + 8 + 9 + 1 + 4 + 9 + 1 + 0 + 5 + 6 + 8 = 81

No multiplication and no (well, OK, one tiny bit of) memorization, just addition.

wait

A+2B+3C = C + (C+B) + (A+B+C)

(can be continued with level 4..)

Anyway, I think the concept is to pull off your tiles from the top down into separate stacks to make counting easier. From there add up the score however you please as opposed to what the rulebook suggests.

My personal way is that if there were, say, the same number in Level 1 and Level 2, I'd ditch one of those and put the other in level 3.

0 5 6 8 9 1

4 9 1

9 1 8

19+8+54

Personally I find that adding long strings of numbers to be harder than adding shorter strings combined with multiplication by small numbers but maybe that's just me.
