It's actually the complete opposite of that - possibly because Paul didn't
give enough details of the system. At the end of the game:
1st place: 38 points
2nd place: 14 points
3rd place: 7 points
Shared places share the points.
1 point per centre
1 point for playing.
So 6 in a 6-5-5-5-5-5-3 (45 pts) is better than a 17-17 (44 pts), and much
better than a 16 in a 17-16-1 (31 pts).
It is very much a positional and tactical game. Alliances will change from
turn to turn, and people will only work with you if it's in their interests
that turn. Never do anything for someone in return for something else -
they won't return the favour unless it is in their interests to do so. Only
