I suppose since this game has much less randomness in setup comparing to Agricola it is easier to get a consensus on what is considered a good score. The rulebook suggests 100+, but does it take player count into consideration? What are your thoughts?

From previous discussions, it appears that player count is definitely a consideration. 2p games seem to be much lower scoring games than 4p or 5p games for example...

All of my games have been solo or 2p though, so I don't think I can give a more objective answer.

My one player games at usually 85-96 points.
Two player we're anywhere between 50-75. 3&4 players are about 65-90.
I know some seem like big ranges, but skill level and familiarity have a lot to do with that.

Solo I've gotten 110ish (2nd try). Heard upwards of 140.
My first 4 player game (everyone else new to the game): 60-80 and a 100.

In my first two games (introductory version) I scored: 65, 71. Probably the full version gives higher chances of getting more points... I guess.
