Slightly simplifying Dark Malthorp's remarkable solution, we get: $$\pi \approx A_k = \left[1 - \left( 2 \cdot \log\lceil \sqrt{3!_k}\rceil + \sqrt{4}\right)\div(\lfloor\sqrt{\lceil\sqrt 5\rceil!_k}\rfloor!)\right]^{\lceil\sqrt{6!_{k-1}}\rceil!} \div \lfloor\sqrt 7\rfloor \cdot \lceil\sqrt{\lceil\sqrt 8\rceil!_k} \rceil!\cdot \lfloor\sqrt{\sqrt{9}!_k}\rfloor!...

I believe this is the highest score possible with 100 or fewer operations: 99 operations; Score > $10^{10^{10^{10^{10^{10^{10^{10^{10^{10^{10}}}}}}}}}}$ As the rather absurd score above suggests, arbitrarily large scores are possible. In particular, we can construct a sequence of approximations $A_k$ that converge extremely rapidly to $\pi$, giving scores ...
