Ok, I have a teaser and I want to check with all of you on whats the most points.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

We have a 5x5 grid. That grid can be filled with numbers 1 thru 4. There are rules to placing these. Diagonal directions do not count as neighbours. 1 can be placed anywhere; 2 needs to have 1 as a neighbour; 3 needs 1 and 2; and 4 needs to have 1, 2 and 3 as neighbours. Whats the maximum sum for the whole grid and how should the numbers be placed.

P.S. Also - throw out those wacky number and whatever else theories and tell me why and how - the logic behind these. :)
