1. take 4 meeples, 20 tiles + starting tile
2. play tiles, place meeples and score as in basic game
3. repeat with next 20 tiles
4. try and beat previous best score
5. simple!

A good score with Inns and cathedrals expansion 60-70 (If you get a cathedral!)

I play with 4 seys of 20 - put any spare tiles back in the box

4 hands takes about 10 minutes

last time I scored:
68, 57, 81 (city with cathedral) & 2 (yes 2!blush large incomplete and unclaimed city, long incomplete road)

Let me know if you can beat that (81 & 2!)
I have been scoring 4 points per city for farms.

Thanks
Michael

best score 80 so far.

I use a Builder piece on score board to mark highest score so far.

solitaire version is entertaining. I break it up into 20 tiles with 4 stacks of 5. Makes shuffle and variance between plays easier.

As of right now, I only have the base set, without any expansions. (Well, technically it came with The River, but I didn't use it.)

I made 3 stacks of 23 tiles, put the starter tile down and tossed the two extra tiles back in the box. (The poster above used 4 sets of 20, but with the base game, 3 sets of 23 will have to do.) I used 4 meeples as reccomended.

My scores:
Game 1: 54, 64, 25 - Total 143
Game 2: 47, 78, 65 - Total 180

The two games I played went rather quickly, and as far as solo variants of games that don't have official solo rules, this was a pretty fun way to kill 20 minutes or so.

Well, I managed to get 60 as a high score playing 20 tiles/4 meeples 3 rounds of vanilla Carcassonne. Looks like I need more practice before my group plays for the second time on Friday.
