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.
