vaki puzzle ratings

Some vakians are better than others at solving vaki puzzles. They can solve bigger and more difficult puzzles, faster and with fewer mistakes.

how we calculate ratings

We calculate ratings as the average of the top 20 vaki puzzle scores (over zero) for completed puzzles that you have recorded in the previous six months in 'just me' play.

if you have completed fewer than ten puzzles then the total of your scores is divided by twice the number of puzzles you have completed (i.e if you have completed four puzzles the total score is divided by eight)

Vaki Puzzle Ratings

We can't calculate your rating. For your rating to be displayed you must have solved one or more vaki puzzles online and you must be logged in

The tables list the top rated open (all age), under 18, under 16, and under 14 players. Scores of over 1,000 are expected when a 4x4 puzzle is solved without mistakes. Scores of over 2,000 require a 5x5 puzzle to be solved.
