    Ok, so not really a Strategy & Tips section post then? You do know people have scores in excess of 500,000, don't you?

    The game thinks it's a good score, since Augustus Caesar is the highest title. :)

    Some of the fanatics on this site score 200,000 on every map (see GOTM results). But I don't think they are really playing the game, they are just abusing the scoring formula. ;)

    The scoring system strongly favors early military victories. But the important thing is, did you have fun? :)

    Yeah the scoring system is flawed.

    Yeah, I normally don't bother finishing my games early just for the sake of a score. I'm enjoying my game too much at the moment, even though I could have won a space race at 1600. I'm going to try to win domination or maybe I'll get cultural by accident by then.
