How did I get an "Impossi-bull" score of 168 points? Well in truth I did not. My best score so far as I write this, is an "Incredi-bull" 128 points. But I did find proof that technically it is possible to do so with a highly improbable sequence of dice rolls. In fact, I believe that 171 points is the highest possible score, and that relies on closing the fence with triples to leave 19 fence posts unused for up to 6 bulls in a field.

The following could happen if you roll nothing but doubles.

Yes - 171 is indeed the maximum theoretical score you can get.

By coincidence, I did a similar exercise during the game's development, detailed in the WIP thread here: Maximum Score

Good that we both came up with the same score
