    The points are worked out based on your accuracy and number of correct answers. So that it rewards people who play it lots but also accuracy.

    The exact formula is:

    p = c * 3 * a^3

    where p is points, c is number of correct answers and a is accuracy (as a fraction)

    Cubing the accuracy, punishes low amounts even more because I'm mean. Don't ask me why it multiples by 3, I honestly don't know ;)

    It was obviously made up but I think it works nicely and is too late to change now! But don't worry, there will be some cool variations of the game with other scoring methods once it's been running for a while.
