Fill in the boxes with 12 numbers chosen from the list, one digit per box. The given numbers can be written from left to right, right to left, up, or down. And you canīt use a number more than once (unless it's listed twice). When all the boxes are filled, sum up all digits in the boxes (not the numbers that you used). This is YOUR score.

Whatīs the maximum score YOU can achieve?

Note: this meant to be a contest among users so, to make it fair, avoid using a computer. We are not asking for the maximum score that can be obtained, we are asking for the maximum score that YOU can achieve. And you may post YOUR SCORE in the subject of your comment. The winner (after a reasonable time) will gain an apple (the fruit, not Steve Jobsī).

Hints/Tips numbers in decreasing order of total digits--may help | Comment 5 of 26 |

Here the 4-digit numbers are listed in descending order of the total of their digits, showing also that total. Even using this, my computer program (which is disallowed anyway), was taking forever to run, and when stopped had only gotten as high as 233.
