Q: Can we play to a higher number of points if we like?

A: Yes. Obviously, this can make the game take longer. Raising the target point totals higher than following is not recommended:

5 players: 60 (5 bombs: 0+9+10+11+12 / 4 loads: 20)
4 players: 80(6 bombs: 0+9+10+11+12+13 / 5 loads: 25)
3 players: 90 (7 bombs: 0+9+10+11+12+13+13 / 6 loads: 30)
2 players: 150 (10 bombs: 0+9+10+11+12+13+13+14+14+15 / 9 loads: 45)

Did you mean Chain Reaction which is a different card game? If so just 15 points makes the game longer. You can do 12 as well. Both were tested.

What does this mean? (6 bombs: 0+9+10+11+12+13 / 5 loads: 25)

It's been a while since I wrote that but I believe it is a calculation to show that there are still enough potential points in the game for each player to be able to win. In other words, you cannot be shut out from winning due to not having enough potential points in all of the bomb designs that you pick up. If you raise the points above the maximum recommended limits you risk running into that situation.
