I just played a 4 player game of Scythe, and had what could be the best single turn ever.

Power at 13.
Popularity at 16.
3 out of 4 buildings out.

With a bolster action, I was able to increase power to 16 (due to a previous upgrade) and increase popularity to 18 (due to the monument already being out). By taking the build half of that action, I put my last building out and increased popularity to 18 (due to a previous enlist).

This scored me 3 stars with just one turn!

Is that essentially the best turn ever (in terms of max stars in a turn)? Or is it possible to get 4 in one turn?

That's quite a combination of events. Hopefully you won the game.

Hypothetically, it could be possible to score more stars in a turn. Move with winning two combats (3 if using Saxony) without opposing workers, followed by building your last building, earning the popularity star with the enlistment. Is it likely? No, but it is possible. And if you want to throw an extra one in there for good measure, you could complete an objective card too for all six in a single turn.

That's a pretty good turn!

It looks like people have been able to place 6 stars on a turn, according to this thread: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1611763/most-stars-turn.
