For the first time ever, I just got a second Champion.  It came in a Feodum game after the Silvers were gone -- didn't need/want the Hero anymore.  I could have also Upgraded it into a Gold (or Harem), but didn't even want to do that.

If it was a Feodum game, why not leave it at Treasure Hunter?
...

I think what Chris is trying to get at is why did he upgrade a second traveler past treasure hunter in the first place (meaning, why did he have a hero)?

If I remember correctly, I had 2 Treasure Hunters and 3 Warriors at one point.  So, already had enough Treasure Hunters, and Warrior was good for the draw.  Then once I was thin enough, didn't need the draw as much anymore, hence 1 Warrior->Hero.  Or something like that.  Keeping more Treasure Hunters would have slowed me down mid-game.

Played a game on ShuffleIT yesterday, wish I'd saved the log. My opponent's 1 Witch managed to give out more Curses than my 3 Witches combined (6-4). Partly due to him playing his Militia on the 2nd Shuffle while I had 5 Coppers in hand.  Then my Witch missing the reshuffle every time. He was buying Markets while I bought more Witches. And his 1 Throne Room lined up with his 1 Witch, while my 1 Throne Room never lined up with any of my 3 Witches.

The craziest part.... Towards the end I had several Gardens, and the score was actually neck and neck. On the second-to-last turn, I bought the second-to-last Gardens, even though it was extremely likely that my opponent would then buy the last Gardens for the win. I also accidentally bought a Copper, even though I had more for an Estate instead. Then, by some miracle, my opponent could only come up with the next turn. So then I bought the last Gardens.

I lost by the tie-breaker because I'd gone first. If I had bought the Estate instead of the Copper on the second-to-last turn, I actually would have won.

I just played a game in which I was so much ahead that the best play was to buy Donate just to trash 5 Provinces from my deck since that 100% guaranteed the win (I had all the Grand Markets so I could triple Province for sure as long as I didn't have the stop cards, and he didn't have extra gains so he couldn't have ended the game in the meantime).

Lord Ratington tries that strategy often; though usually not when he's ahead.

Conspiracy theory: Lord Ratington is Donald X's shuffle it profile for when he is really tired or wants to try out new strategies.

Turn 26 - AJD
A plays an Expand.
A trashes a Colony.
A gains a Province.


(It was the last Province, and I was ahead by more than 4)

We were tied at 3 VP each, Ruins and Fishing villages were empty, and Dame Josephine was the last knight.  My opponent missed buying her on his last turn.  I didn't:  Dame Jo for the WIN!

I opened ambassador and my opponent immediately responded with like, 3 beggars in response.

I just kept the ambassador as an effective dead card and had 2 less dead cards than he did in what was pretty much a BM + smithy game after that..

I just played a game where my opponent Mined a Capital into Silver (so that they could then Remake it into a $4).

Won a tournament game without ever colliding any of my 6 provinces with any of my 4 tournaments.

Edit: Meanwhile, my opponent got 3 prizes.

Well, that means your opponent had a Bag of Gold in their deck, so that's an advantage for you  ;)

4P game. Started building a modest duration engine: Two lookouts, two Walled Villages, two Haunted Woods, two Squires, two Golds. Other players started following a similar path, trashing their Estates and emptying the WV/HW piles. Piled out Squires for a 3/2/0/-9 win.

Wolf Den FTW!
