Max Points From Green Cards

Don't know the answer yet, but I think it's a pretty interesting question: what's the most points you can have at the end of a solitaire isotropic game, disregarding VP tokens?


Like I said, I don't know the answer yet, but here's something to consider:There are 8 Kingdom victory cards. A spread normally has only 10 cards in it.


Edit: I've got an answer, which I worked out with the help of a friend (who will no doubt be named Psly4mne if he ever registers here, which he should...). We have a google doc explaining it here.

There are 9 Kingdom victory cards. A spread normally has only 10 cards in it.
I can only find 8, not sure what I'm missing.
I can get 909 points.

Kingdom: King's Court, Harem, Nobles, Fairgrounds, Duke, Bridge, Island, Gardens, Black Market, Great Hall(bane), Vineyard
BM decK: Young Witch, Tournament, 23 other actions that give +actions/+cards/+buy

Points:
163 from Colony/Province/Duchy/Estate(including starting 3)
56 for Harem/Nobles/Island/Great Hall
64 for Dukes
216 for Vineyards(83 actions)
160 for Fairgrounds(50 unique cards)
256 for Gardens(158+35+94+30+3 curses=320 cards)
-3 curses
909 total

It's better to have actions than Harems.

I'd love to see an Isotropic records page, like the highest number of victory points actually realized, and the most money in a turn, most buys, etc.

Same for great hall, which should be in the BM deck for maximization - there are only 8 GHs as opposed to 10 of the other card, which matters to Gardens and Vineyards. Also MAYBE Nobles, but there I actually need to do specific math I'm too lazy for.

Elyv -- close, but we've got you beat!


WanderingWinder -- turns out GH is better in the spread, though barely. Nobles is not even close: it's 32 points for the nobles vs. 18 points for a random action.

For future readers -- my original smalltext had said there were 9 Kingdom Victory cards, which was wrong.

With rogerclee's modification, I get up to 930. Is that enough?

Edit: Oh I see you've answered that in the OP now.
