From the first game of RftG, I've had a very set way of keeping track of scores. This makes it fun to look at my old scores for games.

example:
Erik 16+0+7=23
Mike K 8+7+6+6=27
Trevor 15+6+4+6=31
Jason 16+14+0=30

The first number is how much the cards in play were worth, not counting 6 developments, second number is the victory point chips, and 3+ numbers are the 6 developments. So in the above game we can see that Erik didn't consume any cards for points, Mike and Trevor both had two 6s and I had none.

After July 30th, I've been keeping track of what card a player started with as well. (Yes, I'm now feeling an urge to go find my old score sheets and update the info on the geek.)

Does anyone else record things to this detail or more?

And by the way, you should seek help.

But, I'm already writing down scores to make the addition easier, error free and check-able, so inputting them into the geek seems like the next logical step.

Not in an organized way, but I keep a notepad, and we have a matrix:

....Player1.....Player2.....Player3.....Player4
VP
()
?

VP is chips
() is actually a 'crossed Zero' symbol which means 'intrinsic value' - not sure I remember the origin of that, but it's what I do. Probably was meant as 'world' versus a diamond for 'development', but we combine those into 'intrinsic (printed) value' now.
? is each 6/? by itself

We sometimes note startworld, I rarely note what the 6/?s are.

If I had more energy, I might make a scoresheet to keep in the box that keeps all of that information.

For the most part, NO. If we're playing many games in sucssession, or going to start a new game soon, then we just count 'em up aloud or in our heads. When playing with newbies/beginners, we may break it down piecemeal like you do.....

pts at face value
VP chips
6 cost dev cards, of which each 6 cost dev card may get its own number/figure

Just like doing the Trade/Consume action step-by-step so that anybody still confused about it can see it "in slow motion", this would allow newbies to know how the final scores were derived.

I would agree there, except...
1) given the volume of discussions on strategy we have here for this game, these statistics can come in VERY MUCH handy use.
2) he sure as hell ain't alone. Not on BGG. If people custom paint miniatures, use dice tower/trays (let alone build them), and make VERY DETAILED (perhaps even overkill) strategy guides on games

.... then there ain't nothing wrong with keeping detailed RftG stats. I will admit, I'm kinda interested in them myself

Of course we do. It's always nice to look back to statistics and games we played.

One thing that I regret is not writing down the games we played years ago. Records are very precious data.

The wife and I have played over 200 games of two player and I wish that we had kept track of our scores.

We're now trying to play several series of games with each player getting to try each starting world against every other starting world. A set of 100 games will allow each matchup to be played five times by each player.

We have made such a scoresheet and kept a record of all our games. Similar to the above (based on the one from San Juan); we record VP obtained from developments, separate from those from worlds. We always record each 6/? in play.
