Let's say the opponent has no pieces on the board but you have all of your pieces. In what way should you place your pieces on the board so that you have the absolute maximum of support for each piece?
Supporting/defending the king doesn't count and it doesn't matter what color you're playing. There is a +1 point for every protection a piece gets. X-ray protection doesn't count. Doubled pawns are allowed (even tripled and so forth). Bishops have to be on opposite colors.
