Ikariam Scores Guide by Mirarik

There are currently 12 different high scores that can be viewed by selecting the high score option at the top of the screen.

After doing so, you can select the high score you wish to view and then choose either the “Own Position” which will take you to your score or a certain rank e.g. 100-200. Your own high score will be highlighted in green and your alliance members in yellow.
When two or more people have the same high score, the latest player to get the score is listed at the top.
