    You just have to keep completing puzzles until you get to this total accumulated score. To view your current progress, go to leaderboards and hit LB to see your total buku score. To get this the quickest, you will want to use easy difficulty with autopencil on. Then just go through the boxes finding the ones that have only one possible solution highlighted. Here are the approximate scores you get from each size puzzle and the average time it took me to complete it:

    6x6: time ~ 20-25 sec, points ~ 28,000
    8x8: time ~ 45-50 sec, points ~ 51,000
    9x9: time ~ 65-70 sec, points ~ 89,000
    12x12: time ~ 150-160 sec, points ~ 148,000

    From this you can see the best bang for your buck is probably the 9x9 puzzles.

    I got the 10M score and 200 completed games within one game of each other. To do this you will want to throw in a lot of 6x6 puzzles as well to get your completed games up. Here is the final tally of my completed puzzles to reach 200/200:

    95 = 6x6 puzzles on easy
    9 = 8x8 puzzles on easy
    63 = 9x9 puzzles on easy
    6 = 12x12 puzzles on easy
    1 = 6x6 puzzle on medium
    1 = 9x9 puzzle on medium
    1 = 6x6 puzzle on hard
    23 = 6x6 puzzles on easy online co-op
    1 = 6x6 puzzle on easy online team battle
    1 = 6x6 puzzle on easy online duel

    total games = 201
    total buku score = 10,055,988

    toddycstThe person that wrote this solution is the best ever!!!! 9x9 on easy with auto pencil on is the best way to go.

    I used a website to aid me in getting quick solutions, and therefore more points, on 9x9 Hard puzzles. Just type the starting numbers into the respective cells, click solve, and transfer the information over.

    The website I used was..

    Hope you find it useful.

    What I did was kind of a combination of Elem3ntal80's and Crowb 360's guides. I used Crowb's link to solve a 9x9 puzzle and wrote down both the puzzle number (from the game) and the solution (just the blanks that needed filled in) and worked through them that way (loading the same puzzle every game so the same solution works everytime). Averaged less that 90 seconds with ~158k per game, made short work of the points. Did the same for the 6x6 easy, just wrote down the solution as I worked it then reloaded the same puzzle (6x6 easy puzzles were simple to memorize.)
