I previously posted a 450 point solo game using no special buildings.

I have now bested that by a significant amount and thought I would share the new high score: 489. Can anyone do better?

As a reminder, please don't read this if you want to experiment with solo strategy on your own. It will reveal some choices that might significantly ruin your enjoyment of the game.

This log is from JLeHavre, using the updated solo rules, with a limit of four on the marketplace. I did manipulate the order of the buildings and offer tiles. This score is a best case, and not something that should be aimed for in a completely random setup.

Thanks again for the computer version, Ponton.
________________

A quick note on the differences in strategy. I still focus on coke shipping, but with some small alterations:

I delay building the Colliery so I can finish gathering all the clay and wood I need. This lets me sell enough buildings off to buy the Wood Ship in Round 2 instead of Round 3.

I buy the Iron Ships and Steel Ships now instead of building them. This saves four trips to the Wharf and nets more overall points.

To facilitate this, I now visit the Cokery thrice instead of once, the third time being the game's antepenultimate turn.

I ship five times now instead of four, the first time in Round 6 to provide funds for the Steel Mill and Steel Ship.

I finally found a situation where grabbing money was a good choice.

UPDATED: Score now 489.
