In a solo game like this it's hard for players to know "what's a good score" when the designer hasn't provided some sort of scale.

If you'd like to use my scores as a starting point and comment if you happen to score higher for a particular city I will update this post accordingly.

Reinopolis: 59 points (Sundog)
Kanai Harbor: 65 points (Pjandy)
Hayachi Lake: 57 points (Mishko)
Hiron Hill: 67 points (Pjandy)
Sackson City: 61 points (Mishko)
Jurgenburg: 53 points (Mishko)
McKinley Estates: 57 points (ldpaulson)
Langton: 56 points (Mishko)
Mt. Magie: 62 points (Mishko)

Hey Mishko:

Great addition and some great scores you have there.

Here are my high scores to date (which are only as good as my record-keeping):

Reinopolis 50
Kanai Harbor 62
Hayachi Lake 55
Hiron Hill 56
Sackson City 51
Jurgenburg 52
McKinley Estates57

Langton 54
Mt. Magie 58

The higher scores are in bold. Didn't include our tie on Hiron Hill scoring.

Also, for comparison's sake, I am using an online die-rolling tool rather than rolling bones. What can I say? Quiet is often good. It keeps the dogs happy.

Trust this is useful!

Thanks for posting, ldp.

I've added user names after the scores in case someone gets extra competitive and wants to best others' scores and can quickly see if they have the high score.

For me it depends on where I'm playing the game as to what I'm using to roll dice. At work it's an app; at home I use dice.

This is a great idea! For future high scores, you might want to note which version of the rules you're using since we're about to post a new PnP update. One of the major changes is that each city card is now 6x6, but you use two city cards together as a 6x12 grid. We're also calibrating the scores a bit so they hover in the 70-100 range.

Taipen Inkstanbul 75 points. 8 monument zones! But only 2 parks meant the government zone was a bit under valued.

Hiron Kanai 120 points. Maxed out the G Zone this time... 75 points just for that.

Edit. I'm playing the 2 card version which us indicated by citing the 2 city cards I'm using.

My latest play was sloppy and made a mistake of adding one business zone and no more.... so my Gs were not worth much. Utilisation of the G zones is s big factor in final score. Not sure how much you can stray away from that.

Edit: Another game. Reroll de Janeiro Cairoll. 163 points. 120 from Government zone.

Congrats!

When you post, note the version of the game you've played. (Please look at the post upthread.)

I was just about to reply given you've been listing some scores.

As the designer notes:
"This is a great idea! For future high scores, you might want to note which version of the rules you're using since we're about to post a new PnP update. One of the major changes is that each city card is now 6x6, but you use two city cards together as a 6x12 grid. We're also calibrating the scores a bit so they hover in the 70-100 range."

I started this thread before the new "version" and I haven't played Pencil Park in a long time and am unfamiliar with the updated boards. To echo ldpaulson, note what version you are playing, which seems to be the later one, and I will update the OP soon.

Cheers.

Just a quick note on this thread in case anyone's looking for the PnP. In an agreement with a publisher, we've had to take it down. This is good news in the long term since it means Pencil Park will get a proper edition! The only bad news is in the short term Pencil Park won't be available. Thanks for your patience!
