Are Duplicate megaturns viable?

I had a game where I had over 4-5 Bridge Trolls in play, and I duplicated 4-5 Provinces to end the game.

Even without cost reducers, you can empty an Alt-VP pile in a single turn with Duplicates.

artificer might be the one time where you get a scout


oftentimes in artificer games i'm finding that you can overdraw with several artificers left and then just try to tactics it out by discarding and drawing. the fact that artificer is a non-terminal that immediately rewards cards to throw away and also makes it really easy to just get a card during a turn means that getting scout during the end-of-turn discard-and-draw is feasible; oftentimes you wouldn't be able to draw cards to discard with as many artificers as you have and since scout draws as many cards as you have to discard for it the opportunity cost might be exactly 0. however, as always, if you don't have victory cards then it super sucks and is not worth getting at all ever

I thought you thought it was a slip because I said 'Jake's partners' instead of 'Roadrunner7671.'

I cannot begin to tell you have many games I've played where people do this.

Yesterday I was playing a game with Inheritance and Crossroads.  I inherited Crossroads, and then on my next hand I had all my estates together.  I played the first one, but then I had no more Actions.  "What?!  This is a bug!  This is an outrage!  This is...oh, exactly what is supposed to happen"

Crossroads reads "If this is the first time you've played a Crossroads this turn, +3 Actions".  Inheritance reads "your estates gain the abilities and types of that card..." but not the name.  Your estates are still estates, and so they don't trigger the "If you played a Crossroads" clause because you didn't play a Crossroads, you played an Estate.  I tried to salvage the game by buying a bunch of Crossroads, the idea can still work out OK if you start your chain with a real Crossroads, but in the end my opponent selected a better card to inherit and steamrolled me. 

So watch out!  Inheriting Crossroads may seem like a decent idea, but it does not work the way you might think it would.  You have to read the fine print

The best reason to lynch Haddock is the meltdown we get to witness on the wagon runup. I mean, we should totally wagon him every day just for the lulz.

It's not even that absurd: You ferry BoM, buy a bunch of them, then ferry the 6 cost you wnat to play a lot.

That's a lot of work and a wasted turn. Just Ferry the card you want anyways.

Is it really? It's not like buying Ferry more than once a game is all that out of the ordinary.

Why put Ferry on BoM, then put Ferry on something else so that BoM can emulate a card that will likely run out quickly if it is that good? Waste of time.

This shouldn't be that hard to figure out, but obviously if you want a lot of BoMs to emulate a variety of different cards, and then you also want BoM to emulate an expensive card. It seriously doesn't take that long with a few extra buys and some thinning, economy, etc.

When you have a Ferry token on King's Court, your Giant can trash your opponent's KC.
