Post Earning Bonus Puzzles
Hi Patrick,
What is the alogrithm you use to earn a bonus puzzle

I know after a certain score, bonus puzzles are awared at every 250 points.

But when one is just starting, the scores to reach a new bonus puzzles are different.

I want to know if I ever missed a bonus puzzle.
There have been a few times when I did not do the bonus puzzle right away, and only realized I had one to do when I was approaching the next level.

Thank you

My understanding is that it's every 600 points if you're not a subscriber and every 250 points if you are.

Yeah, for non-subscribers it is every 600, but at the beginning the puzzles are at 25, 50, 100, and then I forget [mellow]

Yes, it's every 250 points for a subscriber, and every 600 points for a non-subscriber.

The first five times the number of points required is smaller:
- 25, 50, 100, 250, 400 for a non-subscriber
- 20, 40, 80, 120, 180 for a subscriber

Thank you everyone for helping out.

For me, and I suspect others, there was a period between when you joined and when you become a subscriber.

Now, I know I missed some bonus puzzles in the the beginning.

I think once I reached the milestone where it becomes 250 pt to earn the next bonus, I have caught them all.

Patrick, I have another odd question.
I trigger my bonus puzzles when I reach my points earned ends in 05 or 55, always 250 pts apart.
I became a subscriber one week after joining, before reaching the 180 pt bonus puzzle.
Why do I trigger the bonus puzzle when the pts earned ends with 05 or 55?
