Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
I'm pretty sure if I was 40 VPs down I'd surrender anyways
Richard is entirely correct here. If your opponent currently has 40+ VPs, it's likely because of a very valuable Objective under his control. Take that Objective (while also eliminating its occupants, btw) and you could now be winning the game all in one fell swoop.
