In Response to Re: FINALLY!!!!!!!:
I always play the games I like over and over. In fact, if I have a game that is not going my way, I'll start over.

I do the same. I start over many times before I get a score high enough to make the Leaderboard. In Pool I know exactly what score I have to make with each ball and if I don't make this I restart the game. I often have two or more browser windows open with the same game open to the "start" point. When I decide one game is not going well I restart this game and move immediately to the next window, bypassing the time of waiting.
In some of the games there are certain configerations that are more likely to give high scores. Naturally if you only play these it is more likely you will get on the Leaderboard. Even with this, you still have to have developed a skill in the particular game you are playing. Sometimes this comes with practice (playing for hours, day after day) or figuring out how the game designer set up the scoring or finding some defect in the design of the game. And there is luck. On some days I spend hours trying to make the Leaderboard and on others it happens immediately.
