That's amazing Leven, however: I count 30 discarded tiles from the push you luck phase.  But I see 3 regular meeple plus your knave in the final photograph.  You recruit one knave for every 12 discarded tiles!

There were 36 discarded tiles. You can see two rows where the tiles are shifted to the right: these are the rows where the number of city edges plus the number of pennants exceeded the limit of 5. So I was playing with 36 tiles.

Excellent!

I didnt notice the pennants on those rows. Thanks for confirming!

Quick go of Solomo but only managed 144. Gambled with a couple of tiles left to complete it and gain bonus 15 points, but it didn't happen and meant joining the farms cost me so I was 12 points worse off in the end.

Excellent Rosco!

FYI thanks to Howland island (GMT -12) the contest will continue until noon-GMT tomorrow (aka Midnight Sunday)

Due to me forgetting that we're in BST, the contest should be ending at 1pm not noon UK time.

but Howland island is uninhabited.  So the folks in American Samoa still have 1 hour until midnight.

Apologies, to the ~300 non-permanent people living in GMT-12.

Congrats, Rosco, that was an excellent score. Unfortunately after reaching my personal best on Saturday I couldn't make further attempts at the weekend. Maybe next year.
