It really doesn't/shouldn't change the way the '1'-tiles are played. You are still trying to play every other tile that you possibly can before it, because you're almost always going to be able to place it when no other pieces fit, and you are still going to use it when it opens up a route to unused area.

What you have really done is just take out the bonus of playing all of your tiles successfully, which seldom happens with 4-player games or if you play 3-player game with the Trigon rules (leave the outermost squares unused).

Your statement:

At the end of each round players add up the total number of squares in the pieces that they have remaining; this constitutes their score.

Statement from my printed copy
Each player counts the number of unit squares in his/her remaining pieces (1 unit square= -1 point).

I can't understand it as different, let alone simplified.

Whether or not players are discouraged from playing the singleton does not really simplify the scoring.

I too am baffled how this is "simplified scoring". It just seems to be playing 4 games instead of 1 and summing your scores from the 4 games...?

Sigh. I should have gone with my instinct and quoted the OP.
