Scoring System: Detour98F
If you survive to 1905 then you get a point (whether you're eliminated later or
If you are in the draw at the end of the game then you get a point.
You get a point for every supply centre you own.
If you are in the outright lead then you get a bonus of the difference between
you and the next best player.
If you are first on the board you get 4 bonus points, if you are second you get
3 bonus points, if you are third you get 2 bonus points, if you're fourth you
get 1 bonus point. (If there's a tie you get the points for the lower position
-ie equal 2nd both get 2 bonus points)
You add each person's points to get a raw score. The next step is to standardize
the game. Divide each person's raw score with the sum of all the raw scores and
then multiply by 100. This generate a percentage for everyone. So an entire game
is worth 100 points.
If you solo you get 110 points and everyone else gets *nothing*.
