Okay, I'm pretty proud of this one:

Penultimate turn: draw deck, King's-Court Count, gain 3 coppers and +$9, play Doctor to trash the Coppers.
Final turn: draw deck, King's-Court Count, gain 3 coppers and +$9, play Ironmongers to draw Copper, discard Copper, draw Copper, discard Copper, draw Copper, for the $5 more I needed to end the game.

Had a game recently where
a) Druid (with Flame's Gift) was the only trashing and the only +buy.
b) my opponent ignored Druid and won.

Were there any villages?

Used Artisan to gain a Copper just now.

(The +$3 from Moneylender was necessary to get me to $8 for the last Province.)

I played Throne Room on Conspirator, then Conspirator, Conspirator, Torturer.

One Province left.

My opponents both chose to take a Curse rather than discard cards.

I mean, it was probably a bit mischievous of me to bother playing the Torturer; I didn't expect the subterfuge to work!

today I bought a second fortune....for the +buy.
it was the only +buy, but we had crowns, so it changed my buy from +2 to +4.

it allowed me to end the game on piles 1 turn earlier.

I kind of get the impression that a lot of people do this? I've never done it, but I think it was discussed before. How common is this?

for me, the frequency is like 1 out of 10.  I haven't played with fortune enough for it to have happened a second time yet. i would have bough literally any other +buy first.

In the absence of other things that matter, getting the second Fortune for the +buy is very slightly better than just going straight for the Provinces if Provinces are untouched.

I unboxed Dominion: Adventures, sorted the cards, and then went to sleep.

That's actually pretty rare.  will probably only happen 0-1 time in most player's lifetimes.

i might have achieved 6+ provinces in three turns...and that would have been a win, but the game would still be going.  my way the game had more modest points, but was over in the three turns including the second fortune purchase.

I unboxed Dominion: Adventures twice! Bought the English version (I already owned Dutch Base), unboxed it, decided mixing languages was ugly, chose the Dutch version of Adventures as a prize after finishing third in the Dutch Championships in 2015, unboxed it, sold the English version.

Yesterday I had the opportunity to do this IRL, but decided against it because I hit $4 and could buy better cards with it.

Getting rid of a Hovel is usually much better than buying a $4 card.

Early game, before you have any trashers, that could be true, given how automatically one would trigger the "discard hand to trash this" version of Hovel in the first two turns. If we're talking mid-game it depends, because the Hovel trash might not pay off as quickly as getting a 4-cost Village or something. And getting the opportunity to trash 2 Hovels means Masquerade is on the board already right?

Yeah, but it also means that it is still early game since otherwise you would have trashed all of your Shelters already.

Sure, but you never know for sure with the shuffle luck.

At any rate, maybe I'll think twice before passing Hovel with Masquerade.
