For a gaming leaderboard. players will be able to compete with each other through a leaderboard.

When a new score is added, it is inserted in to a table that is scoped to the game Each game is limited to the top 10 scores, so when a new score is added, one has to be removed if there are already 10 items. This should also add the current date and time in the table so we know when a game score was logged.

You can use eosio::current_time_point() to get time in microseconds in smart contract.

#include <eosio/system.hpp> //include system header

uint32_t now() {
   return (uint32_t) (eosio::current_time_point().sec_since_epoch());

Add a scoreTime field in your score table

struct [[eosio::table]] table {
   uint32_t scoreTime; //add scoreTime in your table
   //other table fields

Add score time while inserting new score in your table.

table.emplace(get_self(), [&]( auto& row ) {
   row.score = 10;
   row.scoreTime = now();
   //other table fields
