Well I managed to get my High Score up to 759! Now just to find them other 100pts!  >:D

In that case it'll be a tie.  :)
I improved my score twice to 856 en then to 859
No doubt, farming is the key together with luck to first draw lots of tiles in the beginning to make small cities.  When I had 12 or 13 of those cities, I dropped the barn.  In my opinion, then joining to the main farm -while still increasing it with other cities- started being worth it. 

PS: man o man, was that a Carc-overkill for my eyes...  ;)

Man, this is addictive!
879 is my new high-score.  Not even close to Leven's whooping 900+ score but I guess that won't be for me...

Well, I managed to better my own score but I can't break 800 or even get especially close to it! Clearly everyone else is using voodoo to achieve such high scores, and I can't get involved with that because of my Diabetes :(

I played three games yesterday evening and got 680, then 679, then 679 again.

Today I got 748.

Screenshots attached...

900+ is crazy, well done Leven! I've only reached 800 once.

I'll throw the towel in the ring for the first place and stick to my 879.   ;)
I had an ultimate try with a nice plan of making a circular chain of cities and placing a barn on the outside of it and a farmer on the inside.  In doing so i would score the cities twice with the full points in the end (x3 for the farmer and x4 for the barn) but in didn't turn out in a 900+ score.  I only had time for one game to try that out but I liked the idea.

A little confused about semantics: because Leven takes both places 1 & 2, am I then the 2nd scoring player or the 3d scoring player?

Anyway, thanks to Decar for another great initiative and challenge.  +1 merit

965 points! :D
Now I think reaching 1000 is not impossible.

It reallly isn't. ;D
After several attempts over 900 points here is my first (and probably last) four-digit score: 1034!

Is that all? Seriously? My last game I got over 12,006 and I wasn't even trying. That's just disappointing... :P
