# Chess Game with Highest Scoring

Only one side has to have the score, the other can end with just a king for all I care.

What game ends with the highest piece scoring? A trivial answer would be 38, using fools mate (or scholars mate)

But of course, pawn promotion can be a factor, so can you do better than 38? Is 102 possible? If so what moves does it require? If not, what is the highest piece scoring?

PIECE SCORING:

• Pawn: 1
• Bishop: 3
• Knight: 3
• Rook: 5
• Queen: 9
• King: 0

*BONUS: When giving the game, give the quickest version to achieve the high score!

• If one side plays to let the other win, then theoretically isn't it 103? 9 queens and 2 each bishop, knight, and rook? Nov 23, 2014 at 16:34
• I think this question crosses the acceptable limit in Puzzling SE, you ask for moves and real game scenario

• This question appears to be off-topic because it is about Chess

• @skv so does the question asking for shortest game with 18 queens. I consider this a puzzle. Nov 23, 2014 at 17:04
• I disagree with others saying that this isn't a puzzle. I think it's mostly like my successful Generalized Path Guards puzzle: it takes a familiar problem (playing chess) and then asks for a challenging proof of a generalized version of the problem. This isn't a chess question per say because it asks about chess, but instead it is a chess-themed puzzle that uses the rules of chess to convey a lot of complicated constraints quickly.
