The first / second in a room score 4 / 2 points.
Couldn't that just as well be 2 / 1 points?

Um, yeah, I'm wondering about this too. Also, I will mostly be playing this with just 2-players, so the scoring might as well be just 1 pt per room.

Not necessarily. It depends on how you choose to interpret the scoring rules for two players. You could interpret the official rules that scoring two points for the 'second position' in any given room requires that you have placed at least one chip in that room. Thus it would be possible for a person to score four points, and the other player to score nothing. I haven't played enough games with two players to see how this scoring interpretation compares to the alternative (where the second player scores two points whether or not they have actually placed a chip in a given room).

Since ties do not lead to dividing the points, there are only 2 possible score one gets from a room - 4, 2 or 0 points. They could have just as easily gone with 2, 1 and 0 instead.

The only plausible reason to go 4-2-0 I can think of is that a longer score track looks better on the board.

Also, perhaps that dealing with even numbers only is easier for most people.
