Solitaire Carcassonne

The other day I came across this thread on BoardGameGeek on a suggested way to play solitaire Carcassonne. Today at work during my lunch time I decided to try it out. I separated a random selection of original Carcassonne tiles and also the Inns & Cathedrals tiles into four piles of 19 tiles. I played the game over four rounds using the original starting tile each round plus one of the 19 tile piles for a total of 20 tiles each round. Each round, using only 4 meeple, I tried to score the highest points I could.

Round 1: 28
Round 2: 56
Round 3: 15
Round 4: 63
Total: 162 points

It took me about 30 minutes from set-up to to the game end. Although it was a pleasant diversion it didn't compare to playing against live opponents.
