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).

Bomb, Cannon, and many of the Gunpowder cards can strongly effect gameplay, particularly in a destructive way

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.

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..

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!

Just played a board were I Donated down to 5 Capitals and bought 3 provinces at a time, then spent turns paying off debt. It was a weird non-engine board, and I won with 40 debt left

I had something else in my deck. Next game I made the mistake of not having anything, and that did not go well.

Turn 21

K buys a Curse
K takes 1 Debt from the Curse pile.
K gains a Curse
K repays 1 debt.
K buys a Tax
K adds 2 Debt to the Curse pile.
K buys a Tax
K adds 2 Debt to the Curse pile.

Turn 22

K plays a Throne Room again.
K plays an Ambassador
s gains a Curse.
K plays an Ambassador again.
s gains a Curse.
K plays a Throne Room again.
K plays an Ambassador.
s gains a Curse.
K plays an Ambassador again.
s gains a Curse

Just a couple days ago, I noticed that Tax put a token on the Curse pile and said to my opponent, "Yeah, that'll happen."  And here I am today taking the Tax to buy a Curse, then making it extra expensive for my opponent to do so...

(There was a bunch more going on this game obviously.  #4474233)

I mean, once you've Ambassadored over a Curse, your opponent doesn't need to buy one.  Since they now have a few.  Unless this was a Defiled Shrine game or something?
