This is my last post on this subject. I discovered a new strategy for the Lord of the Ring scenario (see also Lord of the Ring Solo: 400 points!!! and Lord of the Ring Solo: 420 points!!!). I breed no extra donkeys, construct only four roads, focus on early raft production, and rely heavily on these (eventually five) rafts for transportation of goods.

I think I now have squeezed the last few points out of this strategy. In this latest session, I improve over the previous session in two ways:
- I build the second mine one round earlier (round 13), which gives me one extra gold.
- I produce enough geese and start early with building wonder bricks (the first brick in round 7), which gives me one extra wonder row.

I end the game with 2 stocks, 3 sets of coins, 3 gold, and 5 wonder rows, for a total of 440 points!!! I wonder if this is an exceptionally high score or whether better solutions have been found (probably using a different strategy)?

I have detailed all steps of this new personal record in an excel sheet (see LordOfTheRing440.xls).

Wonderful!
I think it's the best score ever made.
You can summit your solution to Splotter Spellen.

Thank you!

I've noticed your attempts on Aaron Marriner's site (my login there is mokie). You should really try to build some water transporters. They are the key in this scenario. Both my and Werner Baer's solution rely heavily on them.

Good luck!
