How is the Coffee Break scored?

The Coffee Break scoring system is designed to reward players who collect cards quickly, so to get high scores you simply need to play fast! But if you'd like more details you can find them below.

The Coffee Break is scored the same as any other game, except there's an additional bonus multiplier of up to 2x if you get a card with a timer bonus remaining.

The timer bonus is represented by a horizontal line that starts out at the full width of the card and shrinks down until it disappears when the timer bonus expires. When the line is at its full width, the bonus for collecting the card is 2x. The bonus counts down to 1x, so for example, if you collected the card with half of the bonus time remaining you would receive a 1.5x bonus score for that card.

The timer bonus for top layer of cards expires after 7.5 seconds, and the timer lasts an additional 7.5 seconds for each layer down in the stack. So the timer bonus for the cards on the second layer expires after 15 seconds, the third layer after 22.5 seconds, etc.

Timer bonuses are multiplied together for combos, so for example, a 4-card combo where each collected card has the maximum timer bonus of 2x will result in the combo score being multipled by 8 (2 x 2 x 2 x 2).

Bingo words are awarded the normal scoring without a timer bonus. The timer bonus is not applied to Bingo words to make the game more fair if a player learns the Bingo word for the Coffee Break game in advance, for example, from another player.

How do I get promoted on the corporate ladder?

Each week a percentage of the top performers are promoted and low performers are demoted as follows:

Ladder Level Promotions Demotions
Junior Collector (JrC) 50% ---
Senior Collector (SrC) 40% 10%
Principal Collector (PrC) 30% 10%
Lead Collector (LdC) 30% 10%
Manager (Mgr) 30% 10%
Director (Dir) 30% 10%
Vice President (VP) 30% 10%
Senior Vice President (SVP) 20% 10%
Executive Vice President (EVP) 10% 10%
Imagination Officer (IO) --- 10%

If there are fewer than 10 employees in a given ladder level, there will be no promotions or demotions that week.

How can I tell if I'm eligible for a promotion?

Check the ladder leaderboard. Players above the PROMOTION ZONE line are eligible for promotion and players below the DEMOTION ZONE line are at risk of being demoted. Players between the two zones will maintain their ladder level.

When do promotions happen?

Promotions and demotions are processed every Monday after 12am UTC. Note that you must accept your promotion in the company app before it becomes effective.

What happens if I miss a week?

Players who don't post any scores for an entire week are automatically in the demotion zone and will be demoted one ladder level the following week.
