I hit 52 once with an all city building run, with a city hall/palace/triumphant arch combo. Version 1, no expansion. Could probably go higher with a harbor & customs office.

^^^You know the game ends when someone builds 12 buildings, right?

We've been in the high 40s a bunch, not sure we've cracked 50 yet.

Not possible with 12 cards in tableau unless you are both deliberately not building and just shoving cards under the chapel and harbor.

My 12 year old daughter hit 52 -- early library then hunted through the deck and built a chapel (ending with 14 cards there) and a palace! Her parents wound up with 42 and 40!

I've managed 50 on a couple of occasions, but I'm pretty sure I lost one of those!

I hit 64 yesterday, largely on the strength of an early chapel and harbor, with heavy use of both. (2nd ed expansion)

However, we house rule the game ends with the 13th building; basically, we decided the free indigo plant doesn't count. Not sure how much that mattered; maybe I wouldn't have been over 60.
