It took me longer than it should have to relise that you could just keep the squence of 1 connecting to 2, 2 to 3, ect. so spent far too long trying to automatically determine which points were not connected. But once I figured that out the rest was simple enough.

Catching up on festive challenges - here's my solution:

Alright, I got it done with an iterative macro like most others I see here - only not as efficiently.
