I still play SMP every couple of months. I finished my latest game today. I played at Adventurer Level, specialty in Navigation, and retired at age 27 in Good Health. The key to my early success is that quickly after starting the game, I caught an Indian War Canoe and made this my ship for the rest of the game. I got the Iron Scantlings, Cotton Sails, Copper Plating and extra rigging to hold more men. This sped up the game by at least two years.

I married a Beautiful English Girl, rescued all four relatives, knocked off Monty's hideout, found 5 treasurers, knocked off all 9 named pirates. I made Duke in France but only Count or Baron in the other 3 countries. I found all four lost cities. I finished with 109 points and retired as a Governor. I could have played longer and got 126 points but would have retired at age 32 to 34 and been in Fair health. I'm happy with this game.

Congratulations!
Being happy when you play the game is what it's all about.

I see it as a tradeoff between points and wealth vs. age and health. If you retire young and have your health then that counts for a LOT.
