What’s the Maximum Score?

A new Sherlock Holmes mystery!

The great detective returned with tobacco and looked at the 15-different fan solution (see 15-fan-solution) shown by Dr. Watson and Mrs. Hudson.

“Well, well!”, he said. “So, for you to find a hand with a maximum score for hand value, it should take no more time for me to light my pipe, I guess?”

Question: Please, construct a hand containing maximum score for hand value.

Hand is composed of:
- concealed kong RRRR;
- concealed kong GGGG;
- concealed kong BBBB (white);
- concealed kong EEEE (both seat and prevalent wind);
- standing S;
winning on south replacing the last kong with the last tile from the wall.

This hand scores:
- 4 Kongs (88);
- 4 Concealed Pungs (64);
- Big 3 Dragons (88);
- All Honors (64);
- Out on Replacement Tile (8);
- List Tile Draw (8);
- Fully Concealed Hand (4);
- Seat Wind (2);
- Prevalent Wind (2);
- 8 Flowers (8*1).
Total: 336 points. This means 1,008 points for the winner, and 1,344 points of difference!

If the new regulations allow them, 2 Concealed Kongs may be added twice, hence a hand which scores 352 points.
