    Hmm. I like the third (table) option best, I think, but cannot help you with which one would be easiest for a child…

    Of the three you have at the moment I like the top row best, but I think the middle row maybe has the potential to be better with minor changes…

    I’d do this:

    * Invent a custom way to write a number which means “this number is some number of points”. Given your game is colour-based already, I recommend a black numeral against a yellow disc-shaped background (hopefully looking a little like a coin or a medal, both of which suggest score). Modify the first three lines of text to use this representation.
    * Reword the bottom line, because the current wording is ugly (and maybe confusing – I can’t tell for sure because I already know what it’s trying to say). I tentatively propose: “Longer rows score +1 // for each extra card.” (where ‘//’ is the line break). Again, the “this is some points” notation described above should be used.

      Great suggestions, thank you! I’ve updated the test graphic, see what you think: http://www.holkar.net/wording_choices.png (including putting these new score numbers into the other designs as well)

    The grid at the bottom seems clearest to me.
