You can pick up an average of around 150 points if you follow a basic strategy against an Easy CPU opponent in basic matches.

When you place your first tile, place a pawn on the farmland portion of the tile. From there on, work at completing cities while building the roads around a perimeter as wide as you can. Try not to let the roads cut off the farmland from the cities, and build small cities. You will get three points per city that touches your farmland when the game is over and final scores are tallied.

On easy, the CPU doesn't appear to ever claim farmland, so you can also choose to place your farmland pawns in your final moves, but I find that doing it early encourages you to keep the land open, and prevents you from missing the opportunity by having your pawns tied up on incomplete cities or roads.

Monasteries can earn you up to 9 points each if you surround them with tiles, but if you don't, you'll still get one point per adjacent tile at the end of the round.
