The thing about high scores are that they often indicate bad play as much as good.

In particular, you can get a very high score if you buy the high value engineers, the 1 point factories and run over them twice. To which the response is, only if they let you.

617!?

I got 497 today and thought it was exceptional. 617 is immense.

I don't think I ever broke the 500+ because I play against good opponents, but I think I once got into the 490+ and I never score under 400. That's in 2 player games. Maybe in 4 player games with an extra round you can score better more easily.

My 497 was in a 3 player game with one good player and one moderate player.

To score 497 points in a 3-player game is fantastic. It's almost as good as scoring 617 in a 4-player game. Having an extra round playing the 4-player game is huge...as you can score an addition 150 points or so. Typical great scores in a 3-player game would be in the low 400's.

To score crazy like 617 usually requires other players committing game "sins"...like throwing away the 1-engine and let someone with a lot of engineers to score big points with it as a factory 2-3 times, or not taking the 9-train/factory and let someone take it as a factory.

In my 617-point game, I had 2 9-factories and scored like 60 end-game points from them.

In the final of the Russian Railroads tournament at WBC this year, the winner scored 575 (4-player game).

I'm guessing there will be details available in the event summary when it is posted (usually in November):

Can you have two 9 factories? The online implementation does not allow this.

There's no reason you shouldn't be able to... it would just be pretty difficult. In my games, unless using the German Railroads expansion, I haven't actually ever seen someone successfully activate a 9 factory.

Activate a 9 factory is normal in a +3 players game, in 1v1 is hard to archive.

If you spend all your resources triying to activate two 9 factories, ceratinly you would'n reach the requieriments for the Final Scoring Cards you get.

Zowie! I scored my highest 375 in a 3 player and was very happy.

St. Petersburg / Kiev / Factory was the route I have been most successful with. Time to give Trans Siberian / Factory a few plays. Wow I am just amazed at 500-600+ ! I have a long way to reach.
