The situation to win with the lowest theoretical possible points would be if all but one game ended in a draw (yielding one point to each player). All but two players would end up with 14 points one would end up with 13 (the loser) and one would end up as winner with 16 points. (14 games each player seven with white and seven with black)

Sorry I hadn't read that post... if only winning and losing games would be possible it will still be the same symmetrical position everyvbody wins with white and one player manages to win once with black. Then we'd have: 24 points to win.
But this situation is as theoretical as the one before.
In fact I know of at least one octet won with 29. (including draws evidently)
