Even More Ultimate King Domino

alt text

So yesterday I talked about Kingdomino and what the maximum possible score is in two player 7 x 7 grid mode is (http://goparker.com/post/2018-05-14-ultimate-king-domino/). I showed a possible contender (267 points) and asked whether you could do better, throwing down the gauntlet. Well I picked the gauntlet back up again and did better myself.

286 points! The table below shows the breakdown for the image shown above. I think this may be an actual maximum. I went through several iterations to get here.

Colours Number of Tiles Number of Spots Total Points
Blue Squares 1 0 1 x 0 = 0
Grey Circles 17 5 17 x 5 = 85
Pink Triangles 3 0 3 x 0 = 0
Yellow Stars 12 6 12 x 6 = 72
Green Crosses 9 6 9 x 6 = 54
White Hearts 6 10 6 x 10 = 60
Central Castle 10
Used all tiles 5
total 286

It is slightly annoying that there are 4 non-scoring tiles there (the pink and blue ones), but there was more value in sacrificing them to bolster the other colours.

So I ask again: Can you do better? This time I carefully remove my glove before slapping it sharply across your cheek.
