I'd suggest storing the values in a file for later retrieval...or are you referring to the look and feel of a leaderboard?

Do you want the leaderboard to record the scores at real-time (as the game is running) or after the game is over?
Depending on that we can provide a solution.

I would like an after game link, or an application leader board to appear offering to record for the next time

Depending how you want to store it you could either store it locally in an XML file (So high scores are for that computer only) or if you want the game to report back to you and easy way would to setup a webservice and have a method called SubmitHighScore(int score); and when that hits the webservice it'll submit the high and add it to your database. And the second webservice call would be GetHighScores(); and it would select the top 10 records from your database and send it to the client.
