Absolutely.

 

I looked up the manual earlier and here are the point targets:

Tossing a paper into a subscriber's paperbox: 750

Tossing a paper onto a subscriber's porch: 300

Breaking a non-subscriber's window: 300

Hitting a bush, tombstone, lamp or garbage can: 300

Hitting a round target in training course: 200

Hitting a box-shaped target in training course: 100

Picking up an extra bundle of papers: 50

 

After reviewing this list it looks like you could score more points by retaining a single subscriber and just wreaking havoc on the rest of the neighborhood. It's rare I hit the "paperbox" and breaking a window is worth the same as getting it on the porch. I've never played the game like that, but that might be an option.

 

Either way, you get a good bonus at the end of the training course. According to the manual you get 100 points for every second left on the timer when you complete it.

Ha, that's more hilarious than I thought. I meant to look at the manual last night but forgot.

Another point: non-subscriber houses have lots of windows, but subscriber houses have only 1 porch!

Still I think I may want to keep a few subscribers just in case I miss the porch or ride by without any papers in my bag.

...which is basically what I'm doing anyway by the time Thursday or Friday rolls around!

So it looks like for now I'll probably just keep playing like I have been...

 

45,500

We're on the honor system here so pictures/screenshots aren't normally required. If your score is insanely high it's appreciated. Otherwise, feel free to post your score without them.
