    I have been playing quite a number of games recently, trying different types of playstyle.

    But the score still reluctantly stayed at below 1000... I was often titled Bloody Mary, or worse.

    Any tips to boost the score to above 2000?

    I saw the parameters for score victory were "empire", "religion", "civic", "great people", "wonder" and "technology ". Not really sure how much each of them will contribute to the score.

    By my experience, early domination victory seems to give a very low score, while cultural victory with a couple of wonders gives higher, but still low.

    And my higher scores came from science victory, in which I often used my tech advantage to conquer a number of civs. Still I only achieved Bloody Mary (Mary I). I guess the longer game length will allow more room to get more scores?

    I could be wrong, but I think the single most important factor (in terms of game score) is empire size, which would be total number of tiles under your control. So bigger maps will help you achieve higher scores (all other things being equal).

    Look at the "Formula Thread" under Strategy and Tips for details. Empire score is the sum of (cities x 5 + districts x 3 + population). This is by far the largest contributor in high score game (e.g. see 6otM 20 in Game of the Month forum). Religion contributes a fixed amount per belief (no matter how many converts you have), not very useful... Civics and techs are 2pts each (including each repeat of Future Civic and Future Tech). Wonders are 5pts each (same as a new city), great people are 3pts each (same as a new district).

    tl;dr: Cover the whole map with cities, harvest all the resources and trees to build districts and grow population. This is why it's easier to pump score on larger maps.

    Thanks for the tips:) I have been spamming cities to my maximum in huge maps but never sought to build districts nor boosting their growth... thats why I can only achieve Mary I...

    But how can I manage to balance the amenity if we have high populations and city numbers? I have built entertainment and related buildings in every city already, and grabbed as many luxuries as I could, but still they showed me red faces....

    You need to own the entire map and manage the population a bit. Get all amenities, you will have the coliseum somewhere which helps and Brazilian stadium is the big key to late happiness.

    Yeah you are right. I just tried a long game with Rome, conquering every city I could find and build districts in an insane rate. It gave me title as Catherine the Great:) Trajan was especially fit for this purpose as his unique district offers bonus amenity.
