I played a 4-player game that ended with a tied score 3-3-3-3. Each player had their own three starting Estates and no other points. I took the last turn.
Surely someone would have noticed that the game was about to end and bought at least one victory card for an easy victory!
At least with my game all the other players had about 12 points each but their 8 or so curse cards dragged their score back to only 4 points. I had 15 points but only 3 curse cards.
