Yesterday I won a game of Terra Mystica where I scored 51 points in endgame bonuses (uniquely first place in all four cults and largest area, plus 3 coins left over). I was playing against players with a few games behind them each but one only just connected his areas and mostly built up, not out, while the other had two totally separate areas. Neither competed cults very much either, letting me win two cults with 10/10/9/9.

I was playing Chaos Magicians and managed to end up with two towns, that I linked together via direct adjacency.
