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).

It was a lack of attention. The deadline (is in the page that I printed) was 04/30/96 for the "contestants"(?) sent a score.

The site was : www.pacificrim.net/~anthonyp/... and thereīs something after this that doesnīt appear in the page that I printed. We had to print the page, place the numbers, achieve out total, and sent it to the address that was given (The owner was from Blaine, WA).

The change I made was very simple: I substituted each digit in one number to another, 1 unit less. If the digit was 0, I wrote 9. If someone would try with the "original numbers", do the reverse, and I know that the maximum is around 220.
